The Bruins are 35-17 in their last 52 Tuesday games, 0-5 in their last 5 vs. Western Conference and 4-11 in their last 15 overall. The Predators are 8-3 in their last 11 Tuesday games, 4-9 in their last 13 home games and 1-4 in their last 5 overall. The under is 5-0 in Bruins last 5 overall. The over is 9-2-1 in Predators last 12 overall. The Bruins are 0-5 in the last 5 meetings in Nashville. The home team is 18-5 in the last 23 meetings. The favorite is 13-3 in the last 16 meetings.

The home team has won eight of the last 10 meetings between the Bruins and Predators, and Nashville just beat Boston on the road a couple of weeks ago. Both of these clubs are playing losing hockey overall lately, so this is a spot where I usually side with the home ice and let the cards fall where they may. It's the one clear edge we have in a matchup between teams that can't produce two points. Give me the Predators.
