The Nashville Predators and New Jersey Devils meet Thursday in NHL action at the Prudential Center.

The Nashville Predators look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Nashville Predators are averaging 3.3 goals per game and are scoring on 16.9 percent of their power play opportunities. Filip Forsberg leads Nashville with 16 goals, Roman Josi has 34 assists and Ryan Ellis has 90 shots on goal. Defensively, the Nashville Predators are allowing 3.2 goals per game and are killing 73.6 percent of their opponents power plays. Pekka Rinne has given up 83 goals on 809 shots faced and Juuse Saros has allowed 64 goals on 610 shots. The Nashville Predators have allowed four or more goals in six of their last nine games.

The New Jersey Devils could use a win after losing six of their last nine games. The New Jersey Devils are averaging 2.6 goals per game and are scoring on 13.9 percent of their power play opportunities. Blake Coleman leads New Jersey with 19 goals, Nikita Gusev has 21 assists and P.K. Subban has 124 shots on goal.

The Predators are 1-4 in their last 5 vs. Eastern Conference, 1-6 in their last 7 Thursday games and 1-8 in their last 9 games playing on 0 days rest. The Devils are 26-56 in their last 82 games as a home underdog, 3-7 in their last 10 vs. Western Conference and 3-8 in their last 11 home games. The under is 3-1-1 in Predators last 5 overall. The over is 11-5 in Devils last 16 overall. The Predators are 4-0 in the last 4 meetings in New Jersey and 5-1 in the last 6 meetings. The road team is 7-2 in the last 9 meetings. The favorite is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.

The Nashville Predators have won five of the last six meetings against the Devils, and I guess that's good enough reason to make them favorites in this spot. However, we're getting a rested team in the New Jersey Devils at home with plus money. The Nashville Predators have not only been poor on the end of back to backs, but they've also been horrible defensively for much of this month, an issue that's not going to be fixed playing on tired legs. There's good value with the New Jersey Devils in the underdog role.
