The Avalanche are 3-7 in the last 10 meetings in Nashville and 5-16 in the last 21 meetings. The road team is 7-1 in the last 8 meetings. The favorite is 36-15 in the last 51 meetings. The over is 15-6-1 in the last 22 meetings in Nashville. The under is 7-1 in the last 8 meetings.

The Colorado Avalanche have been as consistent as they come and have run into another hot streak, but they're on the end of a back to back and playing a team that's owned them over the years. The Nashville Predators have lost the last two games against the Avalanche, but they've also won 76.1 percent of the last 21 meetings. Given the history, the improved play of the Nashville Predators and the rest advantage, I have to lean toward the home team in this intriguing matchup.
