The Hurricanes are 8-3 in their last 11 Monday games and 1-4 in their last 5 overall. The Predators are 4-1 in their last 5 home games and 40-13 in their last 53 Monday games. The under is 7-3 in Hurricanes last 10 overall. The over is 5-2 in Predators last 7 overall. The Hurricanes are 4-0 in the last 4 meetings in Nashville and 7-1 in the last 8 meetings. The road team is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.

The Nashville Predators have been one of the more impressive teams in the league through their first couple games and are probably a tough team to step in front of on the short sample size. However, the Carolina Hurricanes are a club that has high expectations on the season and has been rather impressive defensively through two games. The Hurricanes have also had a great deal of success against the Predators in recent meetings, which includes four straight wins in Nashville. For the plus money, I lean toward the Canes on the road.
