The Predators are 4-1 in their last 5 Saturday games and 0-4 in their last 4 road games. The Lightning are 63-28 in their last 91 home games and 47-19 in their last 66 overall. The under is 3-1-1 in Predators last 5 overall. The under is 3-1-3 in Lightning last 7 home games. The Predators are 4-0 in the last 4 meetings in Tampa Bay and 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.

The Tampa Bay Lightning are the better team here and are tough to bet against at home. However, the Lightning just lost back to back games where the offense just couldn't get going and they've now been held scoreless in each of their last five periods. The Nashville Predators aren't exactly a pushover squad and eventually some of these shots they put up will find the back to the net. The Preds have also won four of the last five meetings against the Lightning. The Lightning should be favored here, but there's some value on the Predators and the plus money. I'll take a shot.
