The Predators are 2-8 in their last 10 road games and 2-5 in their last 7 overall. The Red Wings are 1-5 in their last 6 home games and 15-56 in their last 71 overall. The under is 7-1 in Red Wings last 8 home games. The Predators are 17-35-2 in the last 54 meetings in Detroit and 3-11 in the last 14 meetings.

Both of these teams are on the struggle bus, but it's safer to assume the Nashville Predators are going to tun things around sooner. The Detroit Red Wings look a lot like the team from a year ago, and that's a club that can't score consistently and playing on the power play doesn't make much of a difference. The Predators are a better team here and should take advantage of this game to kind of stop the bleeding.
