Calle Jarnkrok has 15 points with 9 goals while Viktor Arvidsson has 14 points with 10 assists.

Nashville is 2-9 in their last 11 games against a team with a winning record and 7-19 in their last 26 games as an underdog while the under is 3-1-1 in their last 5 games overall. Florida is 4-1 in their last 5 games overall and 6-1 in their last 7 games as a favorite while the over is 5-1 in their last 6 games against a team with a losing record. Nashville is 2-5 in the last 7 meetings between these two teams.

I get why heavy plus money with the Predators is tempting, but realistically, this Nashville team is not good on the road. Florida continues to score and continues to score goals at a high clip while the Predators continue to have issues keeping the puck out of the net. It’s a tricky proposition, but I’ll have to lay the -1.5 puck line with the Panthers here.
