The Detroit Red Wings and Nashville Predators meet Thursday in NHL action at the Bridgestone Arena.
The Detroit Red Wings need a win here after losing seven of their last 10 games. The Detroit Red Wings are averaging 2.2 goals per game and are scoring on 11.8 percent of their power play opportunities. Robby Fabbri leads Detroit with nine goals, Filip Hronek has 17 assists and Dylan Larkin has 93 shots on goal. Defensively, the Detroit Red Wings are allowing 3.3 goals per game and are killing 71.7 percent of their opponents power plays. Thomas Greiss has given up 55 goals on 496 shots faced and Jonathan Bernier has allowed 43 goals on 523 shots.
The Nashville Predators look for a win here after splitting their last 10 games. The Nashville Predators are averaging 2.3 goals per game and are scoring on 19.6 percent of their power play opportunities. Filip Forsberg leads Nashville with 11 goals, Roman Josi has 15 assists and Viktor Arvidsson has 108 shots on goal. Defensively, the Nashville Predators are allowing 3.2 goals per game and are killing 71 percent of their opponents power plays. Juuse Saros has allowed 36 goals on 443 shots faced and Pekka Rinne has allowed 58 goals on 572 shots.
The Red Wings are 9-42 in their last 51 road games and 20-64 in their last 84 overall. The Predators are 2-7 in their last 9 games playing on 1 days rest and 4-1 in their last 5 overall. The under is 3-0-2 in Red Wings last 5 overall. The under is 4-1 in Predators last 5 overall. The Red Wings are 7-2 in the last 9 meetings in Nashville and 12-5 in the last 17 meetings.
The Detroit Red Wings continue to have issues finding the back of the net, they're one of the last profitable teams in the sport right now and they've had zero success on the road dating back to last season. The Nashville Predators have had consistency issues, but they're coming off a strong week and they've won three of the five meetings against the Red Wings this season, which includes a 2-0 shutout victory on Tuesday. I have no choice but to side with the Predators and the PL for max betting value here.
