The Blackhawks are 0-4 in their last 4 road games and 3-7 in their last 10 overall. The Predators are 4-0 in their last 4 games as a favorite and 6-1 in their last 7 overall. The under is 6-1-1 in Blackhawks last 8 overall. The under is 2-0-2 in Predators last 4 overall. The Blackhawks are 1-5 in the last 6 meetings in Nashville and 0-4 in the last 4 meetings.

The Chicago Blackhawks provided value in the underdog role earlier in the season, but now they're looking more and more like the team we expected to see, and they've cashed little tickets in the road underdog role. The Nashville Predators have been one of the hotter teams in the league over the last two weeks and they've been dominant in the home favorite role. The Predators have won all four meetings this season against the Blackhawks. You can argue this line should be steeper than what it is. Give me the Predators and the reasonable juice.
