The Nashville Predators and the Detroit Red Wings meet in NHL action from the Little Caesars Arena on Tuesday night.

The Nashville Predators will look to build on a 3-0 win over Chicago last ime out. Filip Forsberg leads the Preds in scoring with 29 points including team-highs of 11 goals and 18 assists while Roman Josi also has 18 assists and Calle Jarnkrok also has 11 goals this season. Eell Toivanen also has 10 goals and 9 assists for Nashville on the year. as a team, Nashville is averaging 2.4 goals on 30.3 shots with a 20.4% success rate on the PP while allowing 3 goals on 30.9 shots per game against with a 72.1% success rate on the PK this season.

The Detroit Red Wings will look to build on a 5-1 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning in their last matchup. Filip Hronek leads the Red Wings in scoring with 22 points including a team-high 20 assists while Anthony Mantha has 20 points with a team-high 10 goals and 10 assists and Dylan Larkin’s also got 20 points with 13 assists. Robby Fabbri also has 10 goals for Detroit this season. As a team, Detroit is averaging 2.1 goals on 27.8 shots against with an 11.6% success rate on the PK this season while allowing 3.2 goals on 31.1 shots with a 74.1% success rate on the PK this season.

Nashville is 7-1 in their last 8 games overall and 5-1 in their last 6 road games while the under is 3-0-2 in their last 5 games overall. Detroit is 4-1 in their last 5 home games and 8-20 in their last 28 games following a win while the under is 4-0-1 in their last 5 games following a win. Nashville is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings between these two teams.

The plus money with a home dog like Detroit’s worth a look on the surface, but realistically it’s still Detroit we’re talking about here and the Red Wings don’t really string wins together consistently enough to get me to take a considerable shot on them here. I knocked Nashville and their road from earlier in the year, but the Preds are playing some solid hockey right now and this is a reasonable price on the road all things considered. I’ll lay it and play it with Nashville in this spot.
