Nashville is 12-4 in their last 16 games overall and 21-8 in their last 29 games as a favorite while the over is 2-0-2 in their last 4 games against a team with a losing record. Chicago is 3-7 in their last 10 games against a team with a winning record and 1-4 in their last 5 games overall while the under is 5-1 in their last 6 home games. The under is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings between these two teams.

I get the case that could be made on both sides but I think that whichever way you slice it, I think we have a lower scoring game here. The Blackhawks haven’t been scoring a ton as of late and the Predators tend to hang around 3 goals more often than not lately. I think once again you have a 3-2 or 3-1 game at most, so give me the under here.
