Maple Leafs Continue to be in One Goal Games

The Maple Leafs continue to be one goal games and each of the last games have ended that way.

The Maple Leafs on the season is averaging 3.31 goals while their defense is giving up 3.30 goals per game.

Predators Look for Fourth Straight Win

The Predators have won three games in a row and in the last game against the Tampa Bay Lightning, they were dominate. The offense scored five goals and that was enough for the four goal victory. Roman Josi scored a goal and added an assist. Nashville on the season is averaging 3.23 goals while their defense is giving up 3.13 goals per game. The offense is ranked 10th and they are going to need the offense to run up the score here. Filip Forsberg has scored 14 goals and added 16 assists. 

Predators vs Maple Betting Prediction. 

The Predators offense has sure looked impressive heading into this game and they are going to find success again here. The Maple Leafs defense is giving up 3.30 gaols per game and they are going to really struggle again in this game. The Maple Leafs will probably keep this game within a goal again, but there is a ton of value here with the Maple Leafs. Back the Maple Leafs against the spread.
