The Dallas Stars and Nashville Predators face off on Saturday in an NHL showdown at Bridgestone Arena. Let’s look at the betting matchup and give a free Stars vs Predators prediction.

Predators Look to Build on Last Game

The Predators have been inconsistent this season but they are going to look to build on the last game. The Predators faced off against the Flyers and they scored four goals and the defense gave up only two goals. Two games ago against the Canucks gave up five goals and that defense can’t show up again here. The Predators are averaging 3.15 goals while their defense is giving up 3.06 goals per game. Filip Forsberg has scored 16 goals and added 22 assists so far this season. 

Stars Look for Third Straight Win

The Stars have won two straight games and they are going to look for a third straight win here. In the last game against the Vancouver Canucks they scored four goals and that was enough for the overtime victory. Matt Duchene has scored one goals and one assist. The Stars are averaging 3.52 goals while their defense is giving up 3.13 goals per game. The offense is ranked 4th in the league while the defense is ranked 16th. Joe Pavelski has scored 13 goals and added 17 assists. The Stars are 4th in the West with 42 points, the same as the Colorado Avalanche.

Stars vs Predators Betting Prediction

Nashville is going to really struggle in this game. The Stars are averaging 3.51 goals and they are going to have no issue running up the score in this game. The Predators defense has been inconsistent and they are going to really struggle to slow down the Stars offense here. Nashville also is going to struggle to get the offense going against the Stars defense. Back the Stars on the money line.
