Predators vs. Kings Prediction

I’m on Nashville here. I get the case to be made for the Kings at home over the course of this win streak, but the bulk of those wins came on the road, where Los Angeles has done their best work this season, and the lone home win came against the lowly Blue Jackets. Nashville’s a team that plays their best hockey on the road and have gotten off to quite the start of their own on this road trip. I’ll side with the Preds and the plus money here.

Chris’s Pick Nashville +155
