Nashville vs. Los Angeles,
03/14/2019 22:30 EDT,
Score: 3 - 1
Money Line: -185 Nashville
The set-up: I think the visitors could/should in fact be much larger favs here. The Predators come in off a 3-2 loss to the suddenly surging Ducks, while LA posted a 3-2 road win over Anaheim. If recent history is any precedence, then the Preds have to be loving their chances today as they’ve already taken both meetings with the Kings this season. Nashville averages 2.9 goals and it allows 2.7. Predators’ goaltender Pekka Rinne has a 2.54 GAA to this point. LA is just 13-17-2 at home this year. The Kings average 2.3 goals and the allow 3.2. Goalie Jon Quick has a terrible 3.28 GAA this season.
The pick: Take it for what you will as well, but LA is just 1-6 in its last seven at home, while the Predators are 4-1 in their last five when playing on one days rest. I think Rinne out duels Quick. Lay the price.
