Nashville vs Winnipeg: Predators Aim to Spoil Jets Home Opener

Predators look for points in four straight contests

Nashville heads out on the road for the first time this season as they aim to gather points in four straight games. The Predators opened their season with wins over Ottawa (3-2) and Dallas (4-1) before losing 3-2 to Calgary in a shootout. Defense is the name of the game for the Music City Crew as Nashville is allowing an average of just 22 shots per game and goaltender Pekka Rinne is sporting a 1.62 goals against average.

Jets play their season home opener looking to end mini losing skid

Winnipeg opened their season on the road with an impressive 6-2 win over the Coyotes in Arizona but a trip to California didn’t go as well. Playing Western Conference powerhouses, the Jets dropped a 3-0 decision to San Jose and then posted a 4-1 loss to the defending Stanley Cup Champion Los Angeles Kings. The Jets will be without their team leader as Evander Kane is expected to miss two weeks with a knee injury.

NHL Friday Night Prediction: Surfing over to the SportsInteraction sportsbook we see that Nashville is a road pup in this contest tonight. While puck lines don’t offer the same advantage as run lines in baseball, due to the possibility of an empty net goal, we do like taking them when they are given to the better team. We see the Predators defense being the difference here and we’ll wager 550 units on the Nashville puck line.
