Stephen Nover Free Monday Hockey Play

On February 19, 2018, in Free Picks, NHL, by Stephen

Predators minus 1 1/2 goals plus $1.30 (puck line) hosting Senators

I envision Nashville coach Peter Laviolette having his team fired up to stop a two-game home losing streak. So does the oddsmaker making the Predators a huge favorite. I’m not going to lay a price that high, but I will back Nashville on the puck line getting a price plus if they Predators should win by more than one goal – which I expect to happen.

The Senators enter this matchup fat and happy having won two in a row, including defeating the Rangers, 6-3, at home on Saturday.

Now the Senators take to the road where they have lost the past three times all by three goals.

Ottawa ranks 26th in scoring and gives up the third-most goals. The Senators are extremely weak on special teams team. Nashville ranks among the bottom-four in power play goals and penalty killing. Their poor special teams are just the antidote for the Predators to break out of their mini losing streak.

(Editor’s note: Stephen is 8-4 on his last 12 NHL plays as he goes for his third straight winning NHL season. Please email him if you’re interested in his sports service.)
