Montreal Is Our Road NHL Betting Pick vs Predators
At this stage of the NHL season, the teams atop the standing are all but assured of a postseason spot, but there is more to the regular season than just getting into the playoffs. There is still the business of winning the division to take care of, and there are some great NHL betting races taking place in both conferences. Two teams, the Montreal Canadiens and Nashville Predators, who are looking to win their respective divisions, meet on Tuesday night.
Date: Tuesday, March 24, 2015
Venue: Bridgestone Arena
Opening Line: Nashville -1.5
NHL Betting Analysis and Game Prediction
Montreal are in a dogfight with the Tampa Bay Lightning in the Atlantic Division, with the Habs currently holding a 2 point lead with 9 games to go. Montreal has recovered nicely from a pretty rough stretch, and have now strung together three straight wins, with 2 of those coming on home ice. They are now going to have to go on the road for a pair of games, with both of those match-ups coming against teams who are very much in the playoff picture. They will be looking for goalie Carey Price to continue his hot hand after posting back to back shutouts versus the Hurricanes and Sharks. Price has very much been one of the keys to the success of the Canadiens this season, as he holds the lead in most of the major goaltender stats. He is looking like a shoe in for the Vezina Trophy when the awards are handed out at the end of the season.
