Why bet on the Nashville PredatorsThe Predators have now played 3 home games in this postseason, and have yet to drop one. They won both games at home in the opening round versus Chicago, and they took Game 3 of this series to jump out to a 2-1 lead. Perhaps what should be the most alarming for the Blues is that Nashville have only conceded 4 goals in the 3 games that they have played on home ice in this postseason. The Predators have been fantastic in their own end during the playoffs, but they have been particularly tough to break down in their own building. If they can get another win to snatch a 3-1 series lead, it’s tough to imagine that they would then go on to lose 3-straight.
Why bet on the St. Louis BluesWhen you combine the playoffs with regular season meetings, the St. Louis Blues have now lost 4 straight games in Nashville. This is a streak that they really need to break on Tuesday night, as extending that losing run to 5 would likely mean that they would not be long for these playoffs. St. Louis are going to need to play a whole lot better than they did in Game 3 if they are to get back into this series. You are just not going to have much success if you can only generate 23 shots, especially when going against a goaltender who has been at the top of his game during the postseason.
