Boston vs Nashville: prediction for the NHL game
Boston have been excellent of late. They mounted a five-game winning streak and recorded the last two victories at home. The Bruins crushed Montreal (5:1) and prevailed over Philadelphia (3:2).
The Bruins had problems at the start of the season, but now they deliver solid performance even against the strongest teams in the league. If Boston continue to chalk up points, they can soon climb into the top-5.
Nashville are the leaders in the West. The Predators are in great form, but after five consecutive victories, they unexpectedly lost to Buffalo (1:4) away. Nashville scored their only goal during power play.
Perhaps, the Predators were simply burned out after a tough victory over Colorado the day before. On average, John Hynes' score three goals per game, and they have been delivering high performance in recent games.
Nashville average 3 goals per game.
In 3 out of 4 games of Nashville, more than one goal was scored in the first period
We are predicting a close game. Both sides are in good form, despite unconvincing performance in their previous fixtures. However, we think that Nashville will edge a victory here. The visitors have been more consistent this season.
Our prediction - Asian handicap (0) to Nashville
Both the Preds and the Bruins have been scoring a lot lately, so we believe that together they will easily overcome the total of 5.5 goals.
Second bet - total over 5.5 goals
