One of the lesser-hyped games on tonight’s NHL slate is the Senators vs Predators. Neither of these teams carry much relevance at this point of the season. Even though the Predators have almost locked up a playoff spot, they will have a tough draw against virtually everyone, and are not favored to leave the first round. The Senators have won some unlikely games already this season, and have a chance to make prey out of the mediocre team from Nashville.
Let’s take a look at the NHL betting odds, trends and picks for the game and give our Senators vs Predators prediction.
Senators vs Predators NHL Betting Preview and Prediction
NHL Regular Season
Ottawa Senators (23-36-6, 11-17-3 Away) vs. Nashville Predators (38-24-4, 20-11-0 Home)
Date: Tuesday, March 29, 2022
Time: 8:00 p.m. EST
Venue: Bridgestone Arena – Nashville, TN
On paper, it might seem like taking Nashville in the Senators vs Predators game tonight wouldn’t be the worst thing. Saros has won four of his last six starts and the Predators are 20-11 on home ice. While they are favored for a reason and very well could win this game, there is just no value in a bet on the home team tonight. There should be no consideration of the money line at -225. The Predators have not given bettors a single reason to put that kind of faith in them.
