Nashville Predators vs. Detroit Red Wings Online NHL Betting Preview
Posted by: Mike Davis
This online NHL betting evening, sportsbook players can wager on the Nashville Predators vs. Detroit Red Wings matchup. The Red Wings are doing all they can to make up for last year’s horrendous season by making this year’s postseason. On the other hand, the Preds are currently trying to maintain a grip at the top of the Central Division. Let’s take a look at what kind of turnout parlay payout odds are predicting for this evening’s matchup.
Nashville Predators vs. Detroit Red Wings – Tuesday, February 20th
When: 7:30 pm ET
Where: Little Caesars Arena, Detroit, Michigan
TV: Local Broadcasts
Stream: NHL TV
Online NHL Betting Odds:
Nashville Predators +1 ½ (-220) 5 ½ (-110) +145
Detroit Red Wings -1 ½ (+180) 5 ½ (-110) -165
The Preds leap into this evening’s matchup flashing a 35-14-9 record that ranks them 1st in the Central Division. However, Nashville’s 79-points on the season currently ties them alongside the Winnipeg Jets for the lead in the division. With that in mind, it’s clear that Nashville needs to pull off a road win this evening. Surprisingly enough, the online NHL betting odds are siding against the Preds this evening. This is unexpected because the Preds have been having a much more successful season than Detroit. Granted, the Red Wings did pull one over the Predators a few nights back, 3-1. But that was the first time this season these two have crossed paths this season. Now that the Preds have gotten a better look at the Red Wings, things might be a little different.
Overall, it’s pretty easy to tell who has the statistical advantage in this evening’s Nashville Predators vs. Detroit Red Wings matchup. With the 10th best scoring unit in the league, the Preds are a hard team to stop. The same doesn’t apply to the Red Wings however, since Detroit ranks 27th in goals scored per game. Defensively it’s very much a similar story; the Red Wings rank 21 in goals allowed while the Preds are 3rd in the same category.
Detroit Red Wings
The Detroit Red Wings fly into this Tuesday night pairing sporting a 24-25-9 record that pegs them as the 5th best team in the Atlantic. Despite being only 2-spots away from the coveted No. 3 seed in the division, it’s extremely unlikely that the Red Wings will crack the playoff cut this season. The reason being, their meager 57-points on the season which places them 20-points shy of tying with the 3rd-seeded Toronto Maple Leafs. All in all, the Red Wings are 1-2 in their last 3 matchups, with their sole victory coming against the Predators.
Since Detroit beat out Nashville a few nights ago, should sportsbook players take the Red Wings to get it done once again? As the saying goes, lightning doesn’t strike twice and it seems extremely unlikely that the Red Wings can get it done once again this evening. In addition, the odds available on the Preds straight up at the moment are way too lucrative to turn down.
