Since a 9-2 loss to Dallas, Nashville has scored at least four goals in each of the matchups during the seven-game winning streak. Colorado has back-to-back five-goal games. That is something to consider for NHL over/under predictions.

Each of the last two games between Nashville and Colorado have gone over the total while six of the last seven times that Nashville played host to the Avalanche, the game had at least seven goals scored. Don’t be surprised to see that trend continue.


Avalanche vs Predators ATS Pick: Predators +1½ (-210)

A month ago, this game might be looked at a little differently. Nashville has picked up five points on the Avalanche during its winning streak with the Predators putting up 4.6 goals per game over those six games.

Something will have to give considering that Colorado has won its last nine games against Western Conference teams with Nashville riding a six-game winning streak versus teams from the Western Conference.

Valeri Nichushkin could be getting closer to returning for the Avalanche and that could be just what Colorado needs to make a push towards the top of the Central Division standings.

Artturi Lehkonen has six goals in his last eight games and it has been nearly a month since he has gone back-to-back games without a point so he is a solid bet at +200 to score a goal when it comes to the NHL hockey bets today.
