Why Under 6.5 Looks the Best Betting Option

There is -115 available for Under 6.5 goals and that makes plenty of appeal. Our prediction is that Lightning and Predators will struggle to light the lamp.

Lightning Are 8 From 10 on the H2H

Tampa Bay Lightning have suffered three consecutive road losses. In their previous game, they enjoyed a 3-1 home triumph against Pittsburgh Penguins at Amalie Arena. Nikita Kucherov, Anthony Cirelli and Tanner Jeannot scored one goal apiece. Goalie Andrei Vasilevski had 24 saves (0.96).

Nashville Predators have triumphed in back-to-back games. The latest of these was on the road where Chicago Blackhawks were beaten 4-3 (AP) at United Center. Ryan O'Reilly, Luke Evangelista and Mark Jankowski scored one goal each.

Lightning had the edge in the most recent encounter between these teams. At Amalie Arena, they recorded a 5-3 win over Predators. Lightning have five straight wins against Predators. They’ve also claimed 8 victories in the past 10 head-to-head meetings.
