The Nashville Predators will try to be nasty hosts on Tuesday when the Las Vegas Golden Knights pay a visit to Bridgestone Arena.

The Nashville Predators are 25-11-6 so far on the season. The Las Vegas Golden Knights, meanwhile, are 29-10-3. OVER/UNDER betting fans have seen Nashville go 21-21 and the Golden Knights go 23-17-2 on the totals.

The game also pits Nashville’s No. 9-ranked offense, averaging 3.12 goals per game, against a Golden Knights defense that ranks No. 10 at 2.76 goals allowed. The Predators power play is averaging 24.2% while the Golden Knights defense kills off 81.75% of their penalties.

In their last action, Las Vegas was a 3-2 loser at home against the Oilers. Bettors on Edmonton at +165 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (5) sent UNDER bettors home happy as well.

Last time out for Nashville, they were a 2-1 winner as they battled the Oilers at home. Moneyline bettors who got the Predators at -157 were rewarded, while the 3 combined goals moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.
