Canucks Predators Betting Tips – Nashville Needs to Start Winning

Vancouver Canucks @ Nashville Predators – Friday February 22, 2013 8:00PM EST

The online sports books have been waiting for the rise of the Nashville Predators for years now. Ever since Pekka Rinne came into his own as an elite NHL goaltender, the Preds have tried to put a winning team around Rinne. But every time it seems like Nashville gets a team together it likes, that team falls apart in free agency every summer. It happened again during this offseason and the Predators is left with only a skeleton of the team that it really wants. If Nashville is going to start making a move towards the playoffs, it needs to make that move now.

Betting on the Vancouver Canucks to be a good regular season team is like betting that the sun will rise in the morning. But the Canucks find itself haunted by the same demons that have ruined its playoff runs in the past few years. As Vancouver tried to transition from goaltender Roberto Luongo to Cory Schneider, the team found that Schneider is not quite up to the task. Luongo, however, in undefeated in regulation this season with a 4-0-3 record while Schneider has a 4-3-0 record. Luongo is also the goalie known for choking in the playoffs and that is not what Vancouver fans want to see in goal during critical games. But Vancouver may have no choice when it comes to leaving Luongo in net when the playoffs start approaching.

Why the Predators Will Win

If you look at the stats for this season, you will see that these two teams are pretty evenly matched. What the sports betting experts think will put the Predators over the top in this game is the physical way in which Nashville plays the game. With Pekka Rinne in the nets and the Nashville forwards pounding the Vancouver offensive stars, this could be a very long night for the Vancouver Canucks.

Why the Canucks Will Win

Vancouver is still trying to find that balance between toughness and finesse that will make it a Stanley Cup champion. In the meantime, there is the issue of the recurring goaltending issue that Vancouver will also have to deal with. These are not necessarily bad problems for Vancouver to have to deal with, but both the goaltending and lack of toughness have prevented the Canucks from winning the Stanley Cup to this point. In this game, Vancouver needs to find that balance between finesse and physicality if it wants to win.

The Bottom Line

The Nashville Predators know that its window of opportunity is closing quickly. That is why there is such an urgency with the Predators in every game it plays. The Canucks feels like it is playing on borrowed time this season as it still struggles to solve its personnel issues. This will be one of those games where the Canucks find out just how much more physical presence the team will need to win in the playoffs.

Pick: Nashville Predators
