Cappers Analysis:

Scott Rickenbach: 1st of 3 in NHL 3-pack

The Predators are the better team in this match-up but sometimes crazy things happen. Nashville had about a dozen shots on goal before Arizona even got their first shot in Game 3 but none of the Preds shots found the back of the net while the Coyotes very first did. Then Nashville had apparently taken the lead in the third period of Game 3 only to have the goal over-turned. A deflating turn of events and, as a result, you're going to see a determined Predators team ready to take over in this game and force a winner takes all game 5. I respect the Coyotes but there is no doubt in my mind that the Preds are the better team and, of course, they're bringing their A game for this one.


This has been a back-and-forth series, with Arizona up 2-games-to-1 going into this afternoon's tilt.  We'll take the Predators as they're 146-92 (+54 games on the moneyline) when playing with revenge from a defeat in which they didn't score 2+ goals.  Nashville's also 47-28 (+10 games on the moneyline) its last 75 when playing with revenge from a loss earlier in the season.  Meanwhile, Arizona's a wallet-busting 43-60 (minus 17 games on the moneyline) off a win.

Forum Legends: Friday Aug 7: Predators @ Coyotes

The Predators severely outplayed the Coyotes last game, especially in the first period, but ended up losing 4-1. It's the second of three games the Predators had a significant advantage. The other game was a coin flip that the Coyotes won.

This is a pretty big motivator for the Predators. They're down 2-1 in the series, facing elimination, and they know they're the better team and they've been playing better. Just getting unlucky. So they should play a very similar game as the last 3, just with more intensity.

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
We are constantly evaluating online sportsbooks and line feeds to ensure accuracy with our Expert picks. We typically have between 5-10 legal and reputable sportsbooks for our handicappers to select lines from.
