Nashville Predators 2021 schedule

In a typical NHL season, teams play 82 games each. Forty-one games are played at home and 41 games are on the road.

The NHL currently has 32 teams as the Seattle Kraken joined the league in the summer of 2021.

In the current alignment, each team plays either four or five games against the teams in their division. They play three games against each team that is in their conference, but not their division.

They play two games against teams in the other conference. Each NHL team plays at least one game in every arena across the league every season.

How to read Predators betting lines

  • Nashville Predators         -1.5 (-110)      +155      O5.5 (-110)
  • Dallas Stars                     +1.5 (-110)      -175       U5.5 (-110)

There are three main markets to bet on in hockey.

  • Spread: The spread bet in hockey is often referred to as the puck line. If you bet a team at -1.5, you are betting on the favorite to win the game by at least two goals. If you bet +1.5, you are betting on the underdog to either win the game or lose by only one goal. Hockey games are low-scoring and have a lot of variances, so you will rarely if ever, see a spread larger than 1.5. Most times, betting the favorite to cover the -1.5 line will be a plus-money underdog.
  • Moneyline: When you bet on the moneyline, you are betting on the team you think will win the game. There is no spread to cover. In the above example, the Stars are substantial favorites. You would need to risk $175 to potentially return a profit of $100 if Dallas wins. On the other hand, you can bet $100 on the underdog Predators. If Nashville wins the game, you’d get your $100 bet back plus a profit of $145. Any hockey favorite larger than -200 would be considered a huge favorite.
  • Totals: Betting on the total means picking whether you think the game will have more or fewer goals than the listed number. In hockey, the total is usually 5.5 goals. Sometimes, you’ll see a total as low as 4.5 for two defensive teams and a total as high as 6.5 for two offensive juggernauts. Overtime goals are included unless specified otherwise. If the game goes to a shootout, the winning team will be awarded a goal. For example, if the above game went to a shootout tied at 3 and Nashville won the shootout, the Predators would win by a listed final score of 4-3. Individual shootout goals do not count towards the total.

How to bet on player props

Prop betting has become a favorite for sports bettors across the world. Sometimes you’re not sure if a team will win the game, but you’re certain that something else will happen in the game. This is where the prop betting market comes in. A prop is any bet that doesn’t relate to the moneyline or total.

Here are some popular hockey props:

  • Opening faceoff: If you need immediate action, or if you’ve ever felt the desire to bet on a coin flip, this is pretty close. You’ll know whether you won your bet in the first second of the game. There’s not much skill to handicapping this, but it’s fun. Usually, both sides are -110 and there isn’t a favorite.
  • Period bets: Bet on which team will be ahead after the first period, or which team will win the third period. You can also bet totals for periods. If you expect a slow start, you can bet under 1.5 goals in the first period. In 33 road games for Nashville, 21 first periods went over 1.5 goals. A $100 bet would have won a profit of over $1000 by taking the first period over in Predators road games.
  • First to score: You can bet on which player you feel will score the first goal of the game. Even the league’s most talented goalscorers come in at over 5-1 odds in this market. If you pick a lesser-known player or a defenseman to break the ice, you can get odds in the 30-1 range. Not bad!
