Hockey betting odds handicappers are hesitant to go against the pesky Predators as they have a suffocating defense and world class goaltender that make them a NHL gambling threat any time they take the ice.
The Nashville Predators will host the Vancouver Canucks in game 4 of their Western Conference semifinal series with a starting time of 8:30 PM ET and a telecast on Versus.

There is no question that Vancouver is the better and deeper team with far more versatility and weaponry than Nashville. The Predators are a great defensive team however and never stop working. The question is if the drones can steal the series from the stars.
This game will be the biggest ever in the history of the Nashville franchise. Just a couple of years ago the Predators were looking like a team that would leave Nashville but their recent success in the NHL playoffs has proven that any city will go nuts over a Stanley Cup Playoff run.
The Predators style of play is perfect for a deep run in the post season as they are used to grinding out games in the regular season with a tight checking defense and opportunistic offense. While other teams have to adjust their style of play for post season Nashville makes no changes as they play the same way all year.
While Roberto Longo had a respectable 2.29 goals against average in the playoffs he came up empty in the clutch too often and has looked shaky when it has counted most. Nashville’s Pekka Rinne on the other hand looks to have the NHL betting form of playoff MVP.
Heading into this playoff series Vancouver had lost 3 of their previous 5 games against Nashville with the hockey betting odds as this head to head series went under the total in 8 of the last 9 matchups. The Canucks got the money in 6 of their last 8 games at Music City with 4 of the last 6 games in that span going under the total.
