With just one game on the docket for tonight, the Nashville Predators take on the Ottawa Senators. This will be the first of two meetings between these clubs this season. Historically, the Predators haven’t had troubles with the Senators, winning four of their last five head-to-head meetings. Both these teams have around a .500 win percentage over their last ten games.
The confirmed goaltending match-up for tonight’s game is Juuse Saros (19-18-1) against Mads Sogaard (1-1-0).

Nashville Predators team total over 3.5 (+115)

Your $10 bet would return $21.50.
The Nashville Predators have been in a little bit of a scoring drought as of late, failing to cover this over in seven straight, but before that, they had 4+ goals for in two of their previous three games. On the season, they’re averaging 3.06 goals per game. It’s really the match-up that we’re targeting today.
The Ottawa Senators are starting Mads Sogaard tonight, making his third start on the season. Sogaard has a 4.55 goals-against average (GAA) with a .841 save percentage (S%) this season. The Senators allow the fourth most goals against this season, averaging 3.6 per game. 

Juuse Saros over 28.5 saves (-134)

Your $10 bet would return $17.50.
Juuse Saros has had a down season to his standard, recording a 2.91 GAA and a .904 S% — the highest GAA and lowest S% of his entire career. But his line is too low for tonight’s match-up against the Senators. 
The Predators netminder has covered this line in 47% of his road games this season, averaging 27.7 saves per game. Against the Senators, he has covered this line in three of his last four games, averaging 32.8 saves per game. Ottawa ranks third in the NHL in shots for per game in the last 10 days, averaging 34.8 per game.
