Both teams have been up and down this season according to hockey odds statistics and are right around the .500 mark. Since the teams don’t play in the same conference they don’t meet a great deal but there is some interesting hockey betting odds trends to consider in this game.
Hockey odds history shows that Tampa Bay is 6-2-2 in the last 10 games against Nashville. Remember that years ago there used to be ties in hockey but now teams go to shootouts following overtime. Nashville and Tampa Bay have played only once the past few seasons and that was last year as Tampa Bay won 2-1 at Nashville according to hockey odds results. They played once each year from 2003-2005 and the Lightning won two of the three as hockey odds information reads. At Tampa, the Lightning are 2-0-2 against the Predators according to hockey betting odds numbers.
Hockey odds totals bettors may want to know that last year’s game went under while the previous two had gone over the hockey betting odds. Goals could be at a premium in this game considering Tampa Bay ranks near the bottom of the NHL in offense stated in the hockey odds statistics. Nashville is in the top 10 in offense but struggles on defense shown by the hockey odds numbers. Since this game is at Tampa Bay it could be low scoring in terms of hockey betting odds. Nashville’s goaltender Dan Ellis has shown the ability to steal games on the road versus the hockey odds as he did earlier this month when he made 54 saves at San Jose, handing the Sharks their first loss of the season at home. Tampa Bay has started Mike Smith in goal for the most part according to hockey odds information although Olaf Kolzig has been getting some starts as the backup.
