Dallas Stars vs Nashville Predators (By: FairPlayBet)
Nashville is my bet here. I expect to they give me money back that I lost in this series.
Namely, unlike Boston vs Toronto series where I had winning bets on both first two games, here between Nashville and Dallas I wasn't so lucky. Firstly my bet was under 5 but it settled as a push bet after Dallas stole 3:2 road win in Game 1. In second game I decided not to go with same choice although under was again written all over it. Instead I went for expected 1-1 scenario and took Nashville. But I wasn't too smart to take lower (around 1.60) but safe odds for ML. Instead I went for 2.00+ regulation odds and lost it cause Nashville won in Over Time, 2:1.
In any case, those two games proved me that Predators are way better team. I am very positive Nashville would get back home ice advantage in this series by winning at least one of the next two games in Dallas. If they fails tonight, then I am going again with Predators in Game 4.
Short Game 2 recap: shots, 42-23 Nashville, hits 23-17 Nashville, the Predators also were better in faceoff winning 3 of every 5.
The Predators also were better team in Game 1 which they lost. Shots on goal 32-29 in favor of Nashville, also more hits 24-14, face-offs 33-20. So, how come Dallas was close both times and even won one game? Well, Dallas had Ben Bishop between the pipes who was amazing. I said a lot about him already in preview for Game 1 and he was the main reason I took under back then. Also Stars' coach gave big credit to Bishop after the game and stated how it could be easily 4:0 in favor of Nashville already after first period if Bishop wasn't so great. Also after Game 2, new credits for Bishop from head coach in words that Dallas wouldn't even be in Over Time without his outstanding performance but would lose in regulation.
No matter of Bishop factor, IMO today Nashville is going to win. Do not forget they have excellent goaltenders too plus obviously Dallas offense is not too good. We can say Game 1 was exception. Dallas Stars are averaging only 2.55 per game (regular season).
