Carolina Hurricanes vs. Nashville Predators: another equal fight?
Carolina vs. Nashville: NHL match prediction (March 12, 2021)
On March 12, "Carolina" will face "Nashville" at home for the second time in a row and will try to prove their superiority again. Will the "Hurricanes" manage to do this? You will find out about this in our prediction.
"Carolina Hurricanes" are ranked second in the Central Division and have currently gained 35 points. The team developed a streak to six wins, but at the same time won victories in three fights in overtime. After confident victories over "Detroit" (5:2) and "Florida" (4:2) on their ice, the "Hurricanes" could barely beat "Nashville" with a score of 3:2 in overtime.
Note that in the course of the meeting Rod Brind’Amour's wards were inferior to the "Predators" 0:2, but they made great use of their chances playing in the majority and equalized the situation. And in extra time in the final minute, Jordan Staal scored the decisive goal. By the way, "Carolina" looked much more interesting in the attack.
Upcoming Predictions for Hockey
"Nashville Predators" are in the sixth position of the standings and are already far behind the same "Chicago". The thing is that quite often this season the team has been losing in several matches in a row. Recently, the "Predators" lost three consecutive games on their own ice and managed to rehabilitate only in the confrontation with "Dallas" (4:3).
Note that John Hynes' squad is considered one of the most ineffective and at the same time the most conceding teams of the division. On the road, the team could achieve success in regulation time only twice in 12 meetings held. Roman Josi and Filip Forsberg often have to take the game over, and they have already scored 16 and 27 points respectively.
- "Nashville" has lost four previous matches against "Carolina".
- "Carolina" won six matches in a row.
- The "Predators" have lost four out of five meetings.
We think that "Carolina" will work on the mistakes and look more confident in the upcoming match. The "Predators" are one of the worst teams in the division in many aspects and have lost three times to the "Hurricanes" this season. According to this, we propose to bet on the hosts again.
Our prediction is the victory of "Carolina" for 1.76 odds on 1xbet.
