Columbus will hold an NHL match against Nashville on May 6. Our experts have prepared a prediction for this confrontation, which can be found below.

Columbus Blue Jackets

The Columbus Blue Jackets were finally able to end their losing streak, which reached nine matches, beating Detroit (1:0). Further, the team was unable to consolidate the result, again losing to Carolina (1:2 OT). Back at home, the Blue Jackets faced Nashville, again losing points (3:4 OT). The defense could not resist the opponent's pressure, which is why the Predators created too many dangerous chances.

The long slump at the end of the season put an end to the performance of the Jackets in the Gagarin Cup. Now the team is in the last position in the Central Division standings with 44 points.

Nashville Predators

The Nashville Predators continue to consistently earn points. In five games the team failed only with Florida (4:7). The defense of the Predators turned out to be far from the most reliable, as it allowed the opponent to make as many as 55 shots on target. Then the Predators barely prevailed over Dallas (1:0 OT).

On the road, the Predators had to face Columbus, winning 4:3 in overtime. It is worth praising the defender Roman Josi, who made an assist, as well as scored a double. Nashville are the main contender for the playoffs from the fourth position in the standings.

Statistics

  • In two out of three head-to-head matches, the teams failed to score in each period.
  • In four out of six head-to-head matches, Columbus opened the scoring.

Our Prediction

Nashville are pretty strongly motivated for this match, as the team needs to earn points in order not to let Dallas get around them. Columbus, in turn, are just finishing the season and taking into account their weak form, it is worth giving preference to the Predators.

Our prediction is a Nashville Predators handicap (-1.5) for 2.50 odds from 1XBET.
