Chicago Blackhawks vs Nashville Predators 3/16/2023 Picks, Odds and Analysis

The Chicago Blackhawks and Nashville Predators are poised for a highly anticipated showdown, with both teams striving to overcome their respective struggles this season. Currently sitting near the bottom of the Western Conference with a lackluster 23-38-6 record, the Blackhawks are aiming to carry forward the momentum gained from their impressive 6-3 triumph over the Bruins. 

However, the Blackhawks’ offense has been a major source of concern this season, as they are averaging a mere 2.52 goals per game. Although Taylor Raddysh, Andreas Athanasiou, and Philipp Kurashev have shouldered much of the scoring burden with a combined 43 goals and 41 assists, the rest of the team’s offensive unit has struggled to contribute. With just three active skaters having tallied more than 10 goals this season, opposing teams can effectively neutralize the Blackhawks’ attack by focusing on limiting their key offensive threats.

  • Chicago is 0-6 SU in their last 6 meetings on the road against Nashville.
  • The total went OVER in 13 of Chicago’s last 20 games played in March.
  • The total stayed UNDER in 6 of Chicago’s last 8 games played on a Thursday.

In the meantime, the Nashville Predators, with a 34-24-7 record and sitting near the bottom of the Central Division, have revived their playoff aspirations by securing three consecutive wins, putting them back in the mix for a wild-card spot in the Western Conference. As the two teams gear up for their upcoming clash, both are keen on climbing up the rankings in the Central Division.

Despite their recent success, the Predators are also facing their fair share of challenges this season, with their offensive output falling short of expectations, averaging a modest 2.83 goals per game. While the likes of Matt Duchene and Roman Josi have been noteworthy contributors, combining for 36 goals and 73 assists, the rest of the offensive unit has struggled to generate consistent scoring opportunities. With only six active skaters having scored double-digit goals this season, opponents can effectively neutralize the Predators’ attack.

  • Nashville is 6-0 SU in their last 6 games at home against Chicago.
  • The total went OVER in 6 of Nashville’s last 9 games against an opponent in the West.
  • The total has gone OVER in 9 of Nashville’s last 13 games played on a Thursday.

Chicago Blackhawks vs Nashville Predators. The NHL pick for this game is the Nashville Predators. As the Blackhawks and the Predators gear up to face each other, Chicago is riding high on their recent win and is looking to continue their momentum. Taylor Raddysh, Philipp Kurashev, and the rest of the forward unit will lead the offense. The Blackhawks will also look to limit the Predators’ offensive output, as they have been averaging only 2.83 goals per game this season. Connor Murphy, Seth Jones, and the rest of the Blackhawks’ defensive corps will shut down the Predators’ offense by forcing turnovers and limiting shots on goal; goaltender Alex Stalock stands tall between the pipes. Despite the Predators’ recent winning streak, the Blackhawks are poised to pull off an upset in this matchup. Prediction: Chicago Blackhawks win 3-2.
