#13/14 ASA NHL TOP PLAY ON 10* Over 6 Goals - Buffalo Sabres at Nashville Predators, Thursday at 8:00 PM ET – The set-up here is ideal to expect plenty of goals. The Predators are off a 5-4 OT win over Colorado. That was a big win for Nashville and they have a tough match-up at Boston on deck. That makes this a tricky spot as the Preds take on the lowly Sabres and potentially overlook them which is going to lead to some goal-scoring for Buffalo in this one. The issue for the Sabres though is that they can not stop opponents and they are dealing with a cluster of issues at the goalie position! Luukkonen and Subban have injuries and Tokarski has been out due to covid. Buffalo will turn to Aaron Dell in goal tonight. Dell has received plenty of goal-scoring support in his starts with Buffalo scoring at least 4 goals in 3 of the 4. The problem is that the Sabres have surrendered an average of 5.5 goals in his 4 starts! Now Dell and the Sabres are visiting a Nashville club that has scored an average of 4.20 goals in winning 5 straight games! In fact, over the last 14 games (12-2 stretch for Predators) it has been a scoring average of just under 4 goals per game! The Predators have allowed just under 3 goals per game last 7 games and we fully expect a 5 to 3 type game here. As you can see per all of the above, plenty of reasons to expect solid goal-scoring from both clubs in this one! Take the OVER here
