The Nashville Predators (25-21-1) play the middle game of a three-game set with the Chicago Blackhawks (21-20-5) Wednesday with a 7 p.m. ET puck drop at United Center. Below, we analyze the Predators-Blackhawks odds and lines, with NHL picks and predictions.

The Predators won 5-2 in a battle between these rivals in the Music City Monday behind G Juuse Saros. Nashville has won each of the first six meetings in this season series while outscoring Chicago 19-8.

The Blackhawks have alternated wins and losses across their past four outings. They’re back on home ice, which normally would be good, but they’re just 2-4 over their previous six skates on United Center ice.

Against the spread (ATS)

As mentioned above, the PREDATORS -1.5 (+195) are a tempting play, even on the road.

They covered the puck line Monday at home, and they won by 2 or more goals in three of their past four meetings with the Blackhawks.

Over/Under (O/U)

The UNDER 5.5 (-110) is the lean here as it has dominated for the Predators lately. The Under is 4-1-1 in Nashville’s past six on the road, and 3-0-2 in the past five overall for the Preds.

The Under has also hit in five of the past six for Chicago while going 4-1-1 in its past six games against teams with a winning record.
