KingPin.pro provides their expert NHL picks for today, offering analysis, trends, odds, injuries, and their prediction for the game. The Predators are coming off an impressive overtime victory against the Anaheim Ducks, led by Thomas Novak's two-goal performance. Can the Red Wings stop the Predators' momentum and secure an important win on the road?
The Predators are currently fifth in the Central Division and will be desperate for a win to keep their playoff hopes alive. They boast a solid home record of 16-11-3 and have won seven of their last ten games. Roman Josi has been exceptional this season, with 17 goals and 39 assists to his name. However, the player to watch out for is Thomas Novak, who has five goals and six assists in his last ten games. The Predators will look to Novak to continue his hot streak and lead them to victory against the Red Wings.
Detroit Red Wings
The Red Wings are seventh in the Atlantic Division and have struggled on the road this season, with a record of 13-15-5. They have won just three of their last ten games and will be looking to turn their form around in Nashville. Dylan Larkin has been their standout player this season, with 25 goals and 39 assists. However, they will need contributions from other players if they are to upset the Predators on their home ice.

However, the Red Wings have been given odds of +138, making them a tempting underdog pick for bettors. The over/under for this game is set at 5.5 goals, with the over currently favored.
