Game 1 of both Conference Finals is over with and it was the road teams that came away with the victory both times. Both games went to overtime.

The Predators defeated the Ducks 3-2 on Friday thanks to an overtime goal by Neal. And the Ottawa Senators continue to surprise and impress with Bobby Ryan getting a crucial overtime goal last night. It was a tight 2-1 victory and that one promises to be an interesting series.

We move onto tonight.

The Nashville Predators will be on the road again in Anaheim, looking for a big win over the Ducks.

The Ducks will need a better performance than last time. The Predators came to play and dominated them on the shot charts. Will be interesting to see what happens tonight.

Quick note that the WNBA season has begun, and Graeme has gotten off to a 2-0 start with his betting tips. You can check them out and subscribe for free at WNBATips.com.

Ducks vs Predators Game 2 Betting Tips:

Scott: Game one was a great game.

The Ducks scored first, the Preds answered.  The Preds scored next, the Ducks answered.  The game needed OT and the Predators came away with the huge game 1 road victory.  With the win the Preds are now 9-2 in this year’s playoffs.  Just incredible considering that they are a wildcard team.

The Ducks played a solid game but they now have a better idea of what they are up against.  I picked the Preds to win this series in 6 games and I still like that pick.

I like the Ducks to bounce back and even the series in this one before the series moves to Nashville for a couple games.  If not than they face going down 2-0 and head to Nashville where the Preds haven’t lost during the postseason.

Ducks win incl OT/SO 

Graeme: I’m hoping to place a bet on the Over on saves that Rinne makes.

I have to see the line first however and it’s not up yet.

It’s Mothers Day here in Canada so it’s possible I won’t be back at the computer so I figure I’ll get the tips posted just now and edit it in after if I have a chance.

So no bet for me just yet but likely taking the saves by Rinne. Just have to wait to see the line and then I’ll fully analyze it.

    What do you think about under 5? Ducks would have to push their defense to win this and not allow so many shots to Preds as the first match. Most of the playoffs games are underish, also.

    Just two leans: Nashville WIN and UNDER.
    While the gravity is for this series to be producing UNDER results, some OVERs will show up, probably, and this years playoffs have seen teams mix UNDER with OVER about 50%-50% between Game 2 and Game 5. However, Nashville has been trending lower scoring matchups and Anaheim (due to facing Edmonton?) is higher. If Nashville stays strong on specialty teams, in the last few games, they’re considerably better than Anaheim (power play and penalty kills) though not at all, going back 10 games or so. It’s dicy! Nashville seems to have found out how to raise their team performance a few notches in the playoffs, and it’s not wearing off. If Nashville takes leads and Anaheim gets into penalty trouble out of frustration or desperation, they might lose fast. Possibly a sweep. I’d feel more comfortable on the UNDER bet than choosing a side tonight.
