NHL Proline Picks: Predators vs. Canucks (Oct 20, 2011)

 

Nashville Predators (2.55) at Vancouver Canucks (1.57); Total 5

The big story coming out of Vancouver has been the booing (as opposed to the luoing) of Canucks netminder Roberto Luongo. In the Canucks last game they were shutout 4-0 by the New York Rangers. The Canucks outplayed the Rangers for much of the game but just could not beat Lundqvist. The Vancouver fans were so disgusted with Luongo’s play they were mock cheering him for stopping a dump in attempt by the Rangers. Luongo will get a chance to redeem himself tonight as he is confirmed to start in goal for the Canucks. As for the Predators they are coming off a 3-1 loss in Edmonton two nights ago and have now dropped three in a row after opening the season with two wins. Will Luongo bounce back with a strong effort tonight?

Selection:

Sure Luongo has not been playing great to start the season but it has only been a few games and it is a long season. Luongo has been around a long time and the booing by the fans shouldn’t distract him but should be more of a wake up call for him. Tonight’s opponent (The Predators) may be just what the doctor ordered for Luongo. The Preds have dropped three straight games and have managed to score just 5 goals over those three games. I like Luongo to back bounce in this game and shut down the Predators. Currently the Canucks are a 1.57 favorite in this game at Bodog Sportsbook. I don’t like to bet such big favorites so I am going to look to the Nashville Predators team total for this game. The Predators team total for this game is 2.5 goals. I will take UNDER 2.5 goals by the Predators in this game for 1.71 at Bodog Sportsbook. If the Predators score 2 goals or less in this game (like they have done in their last 3 games) this bet is a winner. This bet can be found in the Team Props Bets at Bodog Sportsbook.
