Anaheim at Nashvile +100 O/U 5 
Recommendation: Nashville

The Western Conference Quarterfinal series between the Anaheim Ducks and the Nashville Predators shifts scenes from Orange County to the Music City starting with tonight's Game 3. The Predators pulled off a pair of stunning 3-2 wins to jump out to a 2-0 series lead. Forward Filip Forsberg and defenseman Roman Josi lead all Preds scorers with 3 points, but the star of this series has been goaltender Pekka Rinne who has made 54 saves on 58 shots over his last 120 minutes. The 33-year-old netminder has won each of his last four starts and now returns home to Bridgestone Arena where he has won five of his last seven starts.

Anaheim has won four of its last five games on the road but the Ducks' offense has had trouble converting as of late scoring two goals or fewer in six of their last eight games overall. The stellar  goaltender efforts of John Gibson has been wasted in the last two games because of their inefficiency to find the back of the net. The Ducks are 0-6 all-time when trailing 0-2 in a series while Nashville is leading a series 2-0 for the first time in franchise history. With a chance to put a stranglehold on this series at home and potentially clinch with a sweep later in the week, I'll back the Predators to get the win at a pick'em price.
