Nashville vs. Dallas,
01/01/2020 14:00 EDT,
Score: 2 - 4
Money Line: +111 Nashville
The set-up: This is the 2020 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic. The Preds come in hungry here after back-to-back home-and-home losses to the Penguins. Overall Nashville is averaging 3.45 GPG and allowing 3.29. Goaltender Pekka Rinne is 16-12-12 with a 2.73 GAA lifetime vs. the Stars. Dallas has won two straight, but it still comes in averaging only 2.63 GPG, while allowing 2.48.
The pick: The road team has won in five of the last six between these clubs and Nashville is 6-2 in its last eight as a road underdog. I think the Predators are the hungrier side today and I think they're definitely worth a second look in this contest.
