The Vancouver Canucks face the Nashville Predators in Game 6 of their Western Conference first round series in the Stanley Cup Playoffs on May 3, 2024, with the Canucks as +110 underdogs and the Predators as -130 favorites. Currently, the Canucks have 36% of the moneyline bets, while the Predators lead with 64%. The opening total of 5.5 has 45% of bets for the under and 55% for the over. Stay tuned to see how this matchup unfolds between these two competitive teams.

Vancouver comes into this game with a 3-2 series lead, but they blew their chance to close things out at home in Game 5. Now the pressure shifts entirely onto the Canucks as the series shifts back to Nashville, as a home win from the Predators tonight will mean a Game 7 back in Vancouver. That is exactly what we expect to happen, as the Preds should force this series into a deciding game over the weekend.

We saw a similar situation unfold in the series between the Boston Bruins and Toronto Maple Leafs this week. Boston had a chance to close out the series at home in Game 5 but lost that game, then lost Game 6 on the road to set up a deciding Game 7. Look for the same thing to happen in this series, as Canucks vs Predators Game 6 should go to Nashville to set up a dramatic Game 7 between these teams, which Vancouver will likely be the favorite to win.
