On Thursday, the Winnipeg Jets will face the Nashville Predators in Game 7 of the NHL Western Conference Semifinals. Game time is set 8PM ET at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee.
The two best teams during the regular season are going to meet again for a chance to advance into the Western Conference Finals. Both teams will put everything on the line as there is only 1 game left to play and the loser goes home.
These two teams have alternated wins in this series and both have won on the road. If tiebreaker is needed it is too tough to call who has an advantage in Game 7. However, Nashville has a lot of experience in Game 7 games. Its roster of players have a combined 45 games of Game 7 experience against Winnipeg's 12.
Game 7 experience can be a slim advantage but whoever has a longer puck possession has more scoring chances and has better chance to win the game.
The sportsbook handicappers have installed the Nashville Predators as a 1.5-point favorite to beat the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday night.
