The Predators travel to Colorado this afternoon and I am confident that they can leave with the win. The Predators have taken control in the Central Division and will consolidate their lead with a positive result today. An impressive win over the Lightning two games back was consolidated with a tough win over the Bruins on Monday, and they should simply be too good for the Avalanche.
The Hawks will host Melbourne United in the Round 5 opener tonight and they away side are primed for another win. It was business as usual for Melbourne in Round 4, who recorded two wins from as many starts against the Taipans and Kings respectively. Both were comfortable wins and they face a club that remains favourite to win this season’s wooden spoon, this evening. The line is only set at 2.5 points and I think that is very achievable for Melbourne.
