St. Louis are 1-5 SU in their last 6 games against an opponent in the Eastern Conference conference.

Columbus are 20-13 ATS at home.

The total has gone OVER in 6 of Columbus' last 9 games.

Prediction

The Blue Jackets are really bad in defense, they're allowing an average of 3.8 gpg in their last 10 games but they Blues haven't been profitable on the road, they beat the Blue Jackets at home but this one should be a close game and I think the Blue Jackets can at least cover the puck line.
