Money Line Pick
The Blue Jackets continue to stumble. As of Monday afternoon, the team has gone winless in their last seven games (although five of those losses have come in overtime or later). Columbus hasn’t been world beaters on the road (going 12-8-10), and they’re 5-5-1 on the second night of back-to-backs this season. For what it’s worth, Columbus owns a 6-3-1 mark against the Wild in their last 10 meetings, but the two squads have yet to face off this season (in fact, they’ll play two-straight this week).
Over Under Pick
Meanwhile, the Wild have been playing significantly better as of late, going 9-5-1 since the middle of January. Minnesota is also a solid 17-10-5 at home this year (although their 14-18 record against the spread isn’t great), and they’re 14-10-4 as favorites this season.
