Puck Line Pick
It hasn’t been pretty for the Blue Jackets lately. After going on a dominating 9-0-1 stretch, they’ve gone winless over their last four games (0-2-2). Curiously, three of those straight-up losses came at home, meaning Columbus’s solid 12-7-8 road record is still intact. Further, the team has a convincing 19-8 away record against the spread, and they’ve absolutely dominated the Devils in their previous meetings this season (they’ve outscored their opponent by a 10-1 mark).
Over Under Pick
Meanwhile, despite being down towards the bottom of the standings, the Devils have been playing a bit better of late. The team is 3-2-0 over their last five, although we can’t deny that the active stretch was preceded by a 1-3-3 run. Further, New Jersey is only 9-10-10 on the road, although they’re 15-14 against the spread.
