Money Line Pick
The next stretch for both the Blue Jackets and Flyers should feel like a playoff atmosphere, as they face-off in the first of two-straight games against each other. Columbus has really lost its mojo, with five straight losses coming into this all-important clash at Wells Fargo Center. Philadelphia meanwhile is 6-4 in its last 10 games. Both teams are fighting for their lives to make the playoffs, but the Flyers might be in a better spot the Blue Jackets currently. Columbus has won five of the last seven head-to-heads against Philadelphia. The Blue Jackets have yet to win this season against the Flyers, and their last visit to Wells Fargo Center resulted in a blowout loss. Take the Flyers to get the home win.
Over Under Pick
Columbus has had plenty of ups and downs this season, but they have found a way to put up numbers well above their average of 2.58 goals per game. The Flyers remain one of the many explosive teams in the NHL in goal scoring. Two of the Blue Jackets’ last three games have resulted in totals of seven goals. Philadelphia has had three straight games finish with eight-goal totals. The last time these teams met at Wells Fargo Center, the Flyers and Blue Jackets combined for an 11-goal total. Taking an over 5.5 total is a must.
