Columbus -½ +250 over FLORIDA

7:05 PM EST. First off, the Jackets are without question the most disrespected team in this market and it’s not even close. Almost daily, the Jackets are underpriced because they are perceived as a weak team for whatever reason when that is not the case at all. Columbus ranks highly in many key possession categories over the first one third of the season and the numbers are even better over the last month. The Jackets outshot the Rangers last game 47-19 but lost 3-2. It was one of the more dominating performances of the season by any team versus another but all this market sees is results. For instance, Boston’s 8-1 win over Montreal will resonate and get loads of credit while the Jackets 3-2 loss to the Rangers will appear as just another loss and get no credit. The Jackets were far more dominating over the Rags than Boston was over Montreal in those two examples but that’s how this results based business works. Columbus is a competitive, talented, hard-working and hungry team that is very worthy of getting behind here but there’s more.

Florida is a very good hockey team too but the Panthers made the big mistake of acting out of desperation when they signed Sergei Bobrovsky to a massive contract in the off-season. So far, zero dividends have been paid back, as Bob continues to be one of the league’s biggest liabilities. If the Panthers weren’t paying him so much, he wouldn’t even be playing but Florida is not going to pay him $80M to sit. They would rather lose than look like idiots. Florida is coming off a 4-2 loss to Minnesota in a game they absolutely dominated by outshooting the Wild 46-25. Bob has been in net once since November 24th because the Panthers can’t stomach him much anymore. Bobrovsky comes in with a save percentage of .884 and the Panthers will turn to him tonight to get a crack at the team he left for greener pastures. Seriously, is there a team in the NHL that knows Bob’s weaknesses more than the players that faced him in practice every day for years? The Jackets' players are salivating at the chance to stick it to their old teammate and like us, they also know that Bob is a weak goaltender that got very lucky one year and won a Vezina. Bob is slow, he’s horrible, he’s a liability to be sure and when he’s in goal, the opposition has a great chance to win.

Pinnacle -½ +268 Bet365 -½ +300 SportsInteraction N/A 5DIMES -½ +260 888Sport -½ +266

DETROIT -½ +300 over Pittsburgh

7:05 PM EST. Regulation only. Betting on hockey is very situational in many cases and that’s one of the main reasons for this choice. The Penguins are coming off back-to-back shutout wins over St. Louis and Arizona on Wednesday and Friday respectively. The Pens will now play their third game in four nights and tail end of back-to-backs before hosting the Canadiens on Tuesday. This is truly a stand-alone, one game road trip that could see the Pens show up in body only, as this opponent isn’t likely going to get the Pens competitive juices flowing. Furthermore, prior to the aforementioned back-to-back shutouts, the Pens allowed Vancouver, St. Louis and Columbus to all score five goals or more in consecutive games.

Detroit has seven wins and 23 losses, which makes them the hungriest team in the NHL. Aside from that, they’re not as bad as that record suggests. Detroit loses so frequently because its goaltending is so weak but we’re not asking the stiff they put in goal today to stand on his head. The Red Wings are coming off a 4-1 loss to the Islanders in which they dominated play but Bernier’s save % was .840 while Varlamov’s was .968. Thanks for coming out. Detroit still has plenty of offensive upside and they have called up highly touted Filip Zadina to play on the second line and perhaps the first PP unit as well. In any event, situationally, Detroit is in a great spot to pick up a home win in what should be a bigger crowd and a more enthusiastic crowd, as Pittsburgh is always a good draw on the road. The price is the icing on the cake that prompts us to move in. This one has a great chance of cashing.

Colorado -½ +240 over BOSTON

7:05 PM EST. Regulation only. Both these teams are hot right now with the Bruins picking up 19 out of a possible 20 points over their last 10 games. Meanwhile, the Avs have reeled off five in a row, which includes back-to-back wins In Toronto and in Montreal this week before this one. Thing is, Boston is winning despite not even coming close to dominating. The B’s are not drawing a lot of penalties, which is a tell tale sign that the opposition isn’t chasing them around. A look at Boston’s 24th place ranking in puck possession numbers over the past 20 days confirms that. Boston isn’t dominating anyone. They beat Ottawa 2-1 despite being outshot 37-24. When they beat the Habs, 8-1 they scored those eight goals on 24 shots. They beat the Rangers and Minnesota in OT while losing to the ice-cold Blackhawks in another OT game. They beat Buffalo 3-2 despite being dominated in puck-possession time and shots on net. The Avs, meanwhile are winning by two goals or more quite frequently and continue to create more scoring opportunities than most.

Boston opened the year with a four-game trip to Dallas, Arizona, Vegas and Colorado. Since then, the B’s have not played more than two in a row on the road. Boston has also been home for four straight so this will be its fifth straight at home. After this one, the B’s will finally hit the road again for four games that will end with two games against the Bolts and Panthers in sunny Florida. The Bruins have been vulnerable but escaping with wins for a month or more and now they’re in an unfavorable spot. We cannot stress enough how much these players look forward to road trips after being at home for an extended period of time.
