Columbus Blue Jackets Betting Analysis
There really isn’t any way to put a positive spin on the Blue Jackets campaign. They’re the worst team in the NHL, and have scored, on average, the fifth fewest goals per game. They’ve also surrendered the third most against and have the second worst power play.
In their latest outing, prized off-season acquisition Johnny Gaudreau returned to Calgary to face the team he called home for parts of nine seasons. He’s recorded a multi-point game in three of his last six battles. He has 46 points, with the next closest Jacket being Patrik Laine with 18 fewer.
Edmonton Oilers Betting Analysis
Just as they were feeling the heat to remain in the Western Conference Wild Card position, the Oilers have spun together six straight victories. In those affairs, they’ve scored at least four goals in all of them. All this after they had failed in all but one of their previous five outings.
They’ve been lighting the lamp at will (third best in the NHL), and free-agent signee Jack Campbell has finally turned the corner. He was miserable the first three months (.876 save %, 3.90 GAA).
Jack Campbell’s last 5 games:
.913 vs Anaheim
.962 vs SJ
.900 vs Vegas
.935 vs Seattle
.903 vs Tampa
Looks like All-Star Jack is back

However, he’s been between the pipes for all but one of their games during their winning streak. His numbers are far better at .916 save % and 2.15 GAA. He might not suit up, which would benefit Columbus as Stuart Skinner has been shaky of late, though he won his last contest. In two of his previous three starts, he was pulled, and is 0-3-2 in his last five home games.
The over is set at 6.5 goals for this one. Our model has the game going the home squads way, by a count of 4.3-3.38. Edmonton has won five of their last six against the Eastern Conference. While Columbus has been dreadful against the East (7-22-1), they’ve been halfway respectable versus the West (7-8-2).

Edmonton has won five of six against their counterparts, with the exception of their latest skirmish. Over 6.5 goals have been scored in eight of CBJ’s last eleven games, while it’s also hit in six of the Oilers last seven contests.
Blue Jackets vs Oilers Pick
The Oilers have been red hot of late, and they’re going up against a team that has proven they are to be taken lightly. They aren’t out of the woods yet either, as they still desperately need more W’s to get in the top-three of the Pacific and comfortably clear in the playoff picture.
Blue Jackets vs Oilers Same-Game Parlay Picks
|Edmonton Oilers Moneyline||-390|
|Over 6.5 Goals||-135|
|Connor McDavid Anytime Goal Scorer||-170|
For the purposes of the parlay, adding Connor McDavid (snipes in six of seven games) as any anytime goal scorer is needed in order to have some juice to it. That’ll happen when the odds on the moneyline are -390, and it’s super risky to take Edmonton as a -2.5 puckline favorite. Bank on them to win seven straight in a single season for the first time in 20 years.
Pick: Edmonton Oilers Moneyline (-390), Over 6.5 Goals (-135)
