Dallas is 7-0 in their last 7 games as a favorite and 5-2 in their last 7 games overall while the over is 6-1 in their last 7 games as a road favorite. Columbus is 2-6 in their last 8 home games and 4-10 in their last 14 games overall while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 Thursday games. Dallas is 1-8 in the last 9 meetings between these two teams and 1-5 in the last 6 meetings between these two teams in Columbus.

I get why the Blue Jackets with plus money at home is tempting, but the Jackets also continue to be inconsistent right now and I’m still not sold on the goaltending for Columbus right now if we’re being 100% honest. Dallas is still playing like the team that rode a strong defense to the Stanley Cup finals last season but now the offense is getting going as well. I think getting this price with the Stars is too good to pass on, so I’ll lay it and play it with the Dallas Stars in this spot.
