Columbus is 10-2 in their last 12 Monday games and 7-15 in their last 22 road games while the under is 9-3-1 in their last 13 games as a road underdog. Carolina is 8-2 in their last 10 games overall and 5-2 in their last 7 home games while the over is 6-1 in their last 7 games as a favorite. Columbus is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings between these two teams while the under is 20-7-2 in the last 29 meetings and 5-0-1 in the last 6 meetings between these two teams in Carolina.

I’m going to back the under here. I know Carolina’s 3-0 at home this year but they just came off of a grueling road trip so it may take time to get reacclimated with being at home, while Columbus doesn’t necessarily play high-scoring hockey to begin with. I think this could end up being a game that we get stuck at 4 goals or maybe push 5, but in the end I still see us coming in under this number.
