Dallas is 3-13 in their last 16 games overall and 1-5 in their last 6 road games while the over is 4-1-1 in their last 5 games playing on no rest. Columbus is 17-36 in their last 53 games overall and 1-5 in their last 6 home games while the over is 3-0-2 in their last 5 games overall. Dallas is 2-11 in the last 13 meetings between these two teams and 1-7 in the last 8 meetings between the two teams in Columbus.

I get the case that could be made for either side here, as Dallas is probably the better team, but the Blue Jackets have all of the momentum after stealing the win in the dying seconds on Saturday. With that said, with two struggling teams, you might as well try to get the most bang for your buck and best value and that’s taking the Blue Jackets at home with plus money. Like I said, Columbus sucked out the win late on Saturday and while it’s hard to beat the same team in as many days, the bottom line is that it’s doable with how Dallas has had issues this season so I’ll take a shot on Columbus here.
