St. Louis is 2-8 in their last 10 games and 1-7 in their last 8 road games. The over is 3-1-1 in St. Louis’ last 5 games. Columbus is 5-12 in their last 17 games against the Central and 3-8 in their last 11 home games. The under is 5-1 in Columbus’ last 6 home games. The over is 5-1-1 in these two teams last 7 head to head meetings. 


Columbus comes into this game on a three game losing streak and has allowed at least four goals in all three games. St. Louis has lost three of their last five games, but is coming off of a victory against San Jose. Neither team is very good this season and each team is allowing at least 3.66 goals against per game. It think this is a pretty evenly matched game, so I am going to side with the home team here.
