The Columbus Blue Jackets and Dallas Stars face off on Monday in an NHL showdown at the American Airlines Center. 

Blue Jackets Offense Needs to Bounce Back

The Blue Jackets come into this game with a 3-2-2 record overall but in the last game the offense really struggled. The offense failed to score any goals against the New York Islanders and that ws the difference as they were defeated. The Blue Jackets this season is averaging 2.5 goals per game while htier defense is giving up 3.13 goals per game. The offense is ranked 26th in the league while the defense is ranked 18th. 

Blue Jackets Betting Trends

  • The Blue Jackets have lost each of their last eight Monday night games.
  • The Blue Jackets have covered the puck line in nine of their last 10 games as underdogs following a home loss.
  • The Blue Jackets have lost the second period in each of their last five night games at American Airlines Center.
  • The 'Over 2.5 Goals Period 1' market has hit in four of the Blue Jackets' last six games following a home loss.

Stars Look to Bounce Back

The Stars sit with a 4-1-1 record overall but they are coming off a loss in the last game. The Stars scored only one goal against the Maple Leafs and that led to the three goal defeat. Mason Martchment finished with seven shots on goal and a goal. The Stars on the season is averaging only 2.67 goals per game while their defense is giving up 2.33 goals per game. The offense is ranked 24th in the league while the defense is ranked 4th. In this game the defense is going to need to be good.

Shane’s Free Pick

This total is too high. The Stars are giving up only 2.33 goals per game and they are going to lockdown a Blue Jackets offense that hasn’t been good. I also don’t see the Stars running up the score here, and that is going to be the difference here as this game is going to stay under the total. Back the under to cash here. 

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
