Matchup History

St. Louis’ 5-2 win over Columbus back on October 15th, 2022, made it five straight meetings between these two teams without back-to-back winners.


St. Louis is 1-7 in their last 8 road games and 2-8 in their last 10 games overall while the under is 6-1-4 in their last 11 games played on 1 days rest. Columbus is 17-40 in their last 57 games overall and 5-12 in their last 17 games against the Central division while the under is 5-1 in their last 6 home games.


I’m sticking with the Blues here. I said coming into this game that I’d be on the side where I’m getting plus money and luckily I feel that we’re getting the better team at plus money. Columbus is the worst team in the league and every win hurts their draft positioning. St. Louis is a streaky team, but they’re the better team and won their last outing so I think they can start a new win streak here. Give me St. Louis.
