The San Jose Sharks and the Columbus Blue Jackets meet in NHL action from the Nationwide Arena on Saturday. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.

Odds

San Jose is a -135 road favorite while the Columbus Blue Jackets are +115 home underdogs and the total for this game is set at 6.5 goals.

Injuries

The Sharks have no new additions to their injury report while Joonas Korpisalo is questionable for this game due to a personal matter for the Blue Jackets.

Matchup History

San Jose won the last meeting back on April 19th, 2022, trading wins back and forth between the two for the last three head-to-head meetings.

Trends

San Jose is 16-35 in their last 51 road games and 17-46 in their last 53 games overall while the over is 5-1 in their last 6 road games. Columbus is 18-46 in their last 64 games overall and 1-4 in their last 5 home games while the over is 11-4-1 in their last 16 games against the Pacific division.

Pick

I’m sticking with San Jose here, even on the road. The Blue Jackets were dismantled by the Ducks in their epic collapse in their last game, and while the Blue Jackets normally do their best work at home, it’s the Sharks that also do a lot of winning on the road. I think San Jose being favored on the road here tells you all you need to know for this game. Give me San Jose.
