The Columbus Blue Jackets and the Edmonton Oilers meet in NHL action from Rogers Place on Wednesday night. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.
Edmonton is a massive -380 home favorite while Columbus are +310 road underdogs with a total set at 6.5 goals.
Carson Meyer is the latest name added to Columbus’ injury report as he’s out until late February with an oblique injury. For Edmonton, Kailer Yamamoto is still out indefinitely with an undisclosed injury while Ryan Murray is out until early February with a back injury. Evander Kane is doubtful for this game due to a personal matter while Mattias Janmark is probable for this game after dealing with an illness.
Columbus’ 5-2 win back on April 24th, 2022 snapped Edmonton’s three-game head-to-head win streak.
Columbus is 19-52 in their last 71 road games and 19-47 in their last 66 games overall while the over is 15-5-1 in their last 21 games against the Pacific division. Edmonton is 6-0 in their last 6 games overall and 28-8 in their last 36 games against a team with a winning percentage below .400 while the over is 19-7-2 in their last 28 games overall.
I’m backing the over here. I don’t trust the goaltending on either side and the ML price is too shady to mess with on either side as Edmonton’s the better team, but even the puck line doesn’t provide any value. I think however they come, we’re marked for goals here, so give me the over.
