Blue Jackets look to spoil the party in the Six vs the Leafs

The Columbus Blue Jackets aim to win their third game in a row when they lock horns with the Toronto Maple Leafs. The Blue Jackets are coming off a convincing win vs the Islanders last night while the Leafs have won eight of their last nine games. Toronto opened as the favorite to win its fifth game in a row.

  • The total has gone UNDER in six of Columbus’s last nine games on the road.
  • Toronto is 6-14 ATS in its last 20 games.
  • Toronto is 5-0 SU in its last five games at home.

Columbus will be in desperation mode tonight as it has dropped to ninth in the Eastern Conference. The Blue Jackets are 3-6 SU in their last nine games and now sit one point back of Carolina for the eighth seed. One of the main reasons has been their lack of scoring as Columbus ranks 28th in the NHL in goals per game (2.59).

If Blue Jackets backers are looking for trends to cling to, look no further than their record when these two teams meet. The Blue Jackets have dominated their matchup vs the Leafs and are 6-1 SU and ATS in the last seven games. They’ve also won eight of their last nine games at the ACC vs the Buds.

That being said, Toronto has looked like a different team in the last few weeks and it all starts with scoring. The Leafs are averaging four goals per game in February and holding teams to 2.67 goals per game, both ranked in the top 10 in that span. They knocked off Tampa Bay and Nashville in that stretch and when the Leafs are rolling like this, it may be too tall of an order to ask Columbus to break the streak.

The total opened at 5.5 and trends are pointing toward an OVER. Toronto’s scoring exploits have been noted and the OVER has hit in three of the Maple Leafs’ last four games. The OVER has also hit in four of the last six games in this matchup.
