Hi folks, I have to say, we’ve been very un-lucky in the last few picks.
The over pick in the last 2= 2 back to back scoreless 3rd periods!! Seriously!! With boat loads of shots and near misses.
It can be agitating but nevertheless, part of the game.
Onwards and Upwards.
This game will go down between the Columbus Blue Jackets ans New York Rangers.
The Rangers have lost 2 games straight coming into this one, putting just 3 pucks away in that time.
The CBJ were beating easily by the Boston Bruins 6-2 in their last outing, Their first loss after 4 consecutive wins.
Totals for The Columbus Blue Jackets gave been trending over 3-2 in their last 5, while The Rangers have trended 1-2-2.
Thats just 1 over, 2 pushes and 2 unders.
The last 5 head to heads have gone 4-1 the way of the over. With plenty of goals being scored by both clubs. Going back 10 games, we see a 8-2 OVER trend.
The last match up held on the 13th of Jan this year, went over to the tune of 7-5 for a Columbus Blue Jackets win.
Looking at the probable goalies = for the Rangers we have
|Alexandar Georgiev GAA 2.95|
And for the Blue Jackets we have
|Sergei Bobrovsky GAA 2.59|
Sergei Bobrovsky had a bad outing in his the last game for the CBJ, Letting 4 through and taking the loss.
The CBJ really need a win here, and will be playing like its the playoffs beacuse it really is that important here for them to keep in front of the Canadiens.
The Rangers are scoring 2.69 and allowing 3.27 and are averaging 29.2 shots a game.
CBJ are scoring 3.10 and allowing 2.84 while taking 31.6 shots a game.
The over unders here in the heads to heads are 8-2 to the OVER.
And the last time these teams played we saw a combined sore of 12. Give me the over in this one.
