Free Columbus Blue Jackets vs. St. Louis Blues NHL Prediction
Considering no rest on each side, with two teams that seem to capitalize with the puck, this game appears to be a coinflip. As the odds are in the home team’s favor, some dog value lies with Columbus.
Reason being, St. Louis is 0-4 against Eastern Conference teams this year, and the underdog is 4-1 SU in the last 5 games between these two.
With all that being said, these no rest games are very unpredictable to predict a moneyline winner. However, they almost always end with a ton of goals, coming by defensive exhaustion in the third period.
