NHL Odds, Picks & Predictions: Blue Jackets vs. Rangers
The expectations of the Blue Jackets were high going into the season as they improved their roster, but they’ve struggled to start the season. The big pickup, Johnny Gaudreau, is playing well with four goals, and the first two lines have contributed on offense, but their depth has struggled. The defense has been the big reason for their early struggles as they sit 19th in goals against and 29th in goals against above suspected.
Not a good time to see a Rangers offense that is playing well. They’re getting contributions up and down the lineup scoring 3.80 goals per game, with Mika Zibanejad having the third most points.
The Rangers’ defense has also been struggling, and this is an excellent spot to take the over.
Pick: Over 6.5 (-120)
