Detroit vs Columbus: NHL Wagering Lines and Game Day Call

Detroit Red Wings: Within a whisper of a playoff position

It’s been a rough and tumble start to the lockout shortened 2012-13 NHL season for the Red Wings. Detroit started the season by trading wins and losses and pushed their record to 7-5 but have now dropped four straight contests. Always competitive, the Wings are in uncharted territory as they currently sit ninth overall in the NHL Western Conference. With 21 consecutive years of making the NHL postseason party on the line (San Jose is next with eight straight years) wins over league doormats like Columbus are a must moving forward. Detroit knocked off Columbus with a 4-3 shootout win during their second game of the season.

Columbus Blue Jackets: Mucking through a long road trip losing streak

Columbus will play in their fourth straight road game, their first since Monday, when they visit the Motor City tonight. Three straight road loses have lead the Blue Jackets to the NHL cellar where we expect they’ll remain for the rest if the season. After they opened the year with a 3-2 S/O win in Nashville, Columbus has dropped six straight roadies. At the start of their current excursion (that’s 6,488 miles in ten days) we said the Jackets would be lucky to return home with a 2-4 record. With the Wings, St. Louis, and Chicago remaining on their itinerary, they could get swept. Columbus defeated Detroit 4-2 on February 2 at the Nationwide Arena.

Red Wings vs. Blue Jackets NHL Betting Odds and Online Sports Betting Prediction

Detroit’s recent losing ways are a win for bettors tonight as the bookmakers at topbet.eu have kept the prices reasonably low for tonight action. The Wings are home chalk at -1.5 (+160) ATS and -190 straight up. Fans of the Blue Jacket get +1.5 pucks (-190) or +160 on the money line. Game total bettors get an Over/Under line that’s posted at 5.5 pucks (O EVEN and U -120) and that OVER is tempting! Staying on the course that has fattened our betting bankroll through the first 16 games of the Blue Jackets season (12-4 on ML wagers) we will happily take the -190 ML odds being offered at TopBet and back the Boys from MoTown tonight!
