NHL GAME OF THE WEEK ~ BIG GAME ALERT!
Vancouver vs. Columbus,
03/01/2020 19:00 EDT,
Score: 3 - 5
Money Line: -130 Columbus
I'm playing on COLUMBUS. Both teams could really use a win. However, with the venue and schedule in their favor, I expect the Jackets to have the advantage. While Columbus had yesterday off, the Canucks are off a hard-fought loss against Toronto. A Saturday night game against the Leafs is always a big deal; fatigue may well be a factor. Vancouver is 11-18 the past couple of seasons, when playing the second of b2b games. Both teams are much better on home ice. The Jackets are 19-12-4 (19-16) at home but 12-9-10 (12-19) on the road. The Canucks are 20-7-4 (20-11) at home but 14-17-2 (14-19) on the road. Knowing that they'll have to face these same Canucks at Vancouver in a week, expect the Jackets to take advantage of the favorable schedule and for them to "hold serve" on home ice.
