Here are today’s picks:

Columbus Blue Jackets @ New Jersey Devils: OVER 5 Goals 1.92

We are going to kick things off with this over tonight. Before the break, the Blue Jackets met the Hurricanes in Carolina, resulting in a 4-3 Columbus win. The line for that game was sent at 5.5 Goals, and the odds were right around 2.33 for the Over on that one. The line is set at 5 goals for this game tonight and there is excellent value here. The Blue Jackets offense has been on fire lately, scoring 3.40 goals per game over their last 10 games, which is quite a few more goals than their average of 2.70 goals per game which is 13th overall for scoring. Even the Devils have had their offense going as of late, they have scored 3.10 goals per game over their last 10 games, while allowing the exact same amount of goals against in that span. The Devils have had 3 of their last 4 games go over the total, while the game that didn’t go over ending in a “push” on exactly 5 goals. The Devils allowed 5 goals against the Blackhawks on Monday while scoring 2 of their own, and defeated Washington 5-4 in an overtime victory on Dec.21, which makes 16 total goals across the Devils last 2 games, for an average of 8 goals per game. There was 28 goals scored over the Devils last 4 games (average of 7 goals per game). The Blue Jackets have had 3 games in a row go over the total, and 6 of their last 7 games, with 1 game resulting in a 5 goal “push”. The Blue Jackets have had 16 total goals scored in their last 2 games, just like the Devils did. When the Blue Jackets play on the road, they allow 3.06 goals against on average, and their penalty kill numbers are weak when playing Away. Columbus has an 81.8% penalty kill overall (18th), but when playing Away their penalty kill drops to only 76.3%. This isn’t good for the Jackets as they take 12.3 PIM/G, compared to the Devils 7.8 PIM/G. The goaltenders haven’t been confirmed yet, but it is likely the Jackets will go with Curtis McElhinney (2.56 GAA, .920 SV%) and the Devils will likely look to Martin Brodeur (2.38 GAA, .902 SV%). There is good value here with the total set at 5 goals, and we are going to take it for a good price.

Ottawa Senators @ Boston Bruins: OVER 5 Goals 1.84

The Senators are coming back to the ice tonight after a 5-0 victory against the Penguins on Monday. The Bruins are looking to keep their Home winning streak alive, as they have not lost a game at home in two months, and have won 7 of their last 9 games overall. The Senators have one of the worst defenses in the League (26th overall) allowing 3.10 goals against per game. The Senators offense is 11th overall with 2.82 goals per game, and the Sens manage to score 3.00 goals per game when playing Away. The Bruins offense is slightly better than Ottawa’s, at 2.84 goals per game (10th overall), but the Bruins have managed to score 3.10 goals per game over their last 10 games, and have put 10 goals on the board in their last 2 games. 2 of the last 3 games for the Bruins have gone Over the total, with one game resulting in a 5 goal “push”. There was 19 total goals scored in the Bruins last 3 games, and average of 6.33 goals per game. The Senators have had 3 of their last 4 games go over the total; the only game that didn’t was the 5-0 victory over the Penguins on Monday. The Senators gave the Penguins 7 power play opportunities, and the Penguins couldn’t score although the Senators have a weak penalty kill 79.1% (24th overall). The Bruins have the 5th best power play in the NHL (22.0 PP%) and have had an incredible 33.3% success rate on the power play over their last 10 games, while the Senators are killing only 75.7% of their penalties successfully when playing on the road. The Senators are also less disciplined than the Bruins, taking 13.4 PIM/G while the Bruins take 11.3 PIM/G. Craig Anderson is probable for the Senators and has a 3.27 GAA and a .901 SV% while Rask is probable for Boston. The Senators love to take shots, currently taking the 2nd most shots per game with 33.2 shots, while allowing the 4th most shots against in the NHL with 34.0 SA/G. The Bruins take 30.4 shots per game (12th overall). If Ottawa has a chance against the red hot bruins they will have to continue scoring goals tonight, as they don’t have much of a defense, which includes weak goaltending. We’ll look for this one to go OVER 5 goals tonight in Boston.
