9* Thursday NHL CLB/PHX
Columbus vs. Phoenix,
01/02/2014 21:00 EDT,
Score: 2 - 0
Money Line: -150 Phoenix
The Phoenix Coyotes host the Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday night. Phoenix is coming off a 4-3 overtime win over Edmonton, while Columbus dropped their last game against Colorado, 5-3.
Phoenix has quietly been one of the better bets in hockey when playing in their own building, winning 11 of 17 home contests so far this year, and that record would be even more impressive if not for a recent shootout loss to San Jose.
The Coyotes have been getting solid goaltending from Mike Smith as he continues to make a case to be between the pipes for Team Canada at the Olympics.
As for Columbus, they’ve been lost without goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky bailing them out in goal.
The team has surrendered 10 goals over their last two games, and 3.5 goals per game over their last four road contests.
We’re also getting this game in the right location as the home team has won five in a row in this series, and eight of the last nine.
The Blue Jackets are 1-6 in their last seven trips to Phoenix.
Good Luck, Razor Ray
