NHL Network Rout - Rickenbach NHL Rotation #33 Monday 10* Top Play Columbus Blue Jackets Puck Line +1.5 goals -125 @ Washington Capitals @ 7:05 ET - You have to lay about a 125 price to have the Blue Jackets +1.5 goals but I feel strongly that having the goal and a half is well worth that price. Prior to an ugly 4-1 loss at Florida on Saturday, Columbus last 26 games had featured 11 wins, 9 losses by a single goal and just 6 defeats by a margin of 2 or more markers. The point is that if you had the Blue Jackets at +1.5 goals throughout this stretch you cashed in 20 of 26 times which is nearly an 80% win rate. Columbus is fired up after the 4-1 loss to the Panthers and I feel they're catching Washington at a great time to spring the upset here. The Capitals just got back from a long road trip out west which included a very rare sweep of the California teams. The first game back east after a lengthy road trip out west tends to be very tough on teams and Washington is feeling a little too good about themselves right now too. That said, the Blue Jackets are going to prove to be the hungrier and scrappier team in this one and I see them hanging around throughout this game. If Columbus does fall short look for the defeat to come by just a single goal. As strong as Washington has been this season note that they have only won 7 of their past 20 games by a margin of 2 or more goals. That's right, since late October the Capitals have won a game by 2 or more goals just 35% of the time. On the season Washington has played 14 home games and only 5 of the 14 have resulted in a win by two or more goals. Given the above as well as the situation, back the road dog here. 10* COLUMBUS +1.5 goals on the Puck Line
