10* NHL TOTAL OF THE WEEK > > TRIPLE "GOW" BLOCKBUSTERS GO MONDAY!
Washington vs. Columbus,
12/16/2019 19:00 EDT,
Score: 0 - 3
Total: -103/+6 Under
The set-up: Washington has won eight of nine, with the lone loss a 5-2 defeat to these very CBJ's. Inexplicably, it was Washington's third straight loss in this series. The Blue Jackets have been terrible overall though, dropping six of their last seven, failing to score twice in the process. The Caps come in off a 5-2 win at Tampa Bay, but I think they'll have their hands full with this desperate home side.
The pick: Washington has seen the total go under the number in all five games it's played in this season when trykng to revenge a loss vs. an opponent, while CBJ has seen the total go under in 11 of its last 14 after playing three straight on the road. This one has low-scoring goaltenders battle written all over it.
