Tampa Bay vs. Columbus,
02/10/2020 19:30 EDT,
Score: 2 - 1
Total: -115/+6 Under
The Blue Jackets' defense and goaltending are key to their run of success of late. Netminder Elvis Merzlikins has recorded five shutouts in the last nine contests, and the team's goalies have a league-high seven on the season, and Im betting another concerted effort to play tough defence will be on tonights agenda vs a offensively explosive Tampa Bay team. The Bolts in a recent game vs the Isles matched their opponents tough defensive game plan, with a similar style of play and it payed dividends in a 3-1 win, and Im betting that will be modus operandi here again tonight in a tilt I have pegged to stay under the total. COLUMBUS is 24-9 UNDER against good offensive teams - scoring 2.85+ goals/game this season wiht a combined average of 4.8 gpg scored. TAMPA BAY is 6-0 UNDER after having won 15 or more of their last 20 games this season with a combined average of 4.7 gpg scored.
