ESPN NHL Pick Colorado Avalanche vs. Columbus Blue Jackets
Columbus is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings between these two teams but just 9-20 in the last 29 meetings between these two teams in Colorado. Both these teams have performed poorly this season and frankly they are not worth your money. Colorado has consistently failed to live up to the expectations set at the beginning of the season. Columbus on the other hand have had periods of brilliance followed by disappointment and failures. Both these teams are coming into this encounter on a losing streak. Columbus has performed slightly better as compared to Colorado, also the Blue Jackets know that losing will make it harder for them to qualify. Columbus still has something to play for, and in my opinion it might just be enough to get over the line.
Pick: Columbus Blue Jackets +100
