As of Tuesday afternoon, 58 percent of public bets have come in on the visiting Blue Jackets. Online wager info also shows that 53 percent of bets are siding with the over.

This is the fourth meeting between the two squads thus far as New Jersey won the first meeting 4-1 in Columbus, but the Blue Jackets have responded with wins at both venues as it prevailed 5-3 on the road and 6-1 at home only 10 days ago. Columbus is 7-3 in the last 10 meetings, while the over is 5-4-1.

The Blue Jackets are not coming in on the best form as they have lost three in a row and eight of their last 10. The over-under has gone 5-5. New Jersey comes in on a four-game winning streak to turn around its fortunes after a four-game losing skid. The Devils are 6-4 in their last 10 contests, while the over is 7-3.

The under is 5-1-2 in the last eight meetings in New Jersey and Columbus has won six of the last seven meetings in New Jersey. Although the Devils are the hotter team right now, Columbus will be playing with some desperation to end its losing skid. Trust in goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky to help carry the Blue Jackets to victory.
