Oddsmakers from online sports book Sportsbook.com have made the Blue Jackets –113 money line favorites over their game tonight with the Avalanche (+104). The over/under total for this game is currently 5.5 goals.

The Blue Jackets enter Tuesday’s game with a 33-29-4-6 record and are 17-13-3-3 on the road this season. According to latest NHL trends, the under is 37-32 overall in Columbus games, and 17-16 when the Jackets play on the road.

Colorado heads into tonight’s contest with a 27-36-7-1 overall record, which includes a 14-17-4-0 mark at home. The over is 44-26 in all Avalanche games this season, including 25-10 when they play at home.

NHL Free Pick: The Jackets are coming off a 3-0 home loss to the Devils on Sunday in which they racked up just 13 shots on goal. But Rick Nash has registered nine points in his last eight games and could provide a spark tonight against a Colorado team that just ended a 10-game losing skid. The Aves are just 1-7 in their last eight games following a win and 1-4 in their last fie contests when they’re a home underdog. They’re 1-4 in their last five games playing on five days of rest and 17-37 in their last 54 outings as an underdog. Columbus isn’t the picture of hockey perfection but at –113, the Jackets certainly represent some value tonight against a bad Colorado squad.
