Bet on Blue Jackets vs. Blackhawks

We can guarantee this won't be another 10-1 game, but how impressive did Chicago look the other night? To make that kind of statement against the 2017 Stanley Cup champions says a lot. Columbus will provide a stiff taste, but with Chicago staying at home and the Blue Jackets playing on a back-to-back this seems like a no-brainer.
