Bet on Blue Jackets vs. Wild 

The Blue Jackets are fantastic when Bobrovsky is in net most nights, but he might get a rest on a back-to-back. Columbus' backup goaltender, Joonas, Korpisalo, allowed five goals on 29 shots in his lone start so far this season. Meanwhile, Dubnyk should be in net for the Wild. That is a major advantage for the hosts.
