Kings vs. Blue Jackets Pick

NHL Predictions: Can the Kings upset the Blue Jackets? 10/21/17

Can the Los Angeles Kings pick up another win on the road when they face the Columbus Blue Jackets when the two meet tonight at 7PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at, the Blue Jackets are favored at home, as they are getting odds of -140 to win, while the Kings are listed with a money line of +120 to win. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 5.5 goals. Tonight’s game takes place from Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio.

The Kings are on a three-game win streak right now following a 5-1 win over the Canadiens on Wednesday. Los Angeles is now 5-0-1 on the season and 1-0 on the road. Los Angeles is scoring 3.50 goals per game this season while allowing just 1.67 per game. Jonathan Quick has been great in net, posting a 1.59 GAA and .950 save percentage over five games. Offensively, the team is without Jeff Carter for a few months due to an ankle injury. Anze Kopitar and Dustin Brown are currently leading the team with four goals each.

The Blue Jackets are coming off a 2-0 loss to the Lightning at home on Thursday. That snapped a four-game win streak. The Jackets are now 5-2 this season and 2-1 at home. Columbus is putting up 3.00 goals per game while allowing 2.14 per contest. Artemi Panarin is leading the team with eight points while Sonny Milano has a team-high four goals. Sergei Bobrovsky has been solid in net, posting a 1.58 GAA and .946 save percentage this year.

Bet on Kings vs. Blue Jackets

The Blue Jackets have looked good this season despite the loss to the Lightning. Their goaltending has been great, it’s just a matter of the offense finding the net themselves. I think that will happen tonight, despite Quick playing great as well. The home team has won seven of the last 10 between these two. The public is behind the Blue Jackets tonight, and I tend to agree.
