Sabres vs. Blue Jackets Pick

NHL Predictions: Buffalo Sabres vs. Columbus Blue Jackets 10/25/17

Will the Columbus Blue Jackets and Buffalo Sabres find the net often during tonight’s 8PM ET meeting?

According to oddsmakers at, the Blue Jackets are the clear favorite to win this game, as they are getting odds of -225 to win. The Sabres are listed with a money line of +185 to prevail, while the over/under total has been set at 5.5 goals. Tonight’s game takes place from Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio and will air live on NBCSN.

Buffalo is coming off a 1-0 win over the Red Wings at home last night to improve to 3-5-2 on the year. Buffalo has gone 6-3-1 with the over through 10 games. The Sabres are averaging just 2.60 goals per game while allowing 3.50 per contest. Buffalo has three players with 11 points. Jason Pominville, Evander Kane and Jack Eichel each have 11. Kane has a team-high six goals. Robin Lehner has appeared in net in seven games and has a 2.73 GAA with a .913 save percentage.

The Blue Jackets are coming off a 6-4 loss at home to the Kings on Saturday. Columbus is now 5-3 on the season and 4-4 with the over/under total. The Blue Jackets are putting up 3.13 goals per game this season while allowing 2.63 per contest. Artemi Panarin is leading the team with one goal and eight assists while Sonny Milano has a team-high five goals. Sergei Bobrovsky has a 2.16 GAA with a .927 save percentage in net.

Bet on Sabres vs. Blue Jackets

These two have hit the over in five of their last eight meetings. They also are 10-4-1 with the over in their last 15 overall meetings and 6-2 with the over in their last eight meetings in Columbus. I think the over hits again tonight as Buffalo is coming off a grinder last night and should be eager to get back to scoring. Columbus tallied a total of 10 goals in its last game, so giving up goals has been somewhat common.
