Blue Jackets vs. Red Wings Pick

NHL Predictions: Columbus Blue Jackets vs. Detroit Red Wings 11/11/17

Can the Detroit Red Wings pick up a needed win at home when they host the Columbus Blue Jackets tonight at 7PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at, this game is considered even, as both the Red Wings and Blue Jackets are listed with odds of -105 to win. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 5.5 goals. Tonight’s game takes place from Little Caesars Arena in Detroit, Michigan.

Columbus is in a funk right now, as the Blue Jackets have lost four straight following a 3-1 loss at home to Carolina last night. Columbus is 9-7-1 overall and 4-3-1 on the road. The Blue Jackets are averaging 3.06 goals per game while allowing 2.82 per contest. Columbus is being led by Seth Jones and Artemi Panarin, who each have 12 points. Josh Anderson is the leading goal-scorer with six. Sergei Bobrovsky is 8-4-1 in net with a 2.35 GAA and a .922 save percentage.

Detroit is coming off a 6-3 loss at Calgary on Thursday night but the Red Wings have won four of their last six games. Detroit is now 8-8-1 on the season and 2-2-1 at home. The Wings are putting up 2.71 goals per game this season while allowing 2.88 per contest. Anthony Mantha is leading the team with eight goals and eight assists while Dylan Larkin has two goals with 13 assists. Jimmy Howard is 6-5 in net with a 2.48 GAA and a .927 save percentage.

Bet on Blue Jackets vs. Red Wings

Columbus has won three straight meetings with Detroit and seven of the last 10 in this series. Columbus seems to have the better goal scoring and the better netminder as well. Detroit is just 1-6 in its last 7 games when playing on 1 day of rest and 18-39 in its last 57 conference games. The public betting is backing the Blue Jackets tonight and I agree. Look for Columbus to take one on the road.
