Risking 1.00 To Win 1.68
Today’s Free pick is a win in reg or win in 60 minutes play on the Columbus Blue Jackets
We have a strong system play here on the Blue Jackets, the Leafs got a big home win vs Buffalo, Columbus is coming off a home loss to Ottawa. I think this is a good spot for the Blue Jackets to rebound and get a big win.
Columbus just finished a rough road trip against the California teams, winning only 1 of 3 games then losing their first game back home to Ottawa, they are dealing with some key injuries but I still think they will be ready for tonight vs a very overrated Leafs team.
We are taking the Win in Regulation line here meaning that Columbus needs to win without overtime or a shootout. This may be called the 60 Minute line on your book.
Looking back at how Columbus has performed since the beginning of the 2013 season, they rarely go to overtime and they almost never win in OT, which means there is no value in taking the money line, its better to just take the win in regulation line and get the nice plus money bonus at +168
So far this season they have No overtime games, and last year they only went to OT 5 times and they lost 4 of those 5. This means they either win in regulation time or they lose. So there is no point in taking Columbus on the Money line, the value is on the Win in regulation play.
Lock it in.
