This is a key game in the Western Conference as both teams are battling for a playoff spot. Gamblers that have made a hockey bet on Columbus have been rewarded more often than not this season.
Hockey betting scheduling information shows that the Canucks are playing the second game of a four-game homestand on Sunday. Somewhat surprisingly, the Canucks have struggled against Columbus in hockey betting. The Blue Jackets have won 7 of the last 10 meetings between the two teams as hockey betting numbers show. At Vancouver, the Blue Jackets have won three of the last five games as hockey betting results show. Last month the Blue Jackets won 6-5 at Vancouver. The Blue Jackets also won both meetings in Columbus earlier this season against Vancouver. Columbus has won the last five meetings against the Canucks overall as hockey bet stats indicate.
Goals have been at a premium in this series. The under is 5-2-3 in the last 10 games between the two teams as hockey bet numbers tell us. At Vancouver, the under is 3-1-1 in the last five games as hockey betting stats indicate. The games are almost always close as seven of the last ten meetings have been decided by just a single goal as hockey betting results tell us. That could be the case again on Sunday.
Columbus has Steve Mason who has been leading the league in goals against average this season as hockey betting statistics show. Vancouver has Roberto Luongo and he is always among the league leaders in goals against average as hockey betting stats show. The Blue Jackets rank in the Top 10 in defense but sometimes they struggle to score goals. The Canucks are stronger on offense ranking near the Top 10 but they are outside the Top 10 in defense as hockey bet statistics indicate. The Canucks still have the Sedin twins and Daniel leads the team in scoring. The plus minus leader on the team is Willie Mitchell while Shane O’Brien leads the team in penalty minutes. The difference in this game could be Rick Nash who is a sniper that can win games in hockey betting.
