Toronto Maple Leafs @ Columbus Blue Jackets (10/31/14) Preview

The Columbus Blue Jackets (1-4 in their last 5) take on the Toronto Maple Leafs (2-3 in their last five) tonight in Columbus Ohio. Both teams currently sit in 7th place in their divisions and run the risk of falling even farther behind the early season leaders with a loss.

Last Games:
CBJ 10/28 vs OTT L 5-2.   TOR 10/28 vs BUF W 4-0.

These teams find themselves in very similar situations at this early point in the season. With weak defenses which give up great scoring opportunities and large numbers of goals and offenses which tend to stagnate as they tire, this game will most likely come down to the team which scores last, late in the third.

3/3/14 TOR 1 - CBJ 3
2013  TOR 0 - CBJ 6
2013 CBJ 5 - TOR 2
2011 CBJ 1 - TOR 4
2010 TOR 2 - CBJ 3

Toronto -120
Columbus +100
Over/Under 5.5

With even money on the home team here, my pick is on Columbus to take this one. The lackluster defense of these squads had me leaving to the over as well.
Columbus +100
Over 5.5
