Columbus Blue Jackets at Washington Capitals: Saturday, Dec. 4, 2021
As we are heading into the beginning of December, we are beginning to see which teams are good and which were just some media hype. Today, we have five games throughout the second half of the week that we will dive into. Let’s talk some hockey and determine where we should be leaning in these specific games.
Washington Capitals should Cover the Spread vs Columbus
These two teams are coming into this game with a day off, but the Capitals are 15-7 against the spread while Columbus is 12-7 against the spread. Washington is dominant at home as they are 7-1-3 in 11 games this season, while the Blue Jackets are 4-4 on the road.
The difference in this game will be on the defensive side of the ice as Columbus is giving up 3.11 goals per game while Washington is allowing 2.36 goals per game. Even without T.J. Oshie, as he is currently on the Injured Reserve, Alex Ovechkin is carrying the offense as he has 11 points in his previous five games. Go with the Washington Capitals to cover the spread at home in this game.
