Stephen Nover's Early Totals Discount Casher
Edmonton vs. Columbus,

Score: 4 - 0
Total: -105/+6½ Under
Given the early start time and playoff importance of this matchup, I'm expecting a more defensive-minded game than the oddsmaker.
The Oilers are not a big scoring team despite having superstar Connor McDavid. Edmonton ranks 25th in scoring. The Oilers have scored two goals or fewer in eight of their last 10 games.
The Blue Jackets are breaking in a bunch of new faces. They are usually good for three goals, but not much more having gone 15 of the past 17 games netting four or fewer goals.
