Scott "The Bulldog" Rickenbach NHL Game #63 Saturday Free Pick Edmonton Oilers Puck Line (+1.5 goals) @ Columbus Blue Jackets @ 1:05 ET - This is truly a fantastic situational spot and, though I do expect the Oilers to get the outright upset here, I am more comfortable laying the very reasonable price (-125 range) to have Edmonton on the puck line at +1.5 goals. The added "insurance" of the +1.5 goals could come in handy should this one be another tight finish. The Blue Jackets are off a hard-fought 4-3 OT win over the division rival Flyers. Though Columbus has won 6 of their last 10 games, that was the 2nd win by just a single goal during this stretch. In other words, laying 1.5 goals with the Blue Jackets equates to a 4-6 run at the betting window. Not only is Columbus off a key win, they host a tougher team (Winnipeg) tomorrow. With the way Edmonton has struggled this season, it will not be a surprise to see the Blue Jackets overlook the Oilers in this one! Though Edmonton is just 3-3 their last 6 games, 2 of the 3 losses came by a single goal. That said, at +1.5 goals, it is a hot 5-1 run at the betting window for the Oilers in their last 6 games. This is a dangerous spot for an over-priced home favorite and I am going to take advantage with an under-valued road dog that is playing scrappy hockey right now. Free Pick EDMONTON Puck Line +1.5 goals
