Both teams have gotten a win in the regular-season series so far, and NHL bet predictions have the Sabres taking the final game in what should be another lower-scoring meeting yet again.

Sabres vs Blue Jackets Over/Under Pick: Under 6 ½ Goals (Ev)

The Sabres and Blue Jackets combined for just five goals in their last meeting, and the two should have a lower-scoring game once again.

Buffalo and Columbus each rank in the bottom half of the NHL in scoring, averaging under three goals a game at 2.93 and 2.96 goals, respectively. Although the Sabres have been able to find some scoring recently, averaging 3.2 goals in their last five, it has also been inconsistent, scoring seven goals one game and getting shut out the next.

Columbus also put up seven goals in its last outing, but it came against the league’s third-worst defense. Prior to that, it was averaging 2.2 goals a game in its last five. The Blue Jackets should likely revert back to those scoring tendencies as they face another tough defense in Buffalo, which has given up 2.4 goals a game in its last five and posted a shutout. Sabres starting goalie Ukko-Pekka Luukkononen has also been performing well with a .922 save percentage in February.

With Buffalo’s inconsistencies and the Blue Jackets’ offensive struggles, the under should be a solid NHL bet between these two to finish out the series.

Sabres vs Blue Jackets Player Prop Pick: Boone Jenner Anytime Goal Scorer (+155)

Though they are one of the lower-scoring teams in the NHL, Jenner leads the Blue Jackets with 18 goals and he has been more consistent in his production through the month of February. Jenner has lit the lamp in four of his last five games, scoring five goals in that time.

Jenner has also been reliable at home, scoring 10 goals in 18 games, and with the Blue Jackets needing to keep it close with Buffalo, expect them to look to him once more to do so.
