Columbus vs Arizona: prediction for the NHL fixture
Columbus Blue Jackets
The Columbus Blue Jackets played 8 preseason games and look absolutely ready to take on the new NHL season. Despite winning only 4 of their preseason matches, the Blue Jackets showed good performance and often were close to winning. For instance, Columbus lost to Pittsburgh and Buffalo outside regulation (3:4 OT and 4:5 B). In the return game against the Sabres, the Blue Jackets defeated their opponent with a score of 5:3. Forward Voracek scored a goal and gave an assist.
The Arizona Coyotes demonstrated fantastic form in the preseason. They won all of their games except one. Arizona lost to Dallas; goaltender Korenar had a terrible game and conceded six goals. In all of their other fixtures, the Coyotes won in regulation. In particular, it is worth mentioning the games against Vegas (3:1) and Los Angeles (4:1 and 2:1).
In 4 head-to-head games, the teams scored in each period.
Columbus opened the scoring in 3 head-to-head games out of 4.
Arizona are not afraid to play away from home. They won three away matches in the preseason. The Coyotes are currently in excellent shape and we believe that they will not lose in regulation.
Our prediction - Arizona to not lose

The teams do not always score a large number of goals in head-to-head games. Moreover, Arizona play very confidently on the defensive. We suggest betting on the total under in this fixture.
Second wager - total under 5.5 goals
