Columbus vs. Florida: NHL match prediction (March 12, 2021)
Columbus Blue Jackets
On March 12, "Columbus" will try to take revenge on "Florida". Our experts have prepared a prediction for this meeting, where you can find out the best choice to bet.
Columbus Blue Jackets
"Columbus" once again showed not the best performance at home, losing to "Florida" (2:4). The implementation of chances in the attack failed, which were quite a lot. This defeat was the fourth in five games, before that the "Blue Jacket" had failed to cope with "Nashville" (2:4), and also had failed to defeat "Chicago" twice (5:6 and 0:2).
"Jackets" continue to lose points in almost every fight. In nine matches, they managed to win only two victories over the weakest teams in the Central Division, "Dallas" (3:2) and "Detroit" (4:1).
Upcoming Predictions for Hockey
"Florida" is consistently gaining points, in six games they failed to earn points only once - losing to "Carolina" (2:4) due to weak defensive play, and especially because of goaltender Driedger, who reflected only 22 shots out of 26. Still, it feels like Bobrovsky acts much more reliably. In the following match with "Columbus", head coach Joel Quenneville returned the Russian goalkeeper to the goal, thanks in part to whom they managed to win the game with a score of 4:2.
The "Panthers" continue to be in the Top-3 in the Central Division, just two points behind the first position. It is worth noting that the defense of "Panthers" sometimes fails, but their excellent performance compensates for this shortcoming.
- "Columbus" prevailed in two out of nine games.
- "Florida" lost one match out of four on the road.
Bookmakers believe that absolutely equal teams will be playing in this match, but nevertheless, in our opinion, "Florida Panthers" look much more confident, and even despite the fact that the team will have to play away, they have more chances of winning. "Columbus" has been on a slump for a long time, so it's safer to bet on the "Panthers".
Our prediction is a victory for "Florida" with a handicap (-1.5) for 2.79 on 1xbet.
