Can You Bet on the Columbus Blue Jackets?

Yes, you absolutely can place bets on the Columbus Blue Jackets! In fact, placing NHL bets on the Blue Jackets and other teams in the league is easier than ever now that sports betting is fully legal in Ohio. So, read on to find out some of the different bets you can place on the Blue Jackets as they seek that elusive Stanley Cup triumph.

Columbus Blue Jackets Betting Options

When backing the Columbus Blue Jackets, you have lots of betting options to choose from. The easiest bet is a straight-up moneyline, where your job is to simply select which team you think will win out on the ice.

Puck line betting is also popular in the NHL, as it’s a form of handicap betting that evens things out somewhat. 

Additionally, you can back the Blue Jackets in parlay bets, teasers, totals, props, and even futures bets. A futures bet, for instance, is ideal if you think this year will be the year in which the Blue Jackets finally get their hands on a Stanley Cup. No matter how you go about it, backing the Columbus Blue Jackets has never been easier. But what about the Blue Jackets' odds? 

Columbus Blue Jackets Odds

Before placing an NHL bet, you need to understand the odds and how to bet on the Columbus Blue Jackets. The most important thing to remember is that the favorite is always given negative odds, while the underdog is always given positive odds. So, an NHL moneyline bet involving the Blue Jackets might look something like this: 

Columbus Blue Jackets (-140) vs. Buffalo Sabres (+135)

In this example, we can see that the Blue Jackets are the favorites due to their negative odds. The odds given show that you would need to bet $140 on the Blue Jackets to return a $100 profit, while a $100 bet on the Sabres would return $135 in profit.

 While a simple example, this gives you an idea of how NHL odds are represented and will help you as you plan your Columbus Blue Jackets bets this season.
