Taking the Red Wings for 5* here...
Detroit outplayed the Jackets last game pretty significantly but ended up losing. They generated 63% of expected goals last game compared to 37% for Columbus. The Red Wings don't seem to be as bad as they were last season, already grabbing a win against the Hurricanes. I don't think this line should be higher than it was last game considering Detroit played the better game. I watched the game and at least two of the Jackets' goals were off lucky bounces.
This line is way too high considering the Jackets are a mediocre team and the Red Wings were competitive last game.
