There is a historically profitable betting algorithm developed by the Action Network that has a substantial betting edge for this contest between the Lightning and Blue Jackets.

It’s the biggest betting edge in the hockey market on Friday.

The algorithm targets the total, and factors in injuries, matchups, rest, rotations, travel and more.

This provides about a 7% edge in betting value, which indicates the pick has implied odds that are more than 7% higher than the odds available to you in the markets.

Essentially, the line is currently at more than a 7% discount across the market.

Over the long run, if you only bet on lines with at least a 7% betting edge, you’re assured to make a profit. In the short term, of course, variance is a constraint.
