After tying the series 1-1, the Columbus Blue Jackets head back to Columbus to host the Boston Bruins at 7 p.m. this Tuesday. The Blue Jackets are currently -130 moneyline favorites over the Bruins in Game 3 of this series, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

As it's always smart to hear what those in the industry have to say before placing a bet, here are some expert predictions for Game 3 of this second-round Stanley Cup Playoffs series.

Bruins vs Blue Jackets Predictions for Game 3

Sports Chat Place

Randy Chambers, of Sports Chat Place, isn't backing either team straight up nor against the spread (ATS), but instead predicting the 5.5-goal total to hit the over in tonight's game. Chambers believes that given how close both overs have come in the first two games, there's going to be an offensive push over the 5.5-goal mark in Game 3.

Cappers Picks

Tyler Berry, of Cappers Picks, is predicting the Blue Jackets to come out on top of the Bruins in Game 3, 3-2. Berry believes after Columbus maintained its offensive presence on the road in Game 2 of this series, the Blue Jackets will prove even stronger at home in Game 3.

Sports Interaction

Payton Matthews, of Sports Interaction, is also projecting a Blue Jackets' win by the same final score as Berry of Cappers Picks, 3-2. Matthews thinks Columbus' 7-1 record at home combined with their recent power-play scoring advantage in this series will prove too much for the Bruins to handle.

Overall, both expert predictions for tonight's winner are backing the Blue Jackets to win 3-2, with Randy Chambers predicting over 5.5 goals scored.
