After topping the Boston Bruins in Game 3, the Columbus Blue Jackets are now up 2-1 in this second-round series of the 2019 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs. The Blue Jackets look to extend their series lead at home in Game 4 on Thursday night, and Columbus is favored at -130 on the moneyline, 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 4 of this series.

Bruins vs Blue Jackets Predictions

Bettors Insider

Craig Dietel, of Bettors Insider, thinks that Bruins' forward Brad Marchand added to Columbus' motivation with his sucker punch to Scott Harrington's head in Game 3. Dietel expects to see some fists flying and a Columbus victory Thursday night as well, backing the Blue Jackets straight up.

Sports Chat Place

Randy Chambers, of Sports Chat Place, notes how the Bruins are 4-1 straight up in their last five games as underdogs. However, the Blue Jackets have been the most consistent team in the playoffs, and they've won six of their last seven home games as the favorites. Chambers is riding the hot hand and taking Columbus straight up.

The Game Haus Sports

Max Rayman, of The Game Haus Sports, likes the goaltending edge that Sergei Bobrovsky brings to the Blue Jackets. Rayman believes Bobrovsky's .937 save percentage this postseason is key, predicting the Blue Jackets to win straight up in this one.

All three experts highlighted above are predicting the Blue Jackets to win Game 4 straight up.
