Today's hockey betting free pick from Gambling911.com is on Washington, playing Columbus today. When using the money line in all games, Washington's record is 18  Wins and 2  Losses  this season.

The Columbus Blue Jackets' six-game road trip got off to a great start out west, but they've hit a rough patch while working their way back east

Their finale should be their toughest test yet.

Columbus will close its longest road trip of the season against the Washington Capitals, who will be looking to win 10 straight at home for the first time in nearly nine years.

The Blue Jackets (18-18-4) were stumbling along at 11-13-3 through the first two months of the season, but have gone 7-5-1 since Dec. 11 as they attempt to increase their chances of reaching the playoffs for the first time in franchise history.

The Capitals are 2-0-0 with a tie at home against Columbus. The teams last met in Washington on Oct. 5, 2005, when Ovechkin scored twice in a 3-2 win.

Columbus had odds of +7500 to win the 2009 Stanley Cup while Washington had odds of +1000 at Super Book, which was offering a free 10 percent cash signup bonus.
