The Jets are 7-19 in the last 26 meetings in Washington and 4-12 in the last 16 meetings. The home team is 10-1 in the last 11 meetings. The favorite is 11-1 in the last 12 meetings. The over is 21-8-1 in the last 30 meetings in Washington.

The Winnipeg Jets have been one of the better defensive teams in the league over the last few weeks and the Washington Capitals have not been playing to their ability as of late. Six of the last nine meetings between the Jets and Capitals have produced five or less goals. The last three meetings between the Caps and Jets have averaged 4.3 goals per game. This total is quite high. I'll side with the under in this contest.
