The Sabres are 15-49 in their last 64 road games and 2-9 in their last 11 overall. The Capitals are 1-4 in their last 5 home games and 4-9 in their last 13 overall. The under is 5-2-1 in Sabres last 8 overall. The over is 30-11 in Capitals last 41 home games. The Sabres are 5-16 in the last 21 meetings in Washington and 4-14 in the last 18 meetings.

The Buffalo Sabres were supposed to be different this season, and while the season is still young, they've struggled through four games. The Sabres have also been fade material on the road the last few years, and they've had no success against the Capitals over the years. The Washington Capitals are firing out of the gate offensively and a winning stretch is coming like it always does. I have no choice but to lay the juice with the Caps at home.
