The Bruins are 1-4 in their last 5 road games and 4-0 in their last 4 overall. The Capitals are 2-5 in their last 7 Saturday games and 5-12 in their last 17 games playing on 1 days rest. The under is 7-2 in Bruins last 9 overall. The over is 5-1 in Capitals last 6 overall. The Bruins are 7-19 in the last 26 meetings in Washington and 15-36 in the last 51 meetings.

The Boston Bruins are on a roll right now and their defensive effort is strong out of the gate. However, the Washington Capitals continue to get disrespected by oddsmakers with these lines and it's very tough to turn them down at plus money prices. We hit twice on the Caps in the underdog role with wins over the Islanders. The Capitals have also had the upper hand over the years against the Bruins. I'm going to keep taking these plus money prices with the Capitals.
