The Bruins are 1-5 in their last 6 road games and 4-1 in their last 5 overall. The Capitals are 4-1 in their last 5 home games and 4-1 in their last 5 overall. The under is 7-3 in Bruins last 10 overall. The over is 6-1 in Capitals last 7 overall. The Bruins are 7-20 in the last 27 meetings in Washington and 15-37 in the last 52 meetings.

We are once again getting the Washington Capitals and plus money, something we've taken full advantage of multiple times this season. Sure, the Bruins are a really solid team and have a clear edge on the defensive side, but I'm not turning down plus money with the Capitals. It should also be mentioned that the Caps have won eight of the last 10 meetings against the Bruins, which includes an overtime win a couple days ago. Give me the underdog Capitals for the third straight game.
