The Capitals are 4-1 in their last 5 road games and 4-1 in their last 5 overall. The Flyers are 29-13 in their last 42 home games and 4-1 in their last 5 overall. The under is 3-1-1 in Capitals last 5 road games. The over is 3-1-1 in Flyers last 5 Sunday games. The Capitals are 0-5 in the last 5 meetings. The favorite is 19-7 in the last 26 meetings.

The Washington Capitals are worth a look with the plus money with the way they're playing, but the Flyers are a team I've backed a ton dating back to last season and there's no reason to fade them at home. The Flyers already beat the Capitals this season in a game where they lit them up for seven goals, and they've won each of the last five meetings against the Caps overall. I'll back the Flyers and the cheap price here.
