The Capitals are 9-3 in their last 12 road games and 16-5 in their last 21 overall. The Devils are 17-35 in their last 52 home games and 1-4 in their last 5 overall. The over is 4-1-1 in Capitals last 6 road games. The under is 9-3 in Devils last 12 overall. The Capitals are 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in New Jersey and 25-5 in the last 30 meetings. The favorite is 38-13 in the last 51 meetings.

The Washington Capitals continue to pile up the victories with an offense that's been on fire as of late, and they've done nothing but cash tickets this season in the favorite role. The New Jersey Devils are on the struggle bus right now and they're running into a Capitals team they've lost to seven times this season. Some of these meetings have been competitive but the Capitals are simply the better team with a clear edge on the offensive side. You can argue this price should be steeper. Give me the Caps for another victory.
