Jets vs Capitals Betting Prediction 

Washington comes into this game after winning four of their last five games and they just had a great win over a very good Carolina team. The Capitals are right in the middle of the race for a Wild Card spot, so every game is important for them. Winnipeg has dropped two games in a row to the Devils and Islanders, which were pretty bad losses. The Jets are on a back to back after losing 6-3 on Saturday afternoon and I really don’t like how they have played in their last two games. Washington plays their best hockey at home and I think they are the play here.
