Ricky's 8* play on Over 5.
Key Angle: It's important to remember that Ricky never makes a bet on any game based on just one angle. In order to make the grade, all his premium picks must meet several important criteria. He doesn't share all his secrets within his analysis, instead he chooses to reveal only the angle that he feels is the most significant. Here in this game the recent history of these two teams is particularly significant.
- The over is 24-9 in Capitals last 33 versus a team with a winning record.
- The over is 5-1 in Capitals last six Conference Quarterfinals games.
- The over is 5-1 in the last six head to head meetings.
Verdict: "We have nothing to lose" said Alex Ovechkin
