Caps Have Beaten the Bruins Six Straight Times

Barry Trotz and the Capitals may not be seeing the same kind of success they did in the early going last season but they are still right in the hunt at 31 points after 24 games played. They will take on an overachieving Bruins team tonight that also sits at 31 points.

SHARK BITES
  • The Bruins are 0-6 in their last 6 games against the Capitals.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 5 of the Capitals' last 6 games against the Bruins.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 5 of the Bruins' last 6 games on the road.

Boston may be on a three-game winning streak but the Bruins haven’t beaten Washington since March of 2014 when they took down the Red Army at the nation’s capital. If you dig into the B’s winning streak a little, you’ll see that two of their three wins came after 60 minutes and that three of their last four games went to overtime.

That’s a bit of an odd trend and if you’re looking for some extra value tonight, you may want to take a look at the draw option on the three-way moneyline as it was paying +255 at the time of writing.

The Caps are a tough fade against a team they’ve dominated but goal scoring has not been coming easily for them. Washington has averaged just 1.8 goals in its last five games and if both Tuukka Rask and Braden Holtby get the start tonight, you may want to consider an UNDER bet.
