Money Line: 118.00 Washington (Home)
Play On: Washington +118 (5*)
There’s a lot of NHL bettors who are banking on Boston to even this series up after suffering a 3-2 overtime loss in Game 1 on Saturday. I’m going the opposite way. Yes, the Capitals lost their #1 goaltender Vitek Vanecek to a lower body injury. However, the Caps have a very capable backup in veteran Craig Anderson who came in and stopped 21 of 22 Boston shots on goal to earn the win. As a matter of fact, During his last 4 appearances, Anderson has stopped 80 of 85 shots on goal for an excellent .941 save percentage. Washington has gone 12-5 in its last 17 and 31-13 during their previous 34 against the money line. Washington has gone highly profitable 7-3 in their last 10 games as a money line underdog of +135 or less this season. Bet on Washington for a 5* money line wager.
