NHL Betting Tips For Saturday, March 5

Jon and Derek

We went 0-1 last night as the Capitals lost at home to the Rangers.

It’s been a rollercoaster week. 3-0 Saturday, 0-2 Sunday, 2-0 Monday, 2-1 Tuesday (missed a 3-0 night by a tenth of a second), then 0-1 Wednesday and Friday sandwiched around a 2-2 Thursday.

It adds up to 9-7 over the past 7 days, but it feels like we’re treading water a bit right now. Hopefully we’ll get back on track with a pair of winners tonight.

Odds below are at the time we made the pick. Be sure to check out our live odds page for updated odds on today’s games.

Game: Capitals @ Bruins
Time: 7:00PM ET
Pick: Capitals +115 (BetOnline)

People are a bit down on the Capitals right now who haven’t looked like the same team of late, including a loss last night at home to the Rangers. But we don’t see how they should be an underdog to the Bruins, even in Boston. Washington is 21-7 on the road while the Bruins have a losing record at home. The Caps have won the last 5 meetings between the teams, and 6 of the last 8 in Boston. Even with Holtby expected to sit this one out, we give Washington at least a 50% chance of winning tonight, making the +115 look generous.
