Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Washington Capitals, 12:30PM ET (View Matchup)

The road team has won 7 of the last 9 games in this series, as has the underdog. Pittsburgh is 4-1 in its last 5 games as an underdog and 11-5 in their last 6 road games. My pick is with the Penguins as they are the hotter team as of now and it its surprising to see them as such a big underdog. I like the Penguins to pull off the upset in a gritty road victory.
