Blue Jackets vs. Capitals Pick

NHL Predictions: Can Blue Jackets record upset at Capitals? 2/9/18

Are the Columbus Blue Jackets a good play for bettors tonight when they face the host Washington Capitals at 7PM ET?\

Who Oddsmakers Like: Washington. According to oddsmakers at YouWager, the Capitals are a -135 favorite to win on the moneyline. The Blue Jackets are a +115 underdog, while the total is set at 5.5 goals. Washington opened as a -145 fave before the line dropped some.

Bet Tonight's NHL Action

Who the Public Likes: Washington. As of Friday afternoon, 79 percent of public bets are coming in on the Capitals to win on the moneyline. Online wagers also favor the over with 60 percent of bets on that side.

Who We Like: The Capitals have won the first two meetings this season and have won five in a row in the series. Washington is 7-3 in the last 10 meetings and the over-under has gone 3-3-4. Columbus is on a four-game losing skid and have dropped seven of its last 10. The under has gone 7-3. The Capitals ended a two-game losing streak with a 3-2 win at the Blue Jackets three days ago. Washington is 4-6 in its last 10 contests, while the over has gone 6-4.

Washington hasn't been infallible in recent weeks and the Blue Jackets will be looking for some revenge here. Columbus goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky is a top-notch goalie when focused and on his game, which I expect him to be tonight. Take the underdogs on the road.
