Bet NHL Action For Saturday, March 3, 2018

LINE MOVEMENT

Washington opened as a -145 favorite to win before the line tightened, while the total has remained at 6 goals. The Capitals can now be found at various books anywhere from a -114 to a -125 favoirite, while the total is at 6 almost everywhere although it can be spotted at 5.5.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of Saturday afternoon, 52 percent of public bets are coming in on the Capitals. Online wager also shows that 60 percent of bets are being placed on the over.

INJURY TO WATCH

Toronto star center Auston Matthews is out until mid-March with a shoulder injury. Washington does not have anyone on its injury report.

BETTING STRATEGY

The Maple Leafs have lost two in a row and don't have the same swagger as when Matthews was healthy. Washington has been up and down lately as it is only 4-6 in its last 10 games, but many of the losses have come on the road and the Capitals have won two in a row at home. Washington is 22-9-2-0 at home this season, while Toronto is 17-12-3-2 on the road. The Capitals are also 7-3 in the last 10 head-to-head meetings, while the over-under has gone 5-5. I say take Alexander Ovechkin and the hosts tonight as the line is plenty small enough to stomach for a team as skilled as Washington.
