Hurricanes vs. Capitals Free Pick
The road team is 9-4 in the last 13 meetings between the Hurricanes and Capitals, who meet tonight at 7:00PM ET.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Capitals are -210 money line favorites over the Hurricanes, who have odds of +180 to pull off the upset. The total, meanwhile, is sitting at 5.5 goals.
The Caps face a desperate Carolina team that opened up with three straight losses but finally won a game on Friday with a 5-3 win over Detroit. The top line of Eric Staal, Kris Versteeg and rookie Brock McGlinn combined for three goals and five assists.
Washington should be favored, but not by nearly -200. The Hurricanes are a good value as they have plenty of firepower against a team that's not always focused at home.
