Flames vs. Capitals Pick

NHL Predictions: Calgary Flames vs. Washington Capitals 11/20/17

Will the Washington Capitals be able to fend off the Calgary Flames when the two teams meet up tonight at 7PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Washington is the favorite at home, as the Capitals are getting odds of -140 to prevail, while the Flames are listed with a money line of +120 to win. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 5.5 goals. Tonight’s game takes place from the Capital One Arena in Washington, D.C.

Calgary is coming off a 5-4 OT win at Philadelphia on Saturday for its third win in four games. The Flames are 11-8 overall and 5-3 on the road. Calgary is putting up 2.95 goals per game this season while allowing 3.26 goals per contest. Johnny Gaudreau has put up nine goals and 20 assists to lead the Flames while Sean Monahan has 11 goals and nine assists. Mike Smith is 10-6 in net this season with a 2.71 GAA and a .919 save percentage.

Washington is coming off a 3-1 win at home over Minnesota on Saturday to snap a two-game losing streak. The Capitals are 11-9-1 on the season and 6-3 at home. The Capitals are putting up 2.81 goals per game while allowing 3.14 per contest. Alex Ovechkin has 13 goals and seven assists this year for the Capitals while Evgeny Kuznetsov has five goals and 18 assists. Braden Holtby is 11-4 on the season in net with a 2.56 GAA and a .921 save percentage.

Bet on Flames vs. Capitals

Calgary won the first meeting this season at home, 2-1, back on Oct. 29. However, the Flames are just 6-13-2 in their last 21 meetings with the Capitals and 3-7-1 in their last 11 trips to Washington. The Capitals have been able to go 41-14 in their last 55 games when playing on 1 day of rest and they are also 19-7 in their last 26 Monday games. The public betting for tonight’s game is heavily with the Capitals and I agree with them on that.
