EXPERT: Matt Fargo

EVALUATION: Win (1000)


This is a play on the WASHINGTON CAPITALS for our NHL Thursday Breakaway. Washington had a seven-game winning streak snapped with a loss at Pittsburgh on Tuesday but it remains in first place in the Metropolitan Division by two points over the Islanders. The Capitals are one of just seven teams in the NHL that possess at least 20 road wins and going back, Washington is 19-7 against the money line in road games after a division game over the last two seasons. Philadelphia remains in the playoff picture as it is five points behind Montreal and Columbus which possess eighth and ninth place in the Eastern Conference. The Flyers have won two straight games but are in a tough spot here as they are 9-23 against the money line against teams averaging three or more gpg this season. Here, we play against home underdogs against the money line in the second half of the season that are allowing three or more gpg, after allowing two goals or less in two straight games. This situation is 125-46 (73.1 percent) since 1996. Also, we play on road favorites against the money line in the second half of the season off a loss by two goals or more to a division rival, with a winning record. This situation is 46-19 (70.8 percent) over the last five seasons. 10* (3) Washington Capitals
