(31) Washington vs. Carolina (32)
PICK: sportsinteraction @ CAR (-120)
DATE: April 15, 2019 - 7:00 PM
STAR RATING: 10.0
EXPERT: Al McMordie
EVALUATION: Win (1000)
At 7:00 pm, our selection is on the Carolina Hurricanes over the Washington Capitals. The Hurricanes' task is straightforward: win Games 3 + 4 to level this series at two games apiece. It's true that the Caps have won each of the last five meetings here in Raleigh. But all five defeats were narrow, and were decided by a single goal, with three of the five ending in overtime or a shoot-out. Additionally, Carolina out-shot Washington in four of those five games. So there are plenty of reasons to like the home team tonight in what clearly is a must-win for the 'Canes. For technical support, consider that the Caps are a poor 6-13 in their last 19 playoff games, priced as an underdog of +150 or less, while Carolina cashed 67% at home this season off back to back losses. Take Carolina. 10* play. As always, good luck...Al McMordie.
