Pick Details

(9) Washington vs. Minnesota (10)

PICK: williamhill @ WAS (-130)

DATE: March 1, 2020 - 8:00 PM



EXPERT: Al McMordie

EVALUATION: Win (1000)


At 8:05 pm, our selection is on the Washington Capitals over the Minnesota Wild.  It's a short road trip (just two games) but still the Caps would like to come out of it at .500 and that means they must win tonight in Minneapolis.  DC lost badly in Winnipeg two nights ago, getting shut out by the Jets, 3-0, despite out-shooting the home team 34-31.  Minnesota's last game also resulted in a shutout, but it was the Wild that did the blanking in a 5-0 beat-down on the road Friday night.  That makes the cumulative total over the Wild's last three games a lopsided 17-5.  But those three were against the Red Wings and Blue Jackets (twice), so things figure to get a lot tougher for them tonight against a Caps team which is in a dogfight now for the Metropolitan Division title.  And there aren't many series that have been as lopsided as this one has over the past five years.  The Capitals are 8-1 in the last nine meetings with the Wild going back to March of 2015, and also 5-0 in the last five meetings in Minneapolis.  Finally, Minnesota is 1-5 in its last six games vs. teams with a win % above .600.  Take Washington.  10* play.  As always, good luck...Al McMordie.
