The Metro Division meets the Central Division this evening as the Washington Capitals duke it out with the Winnipeg Jets at Bell MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The Caps enter this game off a 5-2 road win over the Wild, while the Jets are off a 5-2 home win over the Devils. These teams split the two meetings last year.

Orlov/ Copley Lead Caps Over The Wild

Many times you will see a team that struggled at home respond with the win once they take to the road. The Caps went into their road game with Minnesota on Tuesday night off of BB home losses against Columbus and Arizona, but they were able to shake it off with a nice 5-2 win over the Wild. The Caps are now in 4th place in the Metro Division, but it has not been a good start for them as they are just 8-9 overall. Washington has been inconsistent in the early going. Leading their attack against the Wild was Dmitry Orlov, who scored his first two goals of the year in the win. Tom Wilson (1st of year), Andre Burakovsky (2nd), and T.J. Oshie (9th) also scored in the win.

Snatching up the win was Pheonix Copley, who stopped 26 of the 28 shots that he faced to improve to 3-2 with a 2.91 GAA on the year. Getting the nod for the Capitals in this one will be Braden Holtby, and he has gone 5-7 with a 3.24 GAA and a .900 save percentage on the year, including 1-3 with a 4.26 GAA and a .878 save percentage on the road. In his career, he has gone 10-5 with a 2.36 GAA against the Jets. The Capitals enter this game ranked 6th in the league in scoring at 3.41 gpg and 25th in goals allowed at 3.35 gpg.

Jets Grab Easy Win Against Struggling Devils

The Winnipeg Jets began their season at 3-3, but have been far more consistent since as they have won seven of their last 10 games. The Jets are a team that will challenge for the right to go to the Stanley Cup Finals and they are starting to play like that team. Winnipeg currently sits in 3rd place in the Central but they are still six points out of first. It may be hard to catch the preds this year, but the Jets did finish 2nd in the Division last year and still made it to the Western Conference Finals. They enter this contest off a rather easy 5-2 home win over the struggling Devils. Winnipeg had a 2-0 lead just 3:31 into the game and never looked back. Jack Roslovic (1st), Mark Scheifele (8th & 9th), Nikolaj Ehlers (4th) and Mathieu Perreault (4th) all scored in the win.   

Grabbing the win waa Connor Hellebuyck, who stopped 34 of the 36 shots that he faced to move to 7-6 with a 2.86 GAA and a .912 save percentage on the year, including 5-3 with a 2.88 GAA and a .906 save percentage here at home. In his career, he has gone 2-2 with a 2.40 GAA against the Capitals. Winnipeg enters this contest ranked 13th in the league in scoring at 3.19 gpg and 6th in goals allowed, giving up 2.63 gpg.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

I cannot back the inconsistent Capitals in this one, especially since they will be playing on no rest, while the Jets are a fresh team. The Caps have not looked like the defending champs this year, while the Jets have won seven of their last ten games. The Jets will keep it rolling against a tired Washington team in this one, and the clincher is the fact that the home team is 8-1 the last eight games in this series.

Prediction: Winnipeg

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

I will look for this one to go Under the total. Braden Holtby has struggled on the road this year, but the Jets have been a rather average offensive squad so far. The Jets have excelled in the crease this year as they are 6th in the league in goals allowed and a tired Washington offense will not do much to change that. The Under is 6-1 in Jets last seven vs. Metropolitan and 10-3-1 in the previous 14 meetings between these teams here in Winnipeg.

Prediction: Under

Half-Time Side Pick
Rating:

The Caps are playing on no rest against a rested team. this is not a good spot for them, especially with it being against the Winnipeg Jets, who have won seven of their last 10 games. Take Winnipeg early on in this one.

Prediction: Winnipeg -151 (First Period)

Half-Time Total Bet
Rating:

I like the Under for the game, but we should see at least two goals in the first. Washington’s first periods on the road have put up 2.43 gpg, while Winnipeg’s home games have averaged 2.10 gpg in the first this year.

Prediction: Over 1.5 (First Period)
