The Washington Capitals and Florida Panthers meet Tuesday in NHL action at the FLA Live Arena. The Washington Capitals have lost 6 of their last 8 games. The Florida Panthers have split their last 10 games.

Alex Ovechkin leads Washington with 8 goals, Evgeny Kuznetsov has 11 assists and John Carlson has 33 shots on goal.

The Capitals are 2-8 in their last 10 road games and 2-6 in their last 8 overall. The Panthers are 52-15 in their last 67 home games and 0-5 in their last 5 Tuesday games. The under is 7-2-1 in Capitals last 10 overall. The under is 4-1 in Panthers last 5 home games. The Capitals are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings in Florida and 1-4 in the last 5 meetings. The favorite is 41-19 in the last 60 meetings. The home team is 7-3 in the last 10 meetings.

The Florida Panthers have been a buzz saw at home dating back to last season, and they should be favored. However, the Panthers have also been hit or miss up to this point, and it’s hard for me to trust them with massive juice. The Panthers don’t have that same pep in their step that they had a year ago. At least not yet. Yes, the Washington Capitals have their issues as well, but we’re getting more than 1.5 times our money here. Give me the Caps and the potential big payout.
