The Buffalo Sabres and the Washington Capitals meet in NHL action from the Capital One Arena on Wednesday night. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.
Washington is listed as a -130 home favorite while the Sabres are +110 road underdogs. The total is set at 6 goals.
For Buffalo, Eric Comrie and Mattias Samuelsson are both out indefinitely while Washington has Sonny Milano still listed as questionable and John Carlson remains out with a face injury.
Buffalo’s 7-4 win back on February 28th, 2023, made it back-to-back wins for the Sabres in this head-to-head matchup.
Buffalo is 4-1 in their last 5 games against a team with a losing record and 1-4 in their last 5 games overall while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 Wednesday games. Washington is 0-4 in their last 4 games played on no rest and 1-6 in their last 7 home games while the under is 7-1-2 in their last 10 games played on no rest.
I’m rolling with Buffalo here. The Caps continue to struggle on no rest and the Buffalo Sabres have played their better basketball on the road for much of the season. I don’t see any reason to deviate from either of those runs here, especially when we’re getting plus money with the Sabres to begin with. Give me Buffalo in this one.
