The Washington Capitals and the Vegas Golden Knights meet in NHL action from the T-Mobile Arena on Saturday. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.
Both Washington and Vegas are at coin flip -110 odds on the ML in this game with a total set at 6 goals.
Nic Dowd remains out indefinitely with a lower body injury and John Carlson is also out indefinitely for Washington with a face injury. Vegas has William Carrier out indefinitely with an upper body injury while Brett Howden, Zach Whitecloud and Danill Miromanov are all out for the foreseeable future with lower body injuries.
The Vegas Golden Knights have won the last four meetings between these two teams after a 3-2 OT win in the first meeting between the two back on November 1st, 2022.
Washington is 9-1 in their last 10 road games and 5-2 in their last 7 games against the Pacific division while the under is 4-0-1 in their last 5 games against the Western Conference. Vegas is 1-4 in their last 5 games overall and 14-6 in their last 20 games against the Eastern Conference while the under is 3-1-1 in their last 5 games overall.
I’m looking at the under in this game. Both teams have had injuries finding the back of the net consistently as of late, and I think both sides don’t necessarily get the credit they deserve for having solid defense and great goaltending as well. I think this has all the makings of a 3-2 game, so give me the under here.
