The Washington Capitals and the Toronto Maple Leafs meet in NHL action from Scotiabank Arena on Sunday. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.


Toronto is listed as a -140 home favorite while Washington is a +120 road underdog with the total for this game set at 6 goals.


For Washington, Tom Wilson and Nic Dowd remain out until early February with respective lower body injuries while John Carlson remains out indefinitely. For Toronto, Matt Murray is questionable for this game with an ankle injury and Auston Matthews will be out until mid February with a knee injury.

Matchup History

Washington’s 5-2 win over Toronto back on December 17th, 2022, snapped Toronto’s four-game head-to-head win streak against the Capitals.


Washington is 0-6 in their last 6 games following a win and 0-4 in their last 4 games played on 2 days rest while the over is 6-1-1 in their last 8 games when their opponent scores 2 goals or less in the previous game. Toronto is 50-18 in their last 68 home games and 24-6 in their last 30 games against the Metropolitan division while the over is 6-1-3 in their last 10 Sunday games.


I’m sticking with the over here. I think Toronto offensively looked lost without Auston Matthews, but Washington hasn’t been playing all that sharp either. All in all, I think this could easily get into the 7-8 or even 9 goal range. Give me the over here.
