Washington Capitals vs Edmonton Oilers prediction

The Edmonton Oilers are easily the better, more balanced team, and they’re at home, where they’re 20-8-2 on the season. The Oilers should be favored over a Capitals team that’s had issues putting things together all season. With that said, the Capitals have played their best hockey over the last few weeks, and they are 6-3-1 in their last 10 games. The Capitals have won5 of their last 8 games in the underdog role. Yes, the Oilers should be favored and they probably win this game. However, the value is with the Caps and a chance to make two times your money. I’ll take a shot with the road dog.
