Date & TimeThursday February 7, 2019, 7:00 PM (EST)
LocationCapital One ArenaWashington, D.C.

The Capitals all set to host the Avs in this game in Washington on Thursday night.

The Capitals coming into this after a good win against Vancouver. While the Colorado Avalanche have lost 4 games straight.

The Total for this game is set at 6.5 and for good reason. The last 7 games for the Avs sees them 5-2 to the over and the Washington Capitals go 4-3 to the over from their last 7.

Head to Head sees these teams going 3-2 to the over. I see this game turning into a slug fest, producing multiple goals for both teams.

When the total is set at 6.5, we really need to have both teams firing, if we can just get 3 goals each… we will get the win. Because of the guaranteed goal from the overtime or shoot out.

I think that’ll be the case here. I’m backing each team to score at least 3.

The score should go over the total

Why ? well if look at the allowed goals here for both teams. Over their last 10 games, we can see that the Washington capitals have allowed a whopping 41 goals and the Av’s have allowed 45 goals.

So that’s 4.1 and 4.5 goals a game allowed.

That’s a huge amount of allowed goals, and both clubs here a very capable of scoring 3 each.

considering everything…..

Im taking the over in this one.
