Preview

The Washington Capitals continue on the road and will visit the Edmonton Oilers on Thursday night at the Rogers Place. These teams met twice last season where each one took the win at home and both were high scoring games.

 

Edmonton Oilers

Edmonton get here with a 7-3 record overall and are 4-3 at home ranking 2nd in the Pacific Division. They beat the Predators 7-4 in their last game at home where Evander Kane had a hat trick and Connor McDavid added two goals and two assists. Leon Draisaitl finished with a goal and four assists, and Derek Ryan also scored for the Oilers.

Connor McDavid leads the Oilers with 11 goals, 22 points and 11 assists while Leon Draisaitl has 16 assists over the last 10 games for Edmonton.

In their last 10 games the Oilers are 7-3, averaging 4.1 goals, 6.1 assists, 3.7 penalties and nine penalty minutes while giving up 3.2 goals per game with a .935 save percentage.

Washington Capitals

The Capitals have lost 3 of their last 4 games and are 2-3-1 with a 5-4-2 record overall ranking 6th in the Metropolitan division. Their last 2 losses have come in overtime and the last one was against the Golden Knights at home 3-2 where Marcus Johansson and Trevor van Riemsdyk scored for Washington. Charlie Lindgren stopped 28 of 31 shots..

Alex Ovechkin leads the team and has five goals, nine points and four assists while Dylan Strome is leading in assists with 7 for Washington.

In their last 10 games the Capitals are 5-5, averaging 3 goals, 4.5 assists, 3.1 penalties and seven penalty minutes while giving up 2.6 goals per game.

 

BETTING TRENDS

Washington are 7-1 SU in their last 8 games.

Washington are 3-7 SU in their last 10 games against Edmonton.

The total has gone OVER in 5 of Washington's last 6 games on the road.

Washington are 1-5 SU in their last 6 games when playing on the road against Edmonton.

Edmonton are 5-0 SU in their last 5 games.

The total has gone OVER in 5 of Edmonton's last 6 games against Washington.

Edmonton are 13-7 SU in their last 20 games at home.

 

Prediction

The Oilers have been great so far this season and have won 5 games in a row scoring an average of 5 goals per game but they have allowed 3 or more goals in 3 of the last 5 games as well. The Capitals are on a roll winning 4 straight games and are on fire offensively scoring an average of 5 goals per game in their last wins too. With both teams playing great offense and the over cashing in 5 of the last 6 head to head games between these 2 so I expect a high scoring game. Take the over.
