Seeing the red hot Washington Capitals as a juicy +130 underdog is definitely enticing. They come into Tuesday’s matchup winning 9 of their last 10 games and currently ride a 3-game winning streak in games played straight after the Christmas break. This game would have undoubtedly generated a lot more league-wide attention if Ovechkin was still looking to pass Gordie Howe on the goal-scoring list with his 802nd goal… but, he accomplished that incredible feat on Friday night at home vs. the Winnipeg Jets. Speaking of Ovi’s greatness, he’s absolutely dominated the Rangers in his career and has scored 12 goals over his last 16 games against the “Broadway Blueshirts”. It should be a relatively close tilt between these two rivals, but we expect Ovechkin’s dominance to continue and the Capitals to stay scorching hot. We will be jumping on the +130 underdogs at BetUS.
Prediction: Washington Capitals (+130)
