Vancouver Canucks vs Washington Capitals Betting Odds
The odds in this game are as close as they can be with 140 for Canucks win and 144 for the Capitals. The draw is at 342.
The goal line is at 5.5 goals with -143 for over and 115 for under.
Both teams are playing very well lately but have a long way to go to secure a playoff berth yet. Things are more difficult for Vancouver who is not in the playoff picture but is only three points away from the spot that leads there.
Vancouver has won the last two games this season including a 4-2 win DC this January and are favourites in this one even more since the Capitals are finishing a three-game road trip in western Canada. However, the best option is to place a bet on under 5.5 goals since both teams are defensively oriented and usually there are not many goals in their matchups.
