Money Line: -103 Washington
5-Unit Play. #053. Take Washington -105 over New York Islanders (Friday, March 1 at 7:05 p.m.)
As per your selection on the Washington Capitals, I have nothing against the state of NY or the Islanders as a franchise, but after last night's emotional win over a completely unprepared Toronto team, we believe they will suffer the ill effects of a major let down tonight. And unfortunately, that let down is going to happen against the defending cup champions and a very good Washington Capitals team. Look, The Caps are rolling right now, winners of two straight while scoring 13 goals in the process and four of their last 5 games. They have had a few days off before this game to rest and get ready for this key Metro division clash and we believe they will be ready to go and blitz the Islanders right from puck drop. We like the fact that the Caps lost 2-0 to the Islanders back on Jan 18th. This just gives them extra motivation to return the favor and collect a crucial two points in the race for the playoffs. Take Washington and enjoy a nice bounce-back winner.
