In a game from NHL, we will see Boston Bruins at Washington Capitals.

Betting Prediction:

When these two teams met earlier in the preseason, Boston won both games by 2:1 and 5:2. The Washington Capitals are the favorites to win this game, according to the bookies, however, I expect the Bruins to give them a fight. It should be an interesting matchup against two similar teams at the beginning of the season.

The Bruins didn’t play very well on the road last season and they were very inconsistent. If they are to be competitive in this one, they will have to count on Marchand and Pastrnak who are the leading scorers of this team and they also have the most assists.

The Capitals on the other side will be solely relying on the living legend Alexander Ovechkin to lead them to the victory. He finished last season with 49 goals and 38 assists at the age of 33.

When the odds are 1.74, the Washington Capitals win 57% of these matches. When the odds are 2.15 the expected chance of winning is 47%, but Boston actually wins 42% of these matches.

Boston also has the better defense in my opinion and the Capitals will have to be at their best if they want to get the victory. I expect a narrow win for Washington at best.
