Bet Total to Go Under For Avalanche vs Capitals

The slumping Colorado Avalanche look to get back on track as they visit the Washington Capitals. The oddsmakers favor Colorado at -165 despite its four-game skid as Washington has also dropped seven of its last eight decisions. But instead of betting on a side here, our main pick lies with our NHL over-under predictions: Go under the total.

Avalanche vs Capitals Game Information

1. Game: Avalanche (32-17-4) vs Capitals (23-20-8)
2. Date/Time: Feb. 13, 7 p.m. ET
3. Location: Capital One Arena, Washington, D.C.
4. Avalanche vs Capitals Live Stream: NHL.com


Given Washington’s offensive ineptitude, the total is set at just six goals. Most of Colorado’s games have gone over their totals – six of their last on the road. But we’re hard-pressed to see Washington score enough goals to cash the ‘over’ here. Given the lines, the ‘under’ is better for betting online.


Avalanche vs Capitals Odds and Spreads

1. The total has gone under in four of Washington’s last six home games.
2. The under is 2-5-1 in Washington’s last eight games when the total is six.
3. The total has gone under in four of the last six times Colorado faced Washington.
4. The under is 6-3-1 in Washington’s last 10 games as an underdog.

6. Washington is 3-1 ATS in its last four home games.

Avalanche vs Capitals O/U Pick: Under 6½

Colorado is going through road blues again and that’s partly due to goaltending. The Avalanche have an 89.7% save percentage and -11.4 goals saved above average. Alexandar Georgiev has struggled. But he has Washington’s number. And he just has to be OK for our NHL pick today to cash.

The Avalanche will control most of the action here. They will keep Washington in their zone as they push the attack. But Washington has been decent at neutralizing its opponents. It has held seven of its last 12 opponents to three goals or fewer. The Caps went through a brutal five-game stretch.

But Washington recently shut out Boston and held Vancouver to three goals in an overtime loss. This team is filled with big and gritty veterans who can make life hard for even the most skilled teams such as Colorado. Even if the Avalanche dominate shooting and possession metrics, the total won’t go past six goals.

Avalanche vs Capitals ATS Pick: Capitals +1½

Washington is 21-5-4 when it holds opponents to three goals or fewer. Colorado averages just above three goals per road game and that’s down to 1.5 in their four-game slump. And even if Colorado manages to score twice that, we’ll bank on Washington to score a pair on Georgiev. The Caps’ puck line is a solid choice on the NHL odds.

Avalanche vs Capitals Player Prop Pick: Cale Makar – Over ½ Points

Cale Makar is on pace to win another Norris Trophy. He has 60 points in 48 games and averages a point per game versus Washington. Makar and Nathan MacKinnon are the engines of this Colorado offense so bet online on either to produce, even in a low score.
