NHL Vegas Odds: Flames Will Burn Capitals But Not Cover ATS

The Washington Capitals hope to continue their surprising run toward a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference when they visit the Calgary Flames on Monday in a game difficult to call for NHL over-under picks.

The Capitals are 9-4-1 in their last 14 contests, including consecutive 2-1 road wins at Vancouver and Seattle last week. Washington is just one point out of a wild-card spot with two games in hand and three behind Philadelphia for third place in the Metropolitan Division.

Calgary has also won two in a row behind rookie goalie Dustin Wolf after a 1-4-0 stretch hurt their wild-card chances in the Western Conference. The Flames are eight points out of a playoff spot and will likely be relegated to a spoiler down the stretch.

Both teams have had stretches this season where they kept teams in check defensively, but Washington is 18th in the league in goals against while Calgary is 20th. That makes the over-under a bet to probably stay away from.

Even though the Capitals have a better chance to make the playoffs, the Flames are +8000 to win their conference in NHL Vegas odds while Washington is +12500 to win the East.
