Capitals vs Rangers odds
There’s just something about the bright lights of Manhattan for Alexander Ovechkin. Every time he and the Washington Capitals (34-16-4) play the New York Rangers (29-20-5) this season, good things happen…especially for any sports betting player who goes with the Caps at the Internet sportsbook.
It doesn’t come as much surprise that the Caps have beaten the Rangers twice on home ice this season, with Alexander the GR8 potting the game winner during their last meeting on Jan. 3. But the fact that the Caps, who have the worst road record of any NHL division leader at 12-12-3, beat New York at Madison Square Garden this season truly shows their dominance over the Broadway Blueshirts.
The Caps travel to NYC Wednesday and look to finish the regular season 4-0 against the Rangers. Is there any reason to bet against them? Ovechkin is Ovechkin and Mike Green is having the best offensive season by a defenseman in about 15 NHL betting years. With the Rangers playing mediocre hockey of late and goalie Henrik Lundqvist just a game removed from missing time with the flu, the Caps are the better hockey betting pick Wednesday night.
