Washington Capitals Betting Odds

The Washington Capitals have been representing America’s capital on the ice since 1974. Although they’ve been a franchise for over 40 years, they have yet to win the Stanley Cup. The Capitals did come close in 1998 when they won the conference title. More recently, the “Caps” have secured the President’s Trophy twice, in 2009-2010 and 2014-2015, which is given to the team with the most points at the end of the season. With players like Ovechkin and Backstorm on the roster, the Caps are a force to be reckoned with.

Washington Capitals Betting

The Capitals have had a consistely strong showing in the National Hockey Leauge’s leaderboards. They have captured nine division titles and have been in the playoffs 26 times since their formation in 1974. In 2014, they did not make the playoffs, ending a 6 year playoff streak. Even though they are often in the playoffs, the Capitals only made it farther than round 2 of the playoffs twice; in 1990 and in 1998.

The Capital’s strenghts are their diverse roster that is full of strong players, and a solid goalie line. But, their weakness is their sub-par defense line. 

The Caps have never won a Stanley Cup, but they came so close in 1998. After advancing to the last round of the playoffs, the Capitals faced the Detroit Red Wings. After a crushing 4 game sweep, the Red Wings took the Stanley Cup home. They are favoured by betters becuase they are a reliable team, and often win against big teams and lesser know teams. 

This year, the Washington Capitals made it to the playoffs. They are up against the Philadelphia Flyers. So far the series is 3-2 Capitals. 

The Capitals are number one in the league with 120 points. This furthers their reputation as a sturdy and reliable team to both support and bet on. When it comes to where the Capitals win, it’s clear that the Caps win roughly the same amount of time on the road as when they’re at home. This year they’re 29-8-4 home and 27-10-4 away.

Still, The Washington Capital’s legacy is maintained by their players. Six former Caps were inducted in the Hockey Hall of Fame. Yet, the Caps still come out short compared to the Red Wings who have 60 players in the Hall of Fame.
