Best Washington Capitals Betting Sites

It was during the 1997-98 season the Washington Capitals cemented itself as an organization to be reckoned when the club reached its first Stanley Cup final only to be swept by the Detroit Red Wings. Despite the tough defeat, that was the beginning of the Capitals’ rise in the National Hockey League. Led by Russian superstar sniper, the Capitals have won two Presidents’ Trophies as the league’s top team in 2009-10 and 2015-16. The Capitals have won nine division titles and one conference championship. [+]

But the only thing missing from the team’s impressive resume over the last 20 or so years is a Stanley Cup. There’s been a carrousel of coaches behind the Washington bench over the past few years, including Bruce Boudreau, Dale Hunter and Adam Oats. However, it was current coach Barry Trotz that led the Caps to their best-ever season with a record of 56-18-0-6 during the 2015-16 campaign.

Ovechkin became the team’s all-time scoring leader, passing former Capitals great Peter Bondra. Ovechkin has 525 career goals and 966 points in 839 games played. Setup specialist Nicklas Backstrom is also vaulting up Washington’s all-time scoring list as the Swede sits in fourth with 642 points in 652 games.

How To Win At Washington Capitals Betting

The Capitals are gaining the reputation of being a really good regular season team. Statistics show that as the Caps finish among the top teams in points on a yearly basis. Powered by the Great 8, the Capitals won the Presidents’ Trophy with 120 points during the 2015-16 season.

Goals are easy to come by for this Capitals squad. In fact, the team finished second in that department with 252 goals, with only the Dallas Stars scoring more. Ovechkin, who recorded his sixth 50-goal season, propelled a lot of that, of course. It was also the third straight season Ovechkin scored 50 or more goals.

When placing your bets on the Capitals, keep in mind their ability to outscore opponents in wide margins. Taking the over, in many cases, is your best bet.

It’s also wise to put your money on the Capitals when they’re playing on home soil. The Caps were lights-out at the Verizon Center this season, posting an impressive 28-8-4 record. In saying that, their home record wasn’t too shabby either — 27-10-4.

While boasting one of the best offenses in the NHL, the Capitals are no slouches when it comes to the defensive side of the rink. The Caps allowed 193 goals in 82 games during the 2015-16 season — only the Anaheim Ducks allowed fewer.

Vezina candidate Braden Holtby, who led the league with 48 wins, powered that charge. Holtby’s 2.20 goals-against average also ranked among the top 10 goalies in the league. Depending on the opponent, the Capitals — under Barry Trotz’s defensive-minded system — are more than capable to holding other clubs off the scoreboard on many nights. Overall, the Capitals remain Cup contenders and are likely to make a deep run to the final as soon as next season.
