Arizona Coyotes (2.50) vs Washington Capitals (1.50)
The Capitals are on a roll at the moment, which has put them third in the NHL power rankings, they are scoring freely and have a solid goaltender rotation.

Parlay Pick: Washington Capitals to win & over 5.5 (3.23)
The Capitals scoring tables are led by the Russian Alex Ovechkin, who’s on 13 goals and 9 assists for the season. But there are goalscorers contributing throughout the Capitals roster.
Washington have been lethal in offense and have managed to score 30 goals in their last six games. If you look back at their wins this season, they’ve been consistent in putting up a decent score in almost every game.
It’s been all about Dvorak, Soderberg, Grabner and Garland, who’s the leading scorer on 7, for the Coyotes. They’re relied on them for the majority of their offensive firepower this season.
Take the Capitals to win & the game to go over 5.5 this evening.

Washington to find the net, Tom Wilson anytime scorer (2.75)
We wanted to include a player NHL free pick for our Monday night hockey picks and we felt the young Canadian deserves the nod.
The Toronto-born Tom Wilson has enjoyed his season so far, putting up 8 goals and 7 assists so far for the 2019/20 campaign.
In the Capitals last game against the Vegas Knights he scored his eighth goal of the season, latching onto an assist from Jakub Vrana in the first.
The way the Capitals are playing at the moment, they will always create chances.
Take the Tom Wilson to score anytime.
Washington Capitals to win the first & first period to go over 1.5 (4.14)
Arizona have lost their last 3 games on the bounce and will be lacking in confidence, especially coming up against this Washington roster in the form they’re in right now.
The Capitals high-flying offense will know what they can do and will look to set the tone of the game early on. Expect them to come out all-guns-blazing and pile the pressure on to a team low in confidence.
The Metropolitan Division leaders will be ready for this one.
The NHL betting odds were quite nice on this wager and well worth a punt in our eyes.
Take the Capitals to win & first period to go over 1.5.
