When looking over all of tonight’s game this one really caught my eye for a couple of reasons. First and foremost the injury bug has really caught the New Jersey Devils. When comparing the two teams with the injury report Washington has a major advantage in that category. Another thing that caught my eye was the current line movement that is going on for this game. 53% of all Off-Shore bettors are siding with the Devils tonight. However, the Captials line has moved from 2.04 to 1.91. Which indicates that “sharp” money may well be on the Captials tonight. Both teams have been average this year but I believe the Captials get the job done tonight.
