The Sens are showing excellent value, listed as a Pick'em on their own ice. Ottawa is 14-3-1-2 at the Scotiabank Center this year, and they're only getting healthier with the return of some key injured players. Washington is now 11-9-2-0 on the road this season, thanks in part to their current 8 game winning streak (3 of which were on the road). Two of those three road wins were against losing teams, the Florida Panthers and the Carolina Hurricanes. Note that the Capitals are just 8-10 against winning teams this year, and 2-6 in their last 8 road games when visiting a team with a home winning percentage of 60% or better. They're also coming off of three straight home games, and they are 0-2 in this spot. Ottawa is currently 4-1 in their last 5 on their own ice, and they are 7-2 the last 9 times they've hosted the Capitals. This is a generous price the oddsmakers have posted here. We'll gladly side with the home team at the Scotiabank Center tonight.
