For 25 points Brad Richard is chained for the team and we have the Washington Capitals going against the Winnipeg Jets. Let’s see which one is really going for the puck in this game.
Capitals VS Jets (+105, 5.5)
It seems that the Jets is becoming one helluva home team in front of their crazed fans at the MTS Centre.
They have made a huge improvement on their home record to 10-4 on the year with an impressive 2-1 win over the league-leading Minnesota Wild. Bryan Little scored his 11th goal of the season with about five minutes left in the third to put the game away for good.
“It proves to teams that we’re up there and we can play with the best teams in the league, especially in our arena,” Bryan Little told reporters. “We wanted to make this a tough arena to come play in. To beat those teams in our building is huge for our confidence.”
Winnipeg ended it around -110 for their win over the Minnesota Wild, however if you were early at this line then you would see an even better price with the overvalued Capitals coming to town. The Jets will definitely be dashing for the fans in this game.

New York Rangers VS St. Louis Blues (-135, 5)
The Rangers is a team where you don’t usually see them pegged as underdogs, only four times over the last 18 games and that’s backed up by good reasons.
They are in fact a team with a strong defensive system and Brad Richards has been everything this team has needed and more after a bit of sluggish start. “I have to admit that even though I wanted to come here, it was a hell of a transition, especially since I’m not the kind of person who is the best at adapting to change,” Richards told reporters about his move from Dallas. “Mentally, it took its toll on me, and I wasn’t as sharp as I wanted to be or needed to be, but thankfully I got great support from my teammates and we were winning. I’m starting to feel it come now. I feel comfortable being here and living here. The best is ahead of me.”
