Montreal Canadiens v Washington Capitals Over 5.5 Goals

Ice hockey - NHL - 10 Jan 00:30

This ice hockey betting tip comes from the NHL and the match between Montreal Canadiens and Washington Capitals.
My only bet this evening and just a £5 stake as I feel Over 5.5 Goals offers a touch of value. For me the correct price is 2.38, most bookies have it priced up at those odds but we can get 2.56 at Marathonbet.
Two decent teams who could easily meet in the 1st Round of the playoffs.
Montreal average 3.6 goals per game at home this season, Washington score an average of 2.77 goals per game on the road, that gives us 6.37, well over.
They met 3 times in 2016 and 2 of those matches went Over 5.5 Goals including a 5-2 win for the Canadiens here in Montreal.
Both teams have been in good form. Montreal have won 4 of their last 5 scoring 17 goals.
6 of their last 9 matches went over 5.5 Goals.
At home 5 of their last 6 matches have had 6 goals or more, a very promising stat.
Washington have won their last 5 games in a row scoring 19 goals.
4 of their last 6 matches have featured Over 5.5 Goals.
All these stats are suggesting that this is a very good price.
The main problem is that both sides are expected to start their first choice goaltenders. That nearly put me off and is the main reason I have gone half stakes.
However Price (Montreal) has seen 7 of his last 10 matches finish over.
The stats for Holtby (Washington) are not good for this bet but still 3 of his last 6 performances on the road finished Over 5.5 Goals.
As long as you get the best odds I think this is a decent bet. Click below and sign up today if you don't already have an account, make the most of the free bet on offer.
