  • Sidney Crosby suits up to meet Alexander Ovechkin as the rivalry between the 2 Superstars Continues
  • Washington are home underdogs in the Penguins vs Capitals odds
  • Read below our best NHL betting pick for this Wednesday night matchup

On Wednesday Night, we have the continuation of the rivalry between two of the NHL’s greatest players, Sidney Crosby and Alexander Ovechkin. While both the Penguins and Capitals seem to be on the downturn this season with a very poor start to the season, I expect these superstars to play their best against one another. Pittsburgh are listed as road favorites in the Penguins vs Capitals odds.

Puck drop is set for 7:30 PM EST on Wednesday, November 9th, 2022 at Capital One Arena.

The Penguins are coming in losers of seven straight games, while the Capitals are 4-6 in their last 10. Both teams seemingly struggling to start the season, this rivalry could prove to be one of the turning points for one another.

Can Crosby and the Penguins end their losing streak or will Alexander Ovechkin and the Capitals follow up their win against Connor McDavid and the Edmonton Oilers and get their season back on track? Let’s dissect the Penguins vs Capitals odds as we find our best NHL betting pick for Wednesday.

Pittsburgh Penguins Betting Outlook 

The Pittsburgh Penguins are going on one of their worst runs in the Sidney Crosby era, they have ever had. Losers of seven straight, the Penguins are still favored against the Washington Capitals in the Penguins vs Capitals odds tonight.

The Penguins are currently seeing their games become very action heavy. The Penguins are scoring 3.5 goals per game this season, but allowing 3.6 goals per game this season. To follow that, the Penguins are getting 36 shots on goal per game this year but allowing almost 35 shots on goal per game by their opponents.

The Penguins are blessed with top forward talent all throughout their lineup with forwards such as Bryan Rust, Jake Guentzel, and Evgeni Malkin to pair alongside Sidney Crosby, but their defense and goaltending has not risen to the occasion this year.

I like for this game to continue the trend and be high flying with a ton of action both ways for both teams. The total is set at 6.5 in the Penguins vs Capitals odds.

Washington Capitals Betting Outlook 

The Washington Capitals are coming off a big win vs the Edmonton Oilers on Monday with a big 5-4 win. While the season hasn’t started ideally for the Caps, they are plagued with injuries to a ton of their star players.

John Carlson, TJ Oshie, Tom Wilson are all out injured forcing others to step up in their absence. Alexander Ovechkin has carried that load along with Russian Center Evgeny Kuznetsov.

The Washington Capitals are matching the Pittsburgh Penguins in the fun, high-scoring department. They are scoring 2.8 goals per game but allowing 2.9 goals per game this season. The shots are much lower event then the Penguins, however, but there is a ton of goals flying in Washington Capitals games this year.

Penguins vs Capitals Prediction and Best Bet 

With how high scoring these two games have been, I have to be taking the over in tonight’s game. Currently set at 6.5 at close to even money (-110) in the Penguins vs Capitals odds. Last season their matchup went over in 3 of the 4 games they had played and the one that missed ended at 6. If you look back to 2021, 6 of their Last 7 Matchups went over 6.5 total goals.

Both teams are suffering from below average goaltending and the defense has been very poor. With the amount of star forward power, I love the over in the game, and I think both Sidney Crosby and Alex Ovechkin will rise to the occasion and play at their very best in the match.

Best Bet: Over 6.5 (-110)
