Washington 6 @ Buffalo 4 | 01/15 | 12:00 AM UTC

Washington -135


ANALYSIS: The last time Buffalo played a game was roughly 10 months ago against these Capitals. The Sabres won 3-2 in a shootout despite getting outshot 35-26 on March 9, 2020. Washington is loaded on offense this season and now on defense with the additions of Zdeno Chara and Justin Schultz. I love Ilya Samsonov in goal full time after going 16-6 with a 2.55 GAA last season. Washington is by far the more talented team and has won 12 of the past 16 vs. Buffalo.
