All these years later, Alex Ovechkin is STILL the face of the franchise that drafted him first overall back in 2004. Capitals’s winger Ovechkin is both approaching 40 years old and the Wayne Gretzky’s all-time goal-scored mark, which remains a focus point with Washington, for better or worse. Better because, well, Ovechkin is a betting attraction at top NHL betting sites — especially as he nears Gretzky’s mark. Worse because Washington is constantly one of the league’s oldest squads.

Since winning the Stanley Cup in 2018, the Capitals haven’t turned over its roster all that much. They’ve kept many of the pieces that landed them its one and only championship, though all those pieces are much older now. What’s resulted is several years of middling performance from the team — which has been conducive for Washington Capitals bets. Why? Because that’s given the team a measure of predictability, which makes things all the easier for bettors.

However, there’s zero guarantee that will continue. It’s on you to watch the team closely and look for any signs of potential change — more regression from its older players? A new hotshot player arriving and in a position to take the mantle from Ovechkin? Any one of these, if not both simultaneously, can force you to update your strategy to bet on Washington Capitals game. The earlier you realize these changes, the more of an “edge” you’ll have when making a Washington Capitals bet.

A unique aspect of betting on the Capitals is the presence of Ovechkin. You’ll find a host of prop bets around him given his superstar status. That will become even more apparent the closer he inches to Gretzky’s record. Ovechkin props can be lucrative, especially since these betting markets are less “mature” than say, puck lines and over/unders. Speaking of which, those types of bets will be readily available on every single Capitals game. And given the 82-game slate, that’s a whole lot of betting chances.
