Stephen Nover's NHL Underdog of the Week
Buffalo vs. Washington,
11/01/2019 19:00 EDT,
Score: 1 - 6
Money Line: +165 Buffalo
The Sabres are much improved this season. They are in a great ambush spot against Washington. Buffalo last played on Monday at home losing 3-2 in a shootout to Arizona.
The well-rested Sabres draw the Capitals in Washington's first game back from a highly successful five-game road swing.
The combination of a huge plus price, Sabres' improvement and the letdown spot for the Capitals makes it worth backing the underdog.
