The Washington Capitals outhit the Tampa Bay Lightning, 39-19, and outshot them, 34-24, in a 3-0 victory on Monday. The Caps avoided elimination and forced a Game 7 against the Bolts Wednesday (8 p.m. ET) in Tampa.
Winner-take-all games are hard to predict. Home ice and momentum have little predictive value. Since 2006, the team hosting Game 7 is 27-26 straight-up and the team that won Game 6 is 25-28 straight-up in the series-deciding matchup.
Best of luck picking the winner. While trying to turn a profit betting the moneyline in Game 7 can be challenging, I’ve found a winning over/under system that bettors need to know for Capitals-Lightning Game 7.
