- Unders have been historically profitable in NHL Game 7s, so are sharps riding that train in tonight's Caps-Canes matchup?

After two NHL series came to an end last night, the third and final first-round Game 7 will take place tonight in Washington.
Home teams have dominated the Caps-Canes battle thus far, going 6-0 and outscoring visitors 26-8. On that note, the Capitals are fairly sizable favorites — listed around -150 — on their home ice tonight.
That moneyline hasn’t been the main target of sharp bettors, though. Instead, their favorite bet has seemed to come on the total of 5.5 goals.
John Ewing wrote earlier today about the historically profitable trend of Game 7 unders, which have hit at a 56% clip since 1996. The question is, are sharps buying into that trend continuing tonight?
