- The Capitals and Hurricanes will face off in Game 6 of their playoff series tonight in Carolina (Washington leads 3-2).
- Sharp bettors have found value on both the moneyline and over/under, and Sports Insights' Bet Signals help reveal both plays.
Home teams have owned the first five games of the Capitals-Hurricanes series. In addition to being unbeaten, the home side has outscored visitors 21-6. Home ice belongs to the Hurricanes tonight (7 p.m. ET, NBCSN), and facing elimination they opened at around a pick’em.
The earliest books to market actually had Carolina as a slight underdog, but most released their first moneyline around Carolina -110/-115. Despite the success of home teams in the series, the public has been happy to back the defending champs in each of the first five games.
And given their 6-0 Game 5 win, the Caps have once again drawn the majority of bets tonight.
But even with a 65% backing, Washington has actually become more of an underdog. The Canes are up past the -120 mark — with some books as high as -125 — and the Caps have moved into plus-money territory — up to +110 at a few shops.
