It all comes down to this. Just one more game and the Stanley Cup Finals are set.

After losing three in a row, the Capitals dug deep and came up with a tremendous performance against the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 6.

It was a gritty, tough and physical game and the Capitals showed they weren’t out for the count just yet.

So now we have Game 7 between the sides. The Capitals have won twice in Tampa already and had a tight 3-2 loss last time out so home ice isn’t as big an advantage in this series.

It’s going to be a hell of a game and the Knights must be loving that it went to Game 7. A lot of thought in regard to their beating the Jets was the Jets were just tired after their 7 game series against the Preds. So this has worked out perfect for them.

Let’s get to it:

Capitals vs Lightning Game 7 Betting Tips:

This has been a tricky series to call.  The Caps take the first two games in Tampa and then the Lightning win the next three with two of them in Washington.  

In game 6 the Capitals looked like a different team.  They had life and outshot the Bolts 34-24.  It all depends on which version of the Caps show up and I have no idea on that.

I haven’t exactly been hitting homeruns with my tips lately so what better time than now to avoid a tip on this game and just enjoy an Eastern Conference Final game #7

No Tip 

Graeme: I tipped the Capitals to win the series at 2.65 odds before the series began, so I’m obviously pretty invested in that bet.

The Caps are around 2.25 odds today to win and I think that’s a solid price. This series is a real 50/50 one and if anything I like the Capitals to win after their Game 6 performance.

It was a gritty performance and the type of performance I feel we rarely see from the Caps – they were determined to win that one and they shut Tampa out in the process.

No bet for me due to the series bet but I’d be quite happy with Capitals to win at that price.
