    Vegas was favored to win this series. At home in Game 1 they were -155 favs, Game 2 -145, and now in Game 5 at home sit at again -145.

    If you like Vegas, and many seem to on the RX, other sites and in Vegas here is the alternative thought...

    Take Vegas to win the Series +500. Yes, I understand they have to win 3 in a row, but 2 of those are at home and the Caps have not played great throughout the playoffs at home, although they have this series.

    So if they win tonight and really like the Caps next game you will most likely be able to buy back the series play around -500 or probably better you could play the Caps in Game 6 at -125/-130.

    If the Caps win you would break even, but if they lose Game 6 you have the Vegas +500 in Game 7 when the line will most likely be Vegas -150.

    Just a thought. I understand there are

    Sorry was editing and my MAC froze. As I was writing...

    I understand there are negatives to this strategy. Primarily, you would not get paid this evening if you simply played a Series bet at this point. Of course, you could play both/split your wager. And if Vegas losses Game 6 and you do not protect yourself by buying the Caps back. Of course, if you do, you would simply break even.

    If it does go 7 you are set up very nicely. I would usually only do this when trailing a Series by 1 game but I believe it has merit for those who like Vegas.

    As well, I seem to be one of the few who believes the Series will either end tonight or back in Vegas in Game 7. In the NHL home ice means less than any other major sport. This year in the playoffs Home teams are 42-43.

    Good luck to All.

    Cheers!
