Washington Capitals vs Vegas Golden Knights Live Stream & TV Coverage NHL Stanley Cup Final 2018 Game 5 Full HD
Game 5 of the 2018 NHL Stanley Cup Finals tonight is a potential closeout contest for the Washington Capitals, who have a chance to win their first ever title with a victory over the Vegas Golden Knights.
After stealing Game 2 on the road and coming through in Games 3 and 4 at home, the Caps just need to win one of the next three games to become the champions.
The Golden Knights can’t afford to lose from here on out, but do have the benefit of playing tonight’s matchup—as well as a decisive Game 7 if they can force it—on their own ice.
Oddsmakers believe that Vegas can at least push this series to Game 6, opening the side as a -140 favorite for the upcoming contest.
That means bettors would have to risk $1.40 to return $1 on a Golden Knights victory, while Washington has been installed as a +130 underdog, which would net bettors $1.30 for every $1 wagered. The Capitals are now an overwhelming favorite to win it all, however, moving to -800 chalk in the series.
Vegas is getting +550 odds to overcome its current 1-3 predicament, needing to notch three wins in a row to improbably lift Lord Stanley’s Cup. The Game 5 total has once again been pegged at 5.5 goals with even, -110 action on both the over and under sides of the bet.
The puck line indicates a close battle on Thursday evening, as the Golden Knights are more than a 2-1 (+205) underdog when laying 1.5 goals, while Washington is a heavy, -235 favorite.
Will the Caps finish off their foe with a third straight “W” tonight, or will Vegas finally find a way to get something going and stave off elimination with the home crowd on its side? Expect a great, back-and-forth bout between these powerhouse organizations, but only one can come out on top at T-Mobile Arena
