The Pittsburgh Penguins are hefty -200 favorites versus the Ottawa Senators in what’s going to be their second Game 7 in a row these playoffs.
If you’re thinking fatigue might play a significant element in this particular one, you might want to hang on a moment.
At the post-lockout age since 2006, teams coming off a Game 7 at the prior series are now 7-5-2 (56.8%) in Game 7s in the following show. (Both compels are because groups facing each other were coming off a Game 7 on two events.)
That’s fairly impressive under draining circumstances like the NHL playoffs and it also indicates it’s not all that uncommon.
We’ve seen 39 series visit Game 7s since 2006 and 15 of them — or almost 40% — have been followed closely by another Game 7 show.
And in case you’re wondering, teams are 17-13-9 (57% ) in another series after a Game 7 while home teams are 168-70 (58.4% ) in Game 7s heading back to 1939.
Here is an additional Game 7 trend to consider before you put your wager tonight: the Pens are 0-7 at home in Game 7s in franchise history after losing Game 6.
In case those numbers made you dizzy, please wait a couple of minutes before putting your Game 7 bet.
May puck fortune be with you.
