Vegas is just a conglomeration of people who bet. You see in Las Vegas the house just wants the bets placed as evenly as possible so they don't lose money and they charge like 10% on every bet placed. They want bets and will adjust those numbers based on how many fans bet on which team.

NY teams are always skewed since so very many of their fans will be on their team no matter what. This is the case with most large markets.

Its fair to extrapolate that the unbiased fan (degenerate gambler) believes the Caps are even greater favorites than those numbers suggest. The line is brough closer to 50/50 due to the large number of irrational thinking NY fans.
