Why Bet On San Jose?

The best reason to back San Jose is because the Sharks are playing very well right now, having won five straight games and seven of their last nine overall including a convincing 3-0 shutout win over Minnesota on Monday despite the fact that their top two scorers, defenseman Brent Burns (team-leading 73 points) and captain Joe Pavelski (team-high 36 goals) failed to put a point on the board. Another great reason to back San Jose is because the Sharks rank a stellar second in scoring at 3.6 goals per game.

Why Bet On Winnipeg?

Is Winnipeg a secure bet in the NHL lines?

The best reason to back the Jets in this affair is because they are playing at home and will be quite hungry after suffering a 3-1 road loss against reigning Stanley Cup champion Washington on Sunday despite out-shooting the Caps by the whopping margin of 34-18.

“We played a heck of a road game here,” Winnipeg coach Paul Maurice told reporters after the setback. “You don’t like losing when you play well. Their guy (Pheonix Copley) made some good saves, they got some good breaks around the net, but our compete was good. You know what? We had five opportunities to score on the power play. That doesn’t go. That hurts you.”

Expert Analysis and Prediction for Sharks vs Jets

I know San Jose is playing well right now, but I really believe Winnipeg is the better team in this affair and the fact that they are playing at home and coming off a crushing loss will help the Jets get back in the win column in this one.

I know the Sharks are 5-1 in their last 6 games as an underdog and a scorching 21-7 in their last 28 games overall, but Winnipeg has gone an incendiary 65-25 in their last 90 home games, 52-22 in their last 74 games as a home favorite and 22-8-3 at home this season. I like the Jets in a thriller!
