The San Jose Sharks head up north to Winnipeg where they take on the Jets. These two teams haven’t played a ton of a games against each and that’s probably a good thing for the Jets as the Sharks have won 8 of the last 11 meetings overall and 3 of the play 4 meetings in Winnipeg.
Head to Head Trends
Sharks are 8-3 in the last 11 meetings.
Sharks are 3-1 in the last 4 meetings in Winnipeg.
Winnipeg Jets (-120)
The Winnipeg Jets are 4th in the Central Division with 47 points just 7 points behind the 1st place Nashville Predators. After a slow start losing 5 of their first 6 games the Jets have played pretty good the rest of the season winning 19 of their last 33 games and if they keep it up they should make the playoffs. The Jets had some issues scoring goals early in the season but they have really picked up that part of their game recently averaging 3.2 goals per game over their last 10 games. The Jets are also one of the better defensive teams in the league allowing just 2.4 goals per game.
Winnipeg Jets Trends
Jets are 5-2 in their last 7 home games vs. a team with a losing road record.
Jets are 2-8 in their last 10 vs. a team with a winning record.
San Jose Sharks (+110)
The San Jose Sharks are 4th in the Pacific Division with 45 points 13 points back of the 1st place Anaheim Ducks. The Sharks are another team that got off to a slow start this season. Actually they won their first 3 games but after that they struggled losing 14 of their next 21 games. The Sharks have played much better since though winning 10 of their last 15 games. The Sharks have an ok offense averaging 2.7 goals per game and they also have just an ok defense allowing 2.6 goals per game but I think they will play much better in the second half of the season and easily make the playoffs.
San Jose Sharks Trends
Sharks are 37-16 in their last 54 games following a home loss of 3 or more goals.
Sharks are 6-1 in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest.
I like the San Jose Sharks over the Jets in this one. I think the Sharks are the better team in general and should probably be a slight favorite but we’re getting them as a +110 underdog so there’s some really good value there.
Free Pick: San Jose Sharks +110
