Vancouver Canucks

San Jose Sharks


SJ Sharks Point Spread

Under 6.0 Game Totals

Money Line Pick

The Canucks come into this game feeling good after beating the St. Louis Blues 3-1 on Monday night. Going back before the All-Star break, Vancouver has now won three games in a row. San Jose on the other hand, is creeping up the Western Conference stands, now 9 points behind the Vegas Golden Knights. They snapped a three-game losing streak by beating the Ducks on Monday. While the Canucks are clearly the better team this year, history would show that they are a fade when playing the Sharks on the road. Trends show that Vancouver is a lowly 1-8 in their last 9 meetings played in the city of San Jose. Couple this with the fact that the Canucks are just 11-13-1 on the road this season and they are a stay away play for me. While I do not love the Sharks, they are a better team in their own arena and it would be a lean to San Jose.

Over Under Pick

The total in this game is 6 and the under is what I will be looking to play. This has to do with the fact that Vancouver is playing elite defense right now. Over their last five games, they are allowing an average of 1.8 goals per game. In turn, that has led to the under cashing in their last five games. With San Jose playing at home, their defense also performs better. These teams have met three times this season and the under is 2-1 in those games. This is a lean as well, but the under is my pick.
