Stars Continue Ugly Road Slide in Cali

The San Jose Sharks and Dallas Stars are trending in opposite directions ahead of Saturday night’s clash in California. The Stars recently relinquished first place in the Central Division to Chicago and have lost five out of six games in January, while the Sharks have won four-straight.

Shark Bites
  • The Sharks are 0-5 in their last five home games vs a team with a winning road record.
  • The home team is 11-5 in the last 16 meetings between the Stars and Sharks.
  • The Sharks are 1-5 in their last six game vs the Central Division.

For some reason, the Sharks simply can’t get the job done in front of their hometown fans. San Jose is a paltry 7-12-0-0 in at home this year despite going a phenomenal 15-6-2-0 on the road. Needless to say, the Sharks rank as one of the worst home squads in the NHL. The good news for Sharks bettors is Dallas is winless in its last six road contests.

When the Sharks and Stars collide, high-scoring games have become the norm. The OVER has paid out in each of the previous four meetings between the clubs. The OVER is also 8-3-1 in the Sharks’ last 12.
