Sharks Dominating Series With Devils

The New Jersey Devils have had a season to forget and things won’t get any easier on Thursday when they face off against a squad that’s historically had their number in the San Jose Sharks. In the last six matchups between the teams, the Sharks are a sizzling 5-1. San Jose has also been beating up against weaker competition as of late, posting a 5-1 record versus teams with losing records.

Shark Bites
  • The Devils are 2-6 SU in their last eight games on the road.
  • The Sharks are 5-1 SU in their last six games against teams with losing records.
  • The total has gone OVER in seven of the Sharks' last 10 games after a win.

The Sharks, who opened as -245 favorites on the moneyline, may be a little too pricey for some, but totals bettors will be interested to know the OVER has gone 3-0 in the Devils’ last five when facing a total of 5.0. That’s the spot they’re in tonight.

For some reason, San Jose hasn’t been able to get the job done in their home arena. The Sharks are a measly 12-14-3 at SAP Center, and will open a three-game homestand tonight.
