Two of the hottest teams in the Western Conference square off in California when the Colorado Avalanche visit the San Jose Sharks Tuesday evening.
- The Avalanche are 1-11 SU in their last 12 games on the road against the Sharks.
- The Avalanche are 2-5 SU in their last seven games with two days off between games.
- The Sharks are 7-1 SU in their last eight games with one day off.
The Sharks have used a 7-1-2 run in their last 10 games to climb up the Pacific Division standings and close the gap with the leading Los Angeles Kings. They could have used a win against the Kings in their last contest but lost 3-2 in overtime, still capturing a single point in defeat.
The Sharks haven’t been the best team on home ice this season, but it looks like they might be starting to come around. The team is just 9-12-2 at home this season (16-6-2 on the road), but have won four of their past six games at the SAP Center.
The Avs are really starting to find their stride and are another team climbing up the standings. Fighting in the middle of the tough Central Division, the Avs have won four-straight games and seven of their last 10.
Furthermore, Colorado has been an UNDER bettors’ dream recently as scores have stayed UNDER the total in seven-straight games.Recent head-to-head meetings might dictate otherwise, however, as both contests were high-scoring affairs. The Avs wons 6-3 back on December 28 while the Sharks triumphed 4-3 on November 1.
