Sharks can take commanding 3-0 series lead at home vs Ducks

The San Jose Sharks have controlled the tempo through two games and get to return home up 2-0 in their first-round series vs the Anaheim Ducks. The Sharks are 5-2 SU in their last seven games at home and have won 10 of their last 14 games in their barn when hosting the Ducks. San Jose opened as a -136 favorite to take a 3-0 series lead.

SHARK BITES
  • The Ducks are 0-4 SU and ATS in their last four games vs the Sharks.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 10 of the Ducks’ last 12 games on the road.
  • The Sharks are 1-4 SU in their last five games in the playoffs at home.

Sharks goaltender Martin Jones has been instrumental in their road success at the Honda Center in this series. Jones has only allowed two goals on 53 shots through two games and he could be a huge factor at the SAP Center tonight as he has only let in eight goals in his last four home games vs the Ducks. Scoring has not been San Jose’s forte for most of the season but going into the postseason, the Sharks started to click offensively, averaging 3.69 goals per game in their last 20 games, which ranked fifth in the NHL over that span.

Anaheim didn’t take long to get on the board, scoring on its first shot in Game 2 to take the early lead. Usually, the Ducks were money in the bank in that position as they finished 30-11 SU in 41 games this season when scoring first. Goaltender John Gibson was spectacular going into the postseason, winning eight straight games at home with a 1.62 goals-against average, but he has been below average thus far in the playoffs, allowing six goals on 69 shots through two games.

The total opened at 5 and the UNDER may be the best option when these rivals clash. The UNDER has hit in five of the last seven games in this matchup with an average combined score of 4.5 goals per game.
