Stingy Sharks Have Posted No OVERs at Home vs Division Rivals

San Jose and Edmonton sit in a points tie in the Pacific Division and tonight’s matchup offers the Oilers a chance to not only move clear of the Sharks but to crawl within two points of the Ducks. Edmonton’s loss on Tuesday ended a five-game winning streak but with four goals in the losing effort, the Oilers still possess the hottest offense in the NHL – scoring over four goals a game during their last six contests.

SHARK BITES
  • The Oilers are 11-2 SU in their last 13 games against their division.
  • The Sharks are 3-10 on the puckline at home against teams in the Pacific this season.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 10 of the Oilers' last 13 games as the underdog.

This will be the rubber match between the Sharks and Oilers but given San Jose’s recent struggles and two-game losing streak against Edmonton, the teal and black could be in trouble with no Joe Thornton or Logan Couture. Edmonton has thrived against division opponents all season and with a division title still within grasp, the Oilers are a good wager as the betting underdog this evening.

A bet that should be seriously considered tonight is the UNDER. The two teams have combined for just 10 OVERs in their 54 total division games this season and the Sharks have posted exactly ZERO OVERs at home against Pacific Division opponents.
