Confines of SAP Center Have Been More Than Friendly For Sharks

The San Jose Sharks have won three straight at home and will attempt to put another W in the column when they do battle with the Minnesota Wild at SAP Center on Sunday.

Xbet opened the Sharks as -121 home favorites with a total of 5.5.

Shark Bites
  • The OVER is 4-1 in the Wild's last five road games.
  • The Wild are 1-4 SU in their last five Sunday games.
  • The Sharks are 2-5 SU in their last seven vs the Central Division.

The Sharks have scored 14 goals during their home winning streak and five in each of their last two games, including Saturday’s shutout win over the Ottawa Senators. Logan Couture, who scored a goal and set up two others to get past the 400-point mark for his career, has been red-hot lately and is primed to keep the momentum going tonight.

Minnesota split the first two games of its current California road trip after falling 5-2 to Los Angeles on Tuesday before beating Anaheim 3-2 in overtime on Friday. Devan Dubnyk has been rock solid in net, as the goaltender has gone 8-2-1 SU over his last 11 starts.

Historically, the Wild haven’t enjoyed their trips to SAP Center. In Minnesota’s last 19 visits to San Jose, they’re 4-15 SU.
