The Winnipeg Jets and San Jose Sharks meet Wednesday in NHL action at the SAP Center.
The Winnipeg Jets look for another win after winning six of their last eight games. The Winnipeg Jets are averaging 2.7 goals per game and are scoring on 16.2 percent of their power play opportunities. Nikolaj Ehlers leads Winnipeg with 11 goals, Patrik Laine has 14 assists and Blake Wheeler has 62 shots on goal. Defensively, the Winnipeg Jets are allowing three goals per game and are killing 75.5 percent of their opponents power plays. Connor Hellebuyck has given up 43 goals on 600 shots faced and Laurent Brossoit has allowed 25 goals on 201 shots. The Winnipeg Jets have allowed three or more goals in five of their last six games.
The San Jose Sharks look to keep the puck rolling after winning nine of their last 10 games. The San Jose Sharks are averaging 2.8 goals per game and are scoring on 20 percent of their power play opportunities. Evander Kane leads San Jose with 12 goals, Logan Couture has 20 assists and Brent Burns has 69 shots on goal. Defensively, the San Jose Sharks are allowing 3.3 goals per game and are killing 90.9 percent of their opponents power plays. Aaron Dell has given up 20 goals on 194 shots faced and Martin Jones has allowed 61 goals on 560 shots. The San Jose Sharks have allowed three or less goals in nine of their last 12 games.
The Jets are 5-1 in their last 6 games as an underdog, 5-1 in their last 6 games as a road underdog and 5-1 in their last 6 road games. The Sharks are 7-0 in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest, 6-1 in their last 7 games as a favorite and 9-1 in their last 10 overall. The over is 4-1 in Jets last 5 overall. The over is 5-2 in Sharks last 7 overall. The Jets are 5-2 in the last 7 meetings in San Jose. The road team is 5-0 in the last 5 meetings. The underdog is 5-0 in the last 5 meetings.
There's value with the Winnipeg Jets and the plus money given that they've been successful in the underdog role lately and are playing some of their best hockey of the season. The problem is the San Jose Sharks have caught fire over these last three weeks and hockey is often about riding the hot hand and jumping off once it turns cold. At home, I'm not looking to step in front of these confident Sharks with an improved defense. It also doesn't hurt that the Sharks have won six of the last 10 meetings against the Jets. I'll lay the reasonable price with the home team.
