The Sharks are 2-7 in their last 9 games as an underdog, 2-7 in their last 9 games playing on 2 days rest and 0-4 in their last 4 road games. The Blackhawks are 19-40 in their last 59 vs. Pacific, 5-2 in their last 7 games playing on 2 days rest and 1-4 in their last 5 Wednesday games. The under is 7-3 in Sharks last 10 overall. The over is 7-3 in Blackhawks last 10 home games. The home team is 23-10 in the last 33 meetings. The favorite is 39-13 in the last 52 meetings.

These are two teams that have been tough to figure out, as they show flashes one week and then fall on their face the next. The Chicago Blackhawks have a clear edge at home and have been the more profitable team to the point they'll be in the green if they can win this contest right here. However, the San Jose Sharks have won seven of the last nine meetings against the Blackhawks, and they've been slightly improved defensively over these last couple of weeks. Underdogs have been good to us this year. I'll take a shot in the dark with the Sharks.
