The Sharks are 3-9 in their last 12 road games and 3-8 in their last 11 overall. The Avalanche are 2-5 in their last 7 games following a win. The over is 7-2 in Sharks last 9 overall. The over is 12-5 in Avalanche last 17 overall. The Sharks are 0-4 in the last 4 meetings in Colorado and 1-4 in the last 5 meetings.

The Colorado Avalanche have been one of the more impressive teams in the league up to this point, and they should like their chances against a Sharks club they just beat 7-3 on Thursday. In fact, the Avs have outscored the Sharks 15-6 in the last three meetings. With that said, the Sharks have been better than expected so far this season and eventually some of these shots they get will find the back of the net. This is a massive line. I'll take a shot with the Sharks and the monster plus money.
