The Avalanche are 20-9 in their last 29 road games and 12-3 in their last 15 Wednesday games. The Sharks are 2-6 in their last 8 home games and 0-8 in their last 8 games following a win. The under is 14-5 in Avalanche last 19 Wednesday games. The over is 4-0 in Sharks last 4 overall. The Avalanche are 4-24 in the last 28 meetings in San Jose and 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.

The Colorado Avalanche got drilled by the Sharks when these clubs met on Sunday, but it's hard to believe that effort repeats itself. The Avs have still been ridiculously good on the road dating back to last season and the Sharks still can't get out of their way defensively. The Sharks also haven't shown the ability to string wins together. I can only lean toward the Avalanche in this spot, and I'll lay the PL for added betting value.
