Stars and Sharks Trends

The Sharks are 6-1 in their last seven games against the Central. The under is 6-1 in the Stars last seven games. The over is 7-0-1 in Sharks last 8 when their opponent allows 2 goals or less in their previous game. The over is 16-3-2 in the Sharks last 21 home games. 


This Sharks defense isn’t good and they are going to struggle again in this game. The Stars are giving up only 2.66 goals per game and the Sharks are going to have issues scoring even one goal here. Look for Dallas to score four or five goals and that is going to be the difference here as the Stars are going to get the job done. Back the Stars -1.5 to cash here. This is one of my favorite plays on the board.
