Kraken vs. Sharks Prediction

I’m going to take a shot on the Sharks here. Backing San Jose in any way shape or form is not for the faint of heart, but the thing is the home team’s won 7 of the last 8 meetings between these two teams including both meetings this season, the Kraken are almost out of the playoff picture mathematically, and the Sharks don’t have many winnable games the rest of the way even though this team looks like they’re going to have the most ping pong balls in the upcoming draft lottery. I think it’s worth taking a stab at the plus money with the Sharks here although there are much better options on Monday’s card.
