It is the last game of a three-game road trip for the Ducks and the first of a three-game homestand for the Sharks. San Jose has won six of the last ten hockey betting meetings in this series.
Bet on hockey has seen the teams play three times already this season with San Jose winning each time. The Sharks won 4-1 at home earlier this month for people looking to bet on hockey. They won 3-2 at Anaheim in November and 4-1 at Anaheim in early October. Each of those three bet on hockey games went under the total.
Anaheim is in last place in the Pacific Division but they are not a bad team as they are right around the .500 mark for those that bet on hockey. The problem for the Ducks is that they don’t do anything extremely well. They have below average scoring, ranking 17th in the league and their goals against is even worse at 24th. With those types of bet on hockey numbers they are doing well to be around break even. The Ducks have not been a winning team on the road this hockey betting season but they can still steal a few games from time to time. The better way to play Anaheim on the road as you bet on hockey is to take their games under the total. The Ducks have been a lower scoring team on the road than at home in hockey betting.
San Jose looked unbeatable earlier this season but then a strange thing happened. They started to lose close games at home in hockey betting. They had a five-game homestand in which they lost four one-goal games one of which went to overtime and two which went to shootouts. The Sharks may have righted the ship in their last home game against these same Ducks just over a week ago when they won 4-1 for anyone who may bet on hockey. The bet on hockey stats for San Jose are still very good. They are 3rd in the league in scoring and 7th in fewest goals allowed. It was just that weird streak of bet on hockey home games where they just couldn’t find a way to win the close games.
San Jose is likely to get most of the attention from gamblers planning to bet on hockey in this matchup against Anaheim.
