The Sharks are in a back-to-back NHL betting spot in this game against Anaheim as they had to play last night at home against Philadelphia.
Bet on hockey has seen these two teams split their last 10 meetings. The teams met earlier this season in Anaheim and the Sharks came away with the 4-1 bet on hockey win. San Jose has won four of the past six games at Anaheim as bet on hockey trends show. Four of those games went under the bet on hockey total with one game going over and one push.
The Sharks have been rolling for those that bet on hockey this season. San Jose is nearly untouchable at home but they also have excelled on the road in bet on hockey action. The Sharks are in the Top 5 in the league in goals scored and they are also in the Top 5 in fewest goals allowed as bet on hockey statistics show. Whenever you have a team ranked in the Top 5 in both of those categories you can rest assured they are going to win a lot of games in NHL betting.
Anaheim has struggled for the most part this bet on hockey season. They have not played well at home and they are nothing special on the road either as the bet on hockey results showed. They are in last place in the Pacific Standings and in serious trouble considering how well Los Angeles, Phoenix and Dallas are playing behind San Jose. The Ducks have been okay on offense as they are about mid-pack in goals scored as bet on hockey stats show. The defense is another story as they are in the bottom third of the league in goals allowed and that is not going to get it done. Anaheim does not have a good enough offense to give up goals as they have so far this season. Jonas Hiller is leading the team with a goals against average of 3.03 and that number is simply not going to win Anaheim enough games in NHL betting. Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf have been the offensive leaders but Anaheim misses the defense that Chris Pronger used to provide and they are a team without an identity right now.
The Ducks have their work cut out for them on Saturday in this NHL betting matchup against the Sharks.
