The Sharks have been one of the best teams in the NHL this season and a favorite among those that bet on NHL odds. NHL betting has this as the first half of a back-to-back for both teams. After this Friday night matchup the Stars play at Los Angeles while the Sharks are in Phoenix. San Jose has won 7 of the last 10 in this series against Dallas but they did lose last month at home by a score of 3-2 in NHL betting. That was a rare win for Dallas in this series. The Sharks had won three of the previous four home games against Dallas in NHL betting.
Low scoring games have been the norm in this NHL betting series. Seven of the last ten in this NHL betting series have gone under the total with one push.
Dallas is one of those teams in NHL betting that is just good enough to be unpredictable for those that bet on NHL action. The Stars have been better at home than on the road but they have shown the ability to steal points away from Dallas as they proved earlier this season in San Jose. The Stars are just outside the Top 10 in both goals scored and goals against as NHL betting statistics indicated. The Stars are not an elite team but they definitely have the ability to win any game on their schedule. The problem for Dallas is that they can also lose any game on their schedule. Predicting the Stars when you bet on NHL games can be somewhat difficult.
Predicting what San Jose is going to do in NHL betting is not nearly as tough. They simply win. The Sharks have been great at home and on the road in NHL betting. Their offense is right near the top of the league in terms of goals scored as bet on NHL stats show and their defense is also Top 10. The Sharks have not played quite as well recently as they did lose at home to both Calgary and St. Louis. That has not been the norm though for the Sharks in NHL betting as they have been winning more often than not. The Stars and Sharks will be playing again in just over a week in Dallas so the two teams will become very familiar with one another.
