Gamblers making an NHL bet will want to be aware that this is the first game of a three-game road trip for the Sharks while it is the last game of a four-game homestand for the Canucks.
NHL betting trends favor the Sharks in this matchup as they have won 7 of the last 10 meetings between the two teams. At Vancouver, the Sharks have won three of the last four games as NHL bet trends indicate. The teams have met three times so far this season with the Sharks winning all three games. San Jose won 2-1 and 5-0 at home and 4-2 at Vancouver.
San Jose has been one of the top teams in NHL betting this season but mainly at home. The Sharks have proven to be vulnerable on the road in NHL betting. San Jose has overall numbers that are Stanley Cup quality as they are in the Top 5 in both offense and on defense as NHL bet statistics show. Joe Thornton has led the team in scoring while Patrick Marleau has led the Sharks in plus/minus and in shots. Evegeni Nabokov is the Sharks netminder and he is near the top of the league in wins with 31.
Vancouver has actually been a better team for NHL betting gamblers on the road than at home. For some reason the Canucks have not been strong on home ice this season for gamblers making a NHL bet. The Canucks are just inside the Top 10 on offense as NHL betting numbers indicate and just outside the Top 10 on defense. Those NHL betting stats should be enough to get them into the playoffs. Daniel Sedin has been leading the team in points this season as NHL betting numbers show. He also leads the team in shots. Willie Mitchell has been the plus/minus leader as NHL betting stats indicate. Roberto Luongo leads the team in wins and goals against average.
Six of the last ten meetings between the two teams have gone under the NHL betting total. At Vancouver, the over/under is 2-2 in the last four meetings.
