Hockey Betting: Detroit at San Jose at SBG Global

Hockey betting fans will get their cake and eat it too when the Detroit Red Wings go to the Shark Tank to take on the San Jose Sharks on January 17.

Bet on hockey match ups don’t get any better than this as the Wings and the Sharks have been the two best teams in hockey betting so far this season. It’s a classic hockey betting match up of offense versus defense as the high scoring Wings will look to skate over the top of the stingy Sharks defense in this bet on hockey clash of the Titans.

Hockey betting gurus are already calling this game a preview of the Western Conference Finals. And with good reason considering these are two of the top teams in the NHL and the game will feature best offense and defense in hockey betting.

The Wings have so far scored the pants off of the rest of hockey betting competition as they lead the NHL in scoring with 144 goals. On the defensive end of the ice they’ve allowed a pedestrian 111 goals, but as the old bet on hockey saying goes, “the best defense is a good offense” and that’s exactly what hockey betting fans will see in this match up. But more than just scoring goals, what makes this team so potent is the unbelievable distribution of the offense, by far the best in hockey betting. The team has five players with 15 goals or more, and six players in double digits in the same hockey betting category. What’s more, the Wings have nine players with 25 points or more, which means shutting down this bet on hockey scoring juggernaut is an all but impossible task for hockey betting opposing defenses.

But if any team is up for this hockey betting challenge it’s the NHL’s number one defense of the Sharks. The Sharks lead the league in fewest goals allowed with just 87 through 37 games. The main reason for this hockey betting success is the tough backline of this team, one of the best in hockey betting, which consists of veterans Dan Boyle, Rob Blake and  Marc-Edouard Vlasic who all have outstanding +/- differentials. The net keeping of the Sharks has been decent, but with this standout defense keeping opponents on away from the net during the hockey betting, it hasn’t had too much heavy lifting.

On paper this is hockey betting fans dream: #1 offense vs. the #1 defense. But all things being equal the edge goes to the Sharks in this bet on hockey match up. While the Wings have an excellent hockey betting road record (13-4-2-1) the Shark tank is a rotten place to play and in the end defense trumps offense.
