NHL Hockey Betting Odds:
San Jose Sharks
The Sharks enter tonight’s matchup sporting a 28-13-7 record that nets them 63 points on the season. That 63 point tally just happens to rank San Jose 2nd overall in the Pacific Division. Right now the Pacific is led by the Calgary Flames who have racked up 64 this year. With that in mind, it’s clear that San Jose can take the lead by keeping their current win streak burning. Considering that San Jose is 6-1-3 in their last 10 versus the Coyotes, it’s clear that San Jose shouldn’t have too hard of a time taking care of Arizona on the road this Wednesday night. Looking over the numbers, it’s obvious that Arizona will not be able to maintain San Jose’s pace. Right now the Sharks rank 3rd in scoring and 13th in goals allowed. For comparison, Arizona ranks 29th in scoring but 10th in goals allowed.
Players to Watch: Brent Burns (9 G, 43 A, 52 PTS.), Logan Couture (16 G, 26 A, 26 PTS.), and Erick Karlsson (3 G, 39 A, 42 PTS.).
The Coyotes charge into this Wednesday night contest sporting a meager 20-22-3 record. This lackluster record grants Arizona 43 points on the season, which ranks them second to last in the Pacific. Although they don’t have much of a shot at the lead in the division, they can at the very least spoil San Jose’s evening. Granted Arizona doesn’t bring much momentum into this matchup as they are 3-3 in their last 6 games.
Players to Watch: Clayton Keller (9 G, 22 A, 31 PTS.), Alex Galchenyuk (7 G, 17 A, 24 PTS.), and Oliver Ekman-Larrson (5 G, 18 A, 23 PTS.).
