The San Jose Sharks have been diving on the Pacific Division rankings, with a score of 4-5-1 in their last 10 games. Things aren’t going to get any easier for them tonight as they hit the road against the Washington Capitals, who have also struggled at the end of the year, with a 3-5-2 scoreline in their last 10 games.
Washington vacated San Jose in the game in November, beating them 4-0 in San Jose. The sharks will have a chance to exact their revenge in Washington tonight.
Let’s take a look at odds via WynnBET for tonight’s crossover match.
The capitals were one of the hottest teams in December, but their stats match their record since the start of 2022. They are 15th in CORSI rate, 18th in dangerous scoring chances. high danger and 10th for chances to score high danger head to head.
Washington is the more talented team, but their numbers at the end of the day don’t prove them to be the favorite -220 ($220 bet to make $100).
I think the Sharks are good enough to keep this one close. I recommend staying away from betting on the Capitals until they figure out their problem.
