Bet Tonight's NHL Action

As of Tuesday afternoon, 56 percent of public bets are siding with the visiting Sharks. Online wager info also shows that 63 percent of bets are being placed on the over.

This is the first meeting this season between the two squads. St. Louis has won the last three games in the series, while the Blues are 6-4 in the last 10 meetings. The under has gone 5-3-2.

San Jose comes in winners of two straight and four of its last five. The Sharks are 6-4 in their last 10 games, while the under is 7-3. St. Louis has dropped three consecutive games and are 5-5 over the last 10. The under has gone 6-4.

The over is 3-1-2 in the last six meetings overall, but the under is 15-7-2 in the last 24 meetings in St. Louis. Both of these squads are defensive-minded with strong goaltending, but can occasionally have offensive lapses. Shop around to see if you can get the total at 5.5 goals, but even at 5 there is good reasoning behind this ending in a game that stays under the total or at the very least pushes.
