Sharks vs. Blackhawks Pick 

NHL Predictions: Will Sharks topple the host Blackhawks? 2/23/18

Are the San Jose Sharks going to notch the road win tonight when they are an underdog at the Chicago Blackhawks? The puck drops at 8:30PM ET.

According to oddsmakers at YouWager, the Blackhawks are listed as a -130 favorite to win on the moneyline. The Sharks are a +110 underdog, while the total is set at 5.5 goals. The moneyline and total have both remained where they were when they opened.

Bet Tonight's NHL Action

As of Friday afternoon, 59 percent of bets are coming in on the visiting Sharks. Online wager info also states that 63 percent of public bets are being placed on the over.

This is the first meeting this season between the two teams. San Jose won two of three meetings last season, but Chicago won the lone game on its home ice by a count of 4-1. The Blackhawks are 14-14-3-0 at home this season, while the Sharks are 16-11-3-2 on the road. The last 10 meetings are even at 5-5, while the under has gone 5-4-1.

San Jose was embarrassed last night to the tune of 7-1 at the Predators. It ended a three-game winning streak. The Sharks are 6-4 over their last 10 contests, while the under has gone 5-4-1. Chicago has won two of its last three games including a 3-2 home shootout victory over the Senators last time out. The Blackhawks are 2-8 over their last 10 games, while the under is 5-4-1.

Even though the Blackhawks have won two of their last three games, I can't ignore the fact that they were brutal for a lengthy period of time before this. Although the Sharks come in with no rest and an awful loss last night, they are a good enough squad to bounce back against a Chicago squad that has been no better than mediocre at home during the 2017-18 campaign. Take the visitors as a reasonably priced underdog.
