LINE MOVEMENT

San Jose opened as a -165 favorite before the line dropped slightly. The over-under has held steady at 5.5 goals. The line can be found anywere from -155 to -165 at various books, while the total is also at 6 depending where you look.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of Thursday afternoon, 70 percent of public bets have come in on the Sharks. Online wager info also shows that 53 percent of bets are siding with the over.

INJURY TO WATCH

Blackhawks goaltender Corey Crawford is still out indefinitely with a brain injury. San Jose has two players who are questionable to play -defenseman Justin Braun (illness) and left winger Marcus Sorensen (wrist).

BETTING STRATEGY

The two meetings have been split this season, with each team winning 3-1 on its home ice. The Blackhawks have won six of the past 10 meetings, while the under is 4-0-1 in the last five meetings. Chicago is finally starting to get back on track with wins in three of its last five games. Meanwhile, San Jose had been struggling with three straight road losses before returning home to down Edmonton 5-2 in its last contest. San Jose is 18-9-2-1 at home this season, while the Backhawks are 12-14-4-1 on the road. I simply like how Chicago is playing right now as it still has fight left in its season. San Jose might not be quite as good as its home record. Take the underdog with some nice plus money.
