Bet NHL Action For Saturday, March 10, 2018


San Jose opened as a -135 favorite before the line was bet up, while the total has remained at 5.5 goals. The Sharks are still a -135 fave at some books, while at others such as YouWager they are at -140. The Capitals are anywhere between a +120 and +125 underdog. The total is at 5.5 everywhere.


As of Saturday morning, 57 percent of public bets are coming in on San Jose. Online wager info also shows that 57 percent of bets are being placed on the over.


Washington right winger Tom Wilson (head) is probable to play today. For the Sharks, center Melker Karlsson (lower body) is questionable to play. Right winger Joel Ward (upper body) and Joe Thornton (knee) are both out indefinitely.


As noted in the last Capitals writeup prior to their 3-1 loss at the Kings two days ago, they are any average to mediocre team on the road as they are now 14-14-4-1 away from home. San Jose is 20-10-2-1 at home this season. Washington has dropped its last four road contests, while the Sharks have won five of their last six at home. The Capitals won the first meeting this season by a count of 4-1 on their home ice in December, so San Jose will be looking to set the record straight here. The Sharks have won seven of the last 10 meetings and had won four in a row in the series prior to this season's first matchup. Take the hosts with confidence here.
