Bruins vs. Sharks Prediction
Will the Bruins' current road winning streak end tonight when they take on the Sharks at 10:00PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Sharks are -135 money line favorites in tonight's matchup versus the Bruins, who have odds of +115 to pull off the small upset. As for the total, the number current sits at 5.5 goals.
Boston is 4-0 in its lat four road games and 5-1 in its last six road games versus a team with a losing home record. But San Jose has won six of its last eight games, is 5-0 in its lat five games playing on two days of rest, and is a perfect 6-0 in its last six games versus teams with winning records.
The Bruins are 0-3-0 this season when playing West Coast teams San Jose, Anaheim and Los Angeles. The Sharks haven't won consecutive home games since a three-game run from January 9 through 16, going 5-3-3 since that point. But that stat is a bit fluky and with Joe Thornton, Joe Pavelski, Brent Burns and Brenden Dillon each posting a goal and an assist in a recent win over the Capitals, San Jose should be able to carry that momentum into a win tonight.
