Oddsmakers from online sports book SBGGLOBAL.com have made the Sharks -140 favorites and the Red Wings +120 underdogs in Sunday night's contest. The over/under total for tonight’s game is currently set at 5.5 goals.
After three consecutive losses by one goal each with two of them coming in overtime, Detroit finally found its way to the winner's circle with a 4-3 victory in Game 4 as Darren Helm scored a late game-winning goal for the Red Wings. Nicklas Lidstrom scored two goals in the game for the Red Wings as they jumped out to a 3-0 lead before a Sharks comeback.
According to the latest NHL trends, San Jose is 13-8 against the spread versus Detroit over the last three seasons. Thirteen of 21 games in this series have gone over the total during the last three seasons.
NHL Playoff Picks: Detroit played much better in its two home games than it did in San Jose, but with nothing left to lose now I think it plays its best road game of the series. Most people counted out the Red Wings after Game 2 or Game 3, yet this is an experienced Detroit team with the veterans needed if an unbelievable comeback is in the cards. Detroit knows if it can get this back to Joe Louis Arena for Game 6, anything is possible. I am picking the Red Wings +120
