Oddsmakers from online sports book SBGGLOBAL.com have made the Canucks –172 money line favorites over the Sharks, who are +158 on the ML. The over/under for tonight’s Game 5 is currently sitting at 5.5 goals.
In Game 4 on Sunday, Sami Salo scored two goals to pace the Canucks, while Alexandre Burrows and Ryan Kesler scored one goal apiece. Goaltender Roberto Luongo saved 33 of 35 shots, while San Jose’s Antti Niemi allowed four goals on just 13 shot attempts. Andrew Desjardins and Ryane Clowe each scored a goal apiece for the Sharks.
NHL Playoffs Free Pick: You’ll be laying a pretty penny on the money line but I just don’t see the Canucks losing tonight. According to latest NHL trends, the Sharks are 1-4 in their last five trips to Vancouver, and are 1-4 in their last five games overall against the Canucks. Meanwhile, Vancouver is 16-5 in its last 21 games versus the Pacific and 36-15 in its last 51 games overall. The Canucks are also 5-1 in their last six playoff games when they’re the favorite and 4-0 when they’re the favorite of –151 to –200 on the money line. Vancouver has a tired San Jose team on the ropes and should finish the Sharks off tonight at home.
