NHL Betting Trends
The over is 9-1 in the last 10 Sharks games playing on two days of rest. San Jose is 4-0 in the last four meetings.
The Devils are 5-0 in their last five games versus a team with a losing record. The under is 4-1-1 in the last six meetings.
The early start time against a West Coast opponent and the fact New Jersey is playing so well right now bodes well for the hosts. Look for the Devils to continue riding Kincaid's hot hand plus an impressive offense that has totaled 11 goals in two games.
