The Oilers and Sharks are trending in different directions ahead of their Tuesday night matchup at the SAP Center. Edmonton has gone 3-7 over their last 10 and recently dropped six in a row. San Jose on the other hand is the 4th seed in the West and has won three in a row.
Edmonton is in a tough spot on Tuesday, having to travel to the Shark Tank. This is the Oilers 4th road game in a row although they are a decent 10-10-2 away from their home ice this season. Edmonton isn’t a total lost cause vs. San Jose however as the Edmonton offense has put up 3+ goals in 5 of 7.
Cam Talbot gets the start in net for Edmonton, his 3rd in the last 4 nights. The Oilers may decide to go with Mikko Koskinen by game time in this one. No matter who gets the start, they’re going to have tired defense in front of them. Then again the Sharks are playing in a back-to-back so the fatigue factors may be equal.
San Jose Sharks
San Jose is in a B2B but at least they’ve played the last two games at home. The Sharks are 14-4-2 on their own ice this season although they are 3-3 over the last six. Does Edmonton step up at +180 on Tuesday?
The Sharks burned up their starting goaltender in Monday’s 3-1 win over the Kings so it’s Aaron Dell getting the call in net on Tuesday. Dell gave up 8 goals to Calgary on New Year’s Eve so their might be some worry in that regards for San Jose bettors.
NHL Betting Trends:
- Oilers are 1-5 their last 6 on 1 days rest
- Oilers are 2-7 their last 9 overall
- Sharks are 5-1 their last 6 overall
- Sharks are 12-5 their last 17 at home
- Oilers are 1-4 the last 5 H2H meetings
Free Edmonton Oilers vs. San Jose Sharks NHL Prediction:
The Sharks are at home on Tuesday but also in the tough spot of a B2B with their backup goaltender. There isn’t a whole lot of value when you look at that angle, especially when the Sharks are such whopping -222 favorites. Edmonton has had a night off and their offense is always potent with McDavid, Nugent-Hopkins and Co.
4* Free NHL Betting Pick: Edmonton +180
The Oilers steal this one ahead of a fatigued San Jose team.
