NHL Handicapper Free Betting Pick: San Jose Sharks at Edmonton Oilers

San Jose at Edmonton -130 O/U 5
Recommendation: Edmonton

I picked the Edmonton Oilers to win this series and even after the team suffered through an embarrassing 7-0 Game 4 road loss, my opinion remains. The series is tied 2-2 and the Oilers will enjoy home ice advantage with the series now down to a best-of-three. Edmonton is 10-1 in its last 11 home games which is a track record that shouldn’t be discounted. And they will almost assuredly come out of the gate with energy following that horrendous Game 4 loss. San Jose’s durability and its energy level may be challenged the remainder of the series. The Sharks, who went went to the Stanley Cup Finals last season, are an aging team. I think the longer this series goes, the edge swings toward Edmonton's youth which has been able to make San Jose look a step slow for portions of this series. It’s worth noting San Jose has a porous 2-7 road record in its last nine road games and I think they are running into a buzzsaw tonight with the Oilers looking to bounce back on home ice. I expect Edmonton to do just that and will lay the moderate price with the home chalk.

NHL Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Montreal Canadiens at San Jose Sharks

Montreal at San Jose -135 O/U 5
Recommendation: San Jose


The Montreal Canadiens have made an annual habit of great early season starts but then regress some once December hits. I think they may follow a similar pattern this season with a very difficult West Coast trip currently taking place. It started on Tuesday with a tough 2-1 loss to the Ducks. Montreal has to rely on strong defense and the tremendous goaltending by star Carey Price to win games but this squad is developing some bad habits in terms of allowing too many quality chances and shots. They’ve allowed 30+ shots on goal in three of their last four games and it’s tough to win hockey games when the opposition is shooting that much rubber at the net. And Montreal’s usually strong penalty killing unit has struggled more of late allowing a power play goal in three of their last five games. San Jose enters this game on a roll winning five of six including victories against quality foes such as Chicago and Los Angeles. The Sharks have seemingly rectified their home ice struggles from last season with an 8-3 mark entering tonight’s game. The Sharks are getting strong Read more

Los Angeles at San Jose -135 O/U 5
Recommendation: San Jose


The NHL drops the puck on the 2016-17 season tonight as defending Western Conference champs the San Jose Sharks host their hated rivals the Los Angeles Kings. The last time we saw these two clubs battle was in the first round of last year’s playoffs with San Jose cruising to a 4-1 series victory en route to their first ever Campbell Bowl Trophy and Stanley Cup Final appearance. Los Angeles is starting off the campaign a bit short handed up front. Forward Tanner Pearson is out while serving a two-game suspension for an illegal hit to the head in a preseason game, veteran winger Marian Gaborik will miss due to a foot injury, and center Nick Shore questionable after missing some exhibition games with what is believed to be a concussion. San Jose returns the bulk of its key players that led them to the finals and added a pair of solid possession forwards in David Schlemko and Mikkel Boedker. While the home team has lost nine of the last 10 meetings between these clubs, the team that lost in the Stanley Cup Final the previous season has gone 5-1 in the next season's debut over the last six Read more

NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs Betting Pick: San Jose Sharks vs. Los Angeles Kings

Los Angeles vs. San Jose
Series Recommendation: San Jose +130


Two hated Pacific Division rivals clash in this first series. Los Angeles and San Jose faced one another two postseasons ago with the Sharks suffering a historic collapse after taking a 3-0 series lead. The Kings won four straight en route to their second Stanley Cup in three years. That series loss was the catalyst for San Jose to fire coach Todd McLellan and infuse youth within lockerroom. Now this team is hungry and ready to make another run into the playoffs after a one-year rebuild. The Kings also look primed and ready to make a deep postseason push after missing out on the playoffs last year. They became the first team since the 2007-08 Carolina Hurricanes to miss the postseason a year removed from winning the Stanley Cup.

Both of these teams are built in similar fashion with big, strong forwards up front who have the skills to score but also the toughness to bang bodies along the boards. They each have very dangerous power play attacks and neither club takes a ton of dumb penalties. However, given the nature and history of this rivalry, we will definitely see our fair share Read more

San Jose +105 at St. Louis O/U 5
Recommendation: San Jose


The San Jose Sharks continue their post-All-Star Break, four-game road trip with a matchup against the St. Louis Blues tonight. The Sharks are in second place in the Pacific Division with 56 points and have won eight of their last 11 games. St. Louis is close to getting their full roster back from injury with only goaltender Jake Allen (knee) and Jaden Schwartz (ankle) out indefinitely. Schwartz has been out since mid-October but could be ready to join the club in a couple of weeks after showing positive signs during recent practices. The Blues have done well in the Central despite fighting the injury bug all season. They’ve won six of their last nine and trail second place Dallas by only three points with two games in hand. The Sharks have been a much better road team this season than at home, with a 16-7-2 record overall including three of their last four. Balanced scoring has been a strong spot for the Sharks with 15 different players scoring at least one goal over their last 10 games. Goaltender Martin Jones has won six of his last eight starts with a 2.37 goals against and a .916 Read more

Calgary +100 at New Jersey O/U 5
Recommendation: Calgary


The New Jersey Devils return home after a four-game road trip to host the Calgary Flames at the Prudential Center. Both clubs enter this contest losing three of their last five games but the Devils are struggling to find consistent scoring while Calgary's defensive woes have spoiled their recent outburst of offensive production. The Flames lost to division rival San Jose last week 5-4 in a contest where they outshot the Sharks 35-18. The off night by goaltender Karri Ramo, who played all 60 minutes and made 13 saves, forced head Bob Hartley to turn to veteran netminder Jonas Hiller for the next two games. Hiller, who hadn't started for the Flames since December 12th, split the pair of games. He first posted a 15-save shutout in a 6-0 blowout victory over the red hot Florida Panthers and then made 35 stops in a tough 2-1 shootout loss to Edmonton. The 33-year-old Swiss goalie will start once again against the Devils where he holds a 2-2-2 lifetime record. New Jersey will counter in net with Cory Schneider, who is 4-5 in his career versus Calgary with most of his starts coming as a member of the Read more

San Jose at Los Angeles -165 O/U 5
Recommendation: Over


Two Pacific Division rivals clash before the Christmas break as the San Jose Sharks travel down to battle the Los Angeles Kings. This game will wrap up a five-game road trip for the Sharks who have lost nine of their last 12 games overall. The defense has been very inconsistent of late allowing 30 or more shots on net in five of their last seven games and allowing exactly four goals in six of their last eight contests. Los Angeles has gone on a 1-3 run after winning six straight games. They return home after splitting a six-game road trip out East, allowing 40 or more shots in two of their last five. These two clubs have split the first two meetings this season, with the Kings winning the last match-up a month ago 4-1, avenging their opening night 5-1 loss. ‎I expect both clubs to be fatigued here with the holiday break on deck. The Sharks are on a 7-3 O/U run in their last 10 and at the current price of 5 with slight juice towards the over, they’re prime to add to it. Play this one over the total.

NHL Handicapper Free Play: Chicago Blackhawks at New York Islanders

Chicago -115 at NY Islanders O/U 5
Recommendation: Chicago


The New York Islanders open up a new chapter in their franchise's history as they will play their first ever season in the Barclays Center against the defending Stanley Cup Champion Chicago Blackhawks. The Isles move to Brooklyn after 43 seasons at the Nassau Coliseum. Many of the team's members still live on Long Island and the club uses the LIRR (Long Island Railroad) to travel into their new borough, changing their game-day routines significantly from prior seasons at the Coliseum. This will take some adjustment as I don’t peg them to have much of a home-ice advantage early on. For the Blackhawks, who are coming off a loss to the the Rangers, they will be happy to avoid Long Island, as they lost in 5 of their final 6 games at Nassau Coliseum and now they will look to start a new streak in Brooklyn. The Islanders will start backup Thomas Greiss in this contest, as starter Jaroslav Halak is out with an upper-body injury. The German-born netminder has only faced the Hawks once in his career, back in 2009 as a member of the San Jose Sharks, as he allowed 3 goals on 12 shots in a relief Read more

Florida at Los Angeles -185 O/U 5
Recommendation: Under


Two of the biggest under teams in the NHL meet up tonight in LA as the Florida Panthers visit the Kings.  These teams have played their last five meetings under the total.  The Panthers have proven throughout the year that scoring goals consistently is a tough task but they also limit their opponents on opportunities.  Yes, Florida has been great offensively over its last four games, but the pace and matchup tonight against the Kings will send them back to reality.  The Panthers not respond well to teams that grind along the boards.  The Kings are the prototypical grind-it-out squad that beat you with depth and strength along the boards.  Los Angeles averages just 2.44 gpg and allowed only 2.11 gpg so don't expect the Kings to run over the Panthers either.  The return of Kopitar into the Kings lineup has helped on offensive end of the ice, but more importantly on the defensive end as well.  Having that big body presence in the lineup makes this defense even more formidable.  Both teams are relatively healthy so I expect a tight checking, low scoring Read more

San Jose at Washington -110 O/U 5.5
Recommendation: Under


Totals of 5.5 involving the Washington Capitals these days are simply too high and are close to an “auto play” for me as a bettor. My clients and I cashed an under ticket in Washington's season opener against Montreal that yielded a 2-1 final. The Caps then shut out Boston 4-0 (total of 5) in their second game. This was a porous defensive team for years which is a big reason why Barry Trotz was selected as their new head coach. His teams are notorious for playing strong defensive hockey and keeping the puck out of the net. The total on tonight's game has been bumped back up to 5.5 largely because of the offensive potency of San Jose but Trotz's squad has clearly bought into playing defense at a high level which was a hallmark of his teams in Nashville. San Jose has scored 7 goals in their first two games against Winnipeg and Los Angeles but both games stayed under the total because the Sharks pitched shutouts. San Jose doesn't get enough credit for its defensive prowess and they’ll likely look to bring that same defensive mindset to this game as they go on the road for the Read more
