The San Jose Sharks haven’t been able to get it together after a hot start to the season, losing five of their last eight matchups to fall down to 7-4-1 on the season. They now take on the Winnipeg Jets, who are 6-3-3 after splitting their last six contests overall. These teams seem pretty similar on paper, but let’s take a deeper look to see who has the upper hand right now.

Sharks vs. Jets NHL Betting Odds

San Jose is hot when coming off a big win lately, they are 5-2 in their last seven when winning their previous matchup and undefeated in their past five when allowing the other team to score two goals or less in their last game out. However, the Sharks are just 19-39 straight up in their last 58 games when walking into the matchup as the listed road underdog.

Meanwhile, the Jets are 6-2 straight up in their last eight games when going up against teams in the Western Conference. They have also been consistent on Thursdays, winning four of their last five on that day of the week. Sticking with those last five Thursday games, the over has cashed out four of the last five times as well.

San Jose Sharks

San Jose has been in the middle of the pack offensively this season, scoring three goals per game. Brent Burns leads the team in assists with 10 while Thomas Hertl leads with six goals. They have been solid at the other end of the ice, allowing just 2.5 goals per game to their opponents. They have cycled around between two different goaltenders this season but both have performed incredibly well. Adin Hill has only let in 18 shots on 187 total shots faced on the year. James Reimer has allowed just nine on 167 shots faced. Martin Jones was a big liability for them in net last season as they were second-worst with an .896 save percentage. They’re now seventh in that category at .924.

The Sharks are going through a bit of a dry spell lately as they’ve scored 1.8 goals per game in their last five losses. If they can get their offense going, they’ll be in good shape here.

Winnipeg Jets

Winnipeg is slightly behind the Sharks in the standings but they have the better offensive team. They average 3.2 goals per game with Kyle Connor leading their squad with nine. Nikolaj Ehlers is the team’s leader in shots on net as well with 46. He certainly isn’t one to shy away from attacking when he gets the chance.

Flipping over to their defense, it hasn’t been bad either. They allow 2.67 goals per game but are 17th in terms of save percentage. They expect more out of Connor Hellebuyck. He has allowed 26 goals on 270 shots faced, which is mediocre. He is coming off such a terrific season that many he’d continue to ascend the ranks but he hasn’t. That makes this game a bit of a toss-up.
