Ottawa Senators vs San Jose Sharks prediction

The Ottawa Senators have been the better team this season, obviously, and should be favored. The Sharks have been a mess since the start, and there’s no reason to consider them in their current form. However, let’s not act like the Senators are world beaters, and they made moves at the deadline that suggests they’ve thrown in the white towel. Laying -200 prices with the Senators on the road is nuts. Yes, the San Jose Sharks are awful and haven’t won a game in nearly a month. Still, we’re getting big plus money with the home team. I’ll close my eyes and take a shot with the Sharks at home.
