The Sharks are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Winnipeg and the road team is 8-3 in the last 11 meetings. The over is 6-0 in Sharks last 6 games playing on 0 days rest. The over is 3-1-1 in Jets last 5 overall.
The San Jose Sharks and the plus money is worth a look with them riding a five-game winning streak and doing some of their best work on the road. With that said, the Winnipeg Jets remain one of the most trustworthy home teams in the league and don't lose often in the favorite role. We also see home teams usually perform well when returning from a long road trip, and this will be the Jets first home game in 11 days. I give the Jets the edge on their home ice.
