San Jose Sharks Betting Tips Predictions 

The NHL first arrived in the Bay Area in 1967 when the California Seals were one of the six expansion franchises that helped double the league in size from six to 12 teams. The Seals went through a variety of names – the Oakland Seals and California Golden Seals – but never won a single playoff series or a regular following and were relocated to Cleveland in 1976.

San Jose brought the Bay Area back into big-league hockey in 1991 and were an immediate smash hit. Their eye-catching teal uniforms and cartoon Shark logo made the Sharks popular long before they were winning on the ice. San Jose won a playoff series in their third season, and unlike the Seals, developed a fanatic fanbase from the get-go. Though they’ve never won a Stanley Cup, it would be wrong to suggest that the Sharks haven’t been successful.

The Sharks have performed admirably on home ice for years now, which is the main reason your returns won’t be too high on home, moneyline bets. But include it as a bigger parlay bet and the bigger returns will start to fall in place. 

San Jose is led by one of the best – if not the best – defenseman in the NHL. Brent Burns is a dominant force and is as good going forward as he is defending his own goal. Joe Thornton and Patrick Marleau have led San Jose for ages and are legends in their own right. Unfortunately for Sharks fans and NHL fans alike, both superstars are coming to the twilight years of their careers. 

So futures bets may be out of the question for the immediate future. Partaking in one of the most improved and fastest developing divisions in hockey, the Sharks are up against fast, skilled, young competition on a regular basis. The Calgary Flames and Edmonton Oilers show vast promise, while the Los Angeles Kings and Anaheim Ducks are perennial contenders. 

Before making your Sharks bets, delve into their top player’s Corsi Ratings

Taking the Top Seeds

The Sharks are usually favorites in the playoffs, especially for the first round. But how does their adjusted efficiency margin compare to other top seeds?  Are they the big favorites most pundits say they are or is there a chance their less-favored opposition could upset them? 

If they come up against a number six, seven or eighth seed in the postseason, dig into the advanced analytics to make sure they’ll live up to their usual lofty expectations. 

10-Game Metrics

And, as always, ensure you analyze both teams 10-game form before placing a bet on, or against, the Sharks. It’s always a good metric, one that offers insight into how the team is performing in the last three to four weeks. Five games is a bit too short, but 10 games is just right.
