Sharks at Ducks odds, lines, picks and predictions

Prediction

Sharks 4, Ducks 3

Money line

The SHARKS (+122) are worth a look in this road outing as San Jose looks to snap a six-game winless streak. Facing the Ducks (-150) might just be what the doctor ordered as San Jose is 4-1 in the past five skates on The Pond in Anaheim. The road team has cashed in five straight in this series, too.

Against the spread

The Sharks +1.5 (-205) will cost you over two times your potential return if you would like a little insurance, and that’s just too steep of a price.

PASS, and focus on the money line.

Over/Under

OVER 5.5 (-125) is the way to go here as both netminders have been extremely giving lately. Yes, the Under is 5-1-1 in the past seven meetings, but sometimes trends are made to be broken. The Over has hit in four straight for the Ducks, and that is expected to continue against Reimer. Gibson has allowed 19 goals across four February starts, so the Sharks offense should find plenty of blood in the water here.
