Historic Head-to-Head Stats and Analysis

Over the last two seasons, the Dallas Stars and San Jose Sharks have faced each other four times, with each team securing two victories. The home team has had the upper hand, winning three out of these four encounters. When it comes to betting statistics, the San Jose Sharks have proven to be the more reliable pick against the spread, covering it in three out of the four games, while the Dallas Stars have only managed to cover once. The total score has tended to be on the higher side, with the Over hitting three times compared to the Under hitting just once. In terms of game performance, the Stars have shown a stronger offensive presence with a total of 15 goals across the four games, compared to the Sharks’ 14 goals. The Stars also had a higher number of shots on goal in three out of the four games, indicating a more aggressive offensive strategy. However, the Sharks have demonstrated resilience, particularly in their shot-blocking efforts, where they outperformed the Stars in three out of the four games.

The most recent game between the two teams, played on March 2, 2024, ended in a 3-2 victory for the Dallas Stars after a shootout. Despite the close scoreline, the Stars dominated in shots on goal with 38 compared to the Sharks’ 23, and they also won significantly more faceoffs, securing 43 wins to the Sharks’ 21. The Sharks, however, were more effective in blocking shots, with 22 blocks against the Stars’ 17. The game saw a back-and-forth scoring pattern, with William Eklund of the Sharks opening the scoring, followed by goals from the Stars’ Radek Faksa and Filip Zadina. Jason Robertson of the Stars scored the game-tying goal, leading to the shootout where the Sharks’ Matt Duchene and Anthony Duclair scored, but it was not enough to secure a win as Jamie Benn’s lone shootout goal for the Stars contributed to their victory. The Sharks’ goaltender, Magnus Chrona, made an impressive 36 saves with a save percentage of 0.947, while the Stars’ Jake Oettinger saved 21 shots with a save percentage of 0.913. Despite the loss, the Sharks covered the spread as underdogs, and the total score stayed under the closing over-under line of 6.5.

Dallas Stars vs. San Jose Sharks Predictions

The Dallas Stars are riding high with a strong season performance, sitting comfortably in playoff contention. With a balanced attack led by Jason Robertson, who leads the team with 60 points, and Roope Hintz, the top goal scorer with 24 goals, the Stars have been formidable opponents on the ice. Their offensive prowess is backed by solid goaltending from Jake Oettinger, who has been a reliable last line of defense. The Stars’ ability to perform both at home and on the road, boasting an 18-9-5 record in away games, makes them a tough matchup for any team.

On the other side of the ice, the San Jose Sharks have had a season to forget, with only 15 wins to their name. Despite the struggles, players like Mikael Granlund have been bright spots, leading the team with 36 points. The Sharks have faced challenges in both scoring and defense, often finding themselves outshot and outplayed. However, they have shown moments of resilience and will look to players like Fabian Zetterlund, their leading goal scorer, to ignite their offense against the Stars’ defense.

This game presents a key opportunity for the Stars to maintain their momentum as they prepare for the postseason. For the Sharks, it’s a chance to evaluate their roster and play for pride in front of their home crowd. Key matchups to watch include the Stars’ potent offense against the Sharks’ goaltender, who will need to have an exceptional game to keep the scoreline competitive. The Stars will also need to be wary of the Sharks’ potential to capitalize on any mistakes, as they look to upset the odds and deliver a shock win.

Dallas Stars vs. San Jose Sharks Pick

Given the stark contrast in both teams’ performances this season, the Dallas Stars moneyline bet is the logical choice. The Stars have proven to be a formidable force on the road with an 18-9-5 record, showcasing their ability to deliver consistent performances away from home. Their offensive strength, led by Jason Robertson and Roope Hintz, has been a key factor in their success, and against a Sharks team that has struggled defensively, this trend is likely to continue. Additionally, the Stars’ recent head-to-head record against the Sharks, including a shootout victory in their last encounter, demonstrates their ability to edge out close games against this opponent.

While the Sharks have covered the spread in three out of their last four meetings with the Stars, their current form suggests they may not be able to replicate this success. The Sharks are on a seven-game losing streak, and their overall win percentage of 0.25 is indicative of the challenges they’ve faced throughout the season. The Stars, on the other hand, are on a two-game winning streak and have a much stronger win percentage of 0.587. Considering these factors, along with the Sharks’ inability to find consistent scoring and the Stars’ solid goaltending, the Dallas Stars moneyline bet is the recommended pick for this matchup.

The Pick: Dallas Stars -385 (BetRivers)
