The home team has had a slight edge, securing three wins compared to the two claimed by the visiting team. When it comes to betting statistics, the Sharks have proven to be the more reliable pick against the spread, covering it in four out of the five games, while the Jets have only managed to do so once. In terms of the over-under betting line, the majority of these matchups have trended towards lower scoring games, with the under hitting four times and the over only once. Delving into the specifics, the Sharks have had a challenging time with their power play, particularly noticeable in the most recent game where they failed to capitalize on two opportunities. Conversely, the Jets have displayed efficiency in their power play, converting their sole chance in the same game. The Sharks have shown strength in faceoffs, winning the majority in the last game, which is a consistent trend as they also won the faceoff battle in three out of the five previous games.

The most recent game between the two teams took place on January 4, 2024, where the Winnipeg Jets narrowly defeated the San Jose Sharks with a final score of 2-1.

San Jose Sharks vs. Winnipeg Jets Predictions

The Winnipeg Jets are entering this game with a solid record, sitting comfortably in the upper echelon of the Western Conference. They’ve been particularly strong at home, boasting a 17-7-2 record at the Canada Life Centre. The Jets are coming off a win and will be looking to build on their recent success, despite a slight dip in their scoring rate over the last few games. Key players like Kyle Connor and Mark Scheifele have been instrumental this season, with Connor leading the team in goals and Scheifele in assists and points.

On the other side of the ice, the San Jose Sharks have struggled throughout the season, finding themselves near the bottom of the standings. However, they have shown some resilience against the spread, covering it in four out of their last five games. The Sharks will be relying on the likes of Fabian Zetterlund and Mikael Granlund to spark their offense, with Granlund leading the team in assists and points. Defensively, both teams have had their challenges, but the Jets have the edge with a league-leading average of goals against per game.

This matchup will also feature some interesting player battles, particularly in the goaltending department. The Jets’ Connor Hellebuyck has been a wall in net, and his performance will be critical if the Jets are to continue their dominance at home. The Sharks, meanwhile, will need a strong showing from their goaltender to keep the game competitive. With the Jets favored to win, the Sharks will have to overcome their underdog status and try to exploit any weaknesses in the Jets’ armor to come away with a surprise victory.

San Jose Sharks vs. Winnipeg Jets Pick

The Winnipeg Jets have demonstrated a strong performance at home this season, with a 17-7-2 record at the Canada Life Centre, and they are coming into this game on the back of a win. Their overall record and standing in the Western Conference suggest a level of consistency and resilience that the San Jose Sharks have struggled to match. The Jets’ ability to maintain a league-leading average in goals against per game, coupled with their recent victory, positions them as the clear favorites in this matchup. Furthermore, key players like Kyle Connor and Mark Scheifele have been reliable contributors to the team’s success, and their continued offensive production will likely be a deciding factor in the outcome of the game.

While the Sharks have covered the spread in recent games, their overall win-loss record, especially as the underdog, does not inspire confidence in their ability to secure a win against a team of the Jets’ caliber. The historic head-to-head data also favors the home team, with the Jets having won two of the last five encounters. Given the current form and statistical advantages, including the Jets’ strong defensive play and the Sharks’ challenges in converting power play opportunities, the Winnipeg Jets moneyline bet is the more compelling choice for this game.

The Pick: Winnipeg Jets -385. (BetRivers)
