NHL Wagering: Chicago Blackhawks vs. San Jose Sharks

NHL wagering Saturday features two of the best teams in the west as Chicago meets San Jose in hockey bet action.

NHL wagering fans have gotten great value out of the Blackhawks while the Sharks have not been a profitable hockey bet team despite their great record.  The Blackhawks have been one of the best values on the NHL wagering board all season.

Chicago is a young and up and coming team that is well coached, deep, and confident.  The Blackhawks have shown excellent hockey bet balance as they are strong on both ends of the ice with a 4th place ranking on both offense and defense.

Chicago had a bit of a NHL wagering blip before the all star break, however, as they went just 3-5 in their final 8 hockey bet appearances before the break.  Chicago also went on a NHL wagering under binge as from January 8 through January 21 they failed to go over the total in 8 consecutive games.

Overall Chicago had an NHL wagering record of 25-12-3-5 straight up and 27-18 against the hockey gambling odds.  Patrick Kane was the main NHL wagering asset for the Blackhawks as he led the team in scoring with 42 points.  Both Nikolai Khabibulin and Cristobal Huet have been solid in goal.

Chicago has been solid on special teams with a 9th ranked power play and 9th ranked penalty kill.  With a straight up record of 34-6-4-1 one would think that the San Jose Sharks would be a NHL wagering cash cow but that has not at all been the case.  The Sharks were just 21-24 against the hockey gambling odds.

From January 9 through January 20 the Sharks went on a strong NHL wagering run in which they went 5-1.  San Jose has been phenomenal at home with a NHL wagering record of 22-1-2.

San Jose is such a hot NHL wagering commodity that when they do lose a game it is a severe setback because they are such heavy favorites.  The Sharks were ranked 3rd overall in the league for both offense and defense. has this one for you so be sure and open an account today.
