Avalanche Vs Sharks Betting Predictions – NHL Divisional Finals Game 7
Colorado Avalanche vs San Jose Sharks Betting Preview
I can’t help getting pumped every time we get a Game 7 in the Stanley Cup playoffs. The San Jose Sharks and the Colorado Avalanche are set to clash on Wednesday Night with a ticket to the Western Conference finals on the line. It’s going to be a sweet matchup, so let’s see what odds we are getting for this series finale.
Colorado Avalanche vs San Jose Sharks Game Info
- Date: Wednesday, May 8, 2019
- Game Time: 9:00 PM ET
- Venue: SAP Center, San Jose, CA
- TV: NBCSN
- Series: Tied 3-3
MyBookie is giving is San Jose at -140 to bet on the money line. The odds opened with the Sharks as -130 favorites, but it moved a bit in the last few hours. I don’t think it’s going to get over -140 before the start of the game. There is still a lot of value on the Sharks despite having to lay down $140 to get them to win outright.
Let’s think about it for a second. San Jose was presumably the best team of the two entering the series. No other side recorded more points in the West than the Sharks, except the Calgary Flames. Granted, Colorado sent Calgary home in a massive upset in the first round, but San Jose has shown a lot more of a resistance; even though here we are in a Game 7 scenario.
Why are San Jose Sharks Favorites to Win?
With the odds given by the guys at MyBookie.ag, we are getting 58% of implied probability that the Sharks will win this game. It’s fair to say the chances are not overwhelmingly high; especially considering San Jose is the home team. But that only means we have to invest a little less money to support the favorite.
Colorado will go into San Jose trying to get two wins in a row for the first time in the series, for any of the two teams. The Avalanche stole Game 2 with a 4-3 win already from the SAP Center, but that seems like ages ago. The Avs are listed +120 to win this game and move to the next round. That’s an implied probability of 45%, which is not a bad number by any stretch. In fact, Colorado is getting a lot more respect from the oddsmakers than most teams would get going on the road for a Game 7.
Insider Betting Advice
If you are planning on putting money on the game total, keep in mind four of the six games played in the series, so far, have gotten at least six goals scored. Three of those contests were seven-goal games.
In a Game 7 situation, I always feel more comfortable putting my money on the home team, even if that means laying down a little more than usual.
What’s the bet to place? Sharks -140.
