Sharks Vs. Golden Knights Predictions | NHL Playoffs 2019 Game 6 Picks
San Jose Sharks Vs. Vegas Golden Knights betting Preview
The San Jose Sharks knew playing against the Vegas Golden Knights might be doomed scenario for them. Facing elimination for the second game in a row, the Sharks must win in Vegas or their great 2018-19 season could come to an end on Sunday. San Jose saw how their 2017-18 season came to an end by the hands of Vegas during last year’s playoffs. The Sharks made the necessary adjustments for that not to happen again, but the situation has repeated itself.
The Sharks won Game 5 with a 5-2 and kept chances alive. San Jose was more engaged in the game and outhit the Knights 33-22. They were also more effective, converting five goals despite recording three fewer shots on the night. The one thing that San Jose did differently was trying to score first. During the Knights wins in Game 2, 3 and 4, Vegas had scored within the first 90 seconds of the match. Now, the table turned with Sharks finding the net early, and that set the tone.
San Jose now will enter a hostile environment in a must-win situation. Vegas has outscored them 11-3 in the games played at the T-Mobile Arena during the playoffs series. I don’t think the Sharks felt they had a shot in any of those games. They were completely outplayed. MyBookie.ag doesn’t have the series price on at the moment, but I’m pretty sure you can find San Jose with long-shot odds of winning the next two games in the series. They received a significant boost from the home crowd in Game 5, but going on the road facing elimination can swallow even the best players.
The guys making the odds at MyBookie do have the future betting lines to win the Stanley Cup. We can find the San Jose Sharks at +2000 at the moment. From the 14 teams still alive, that gives them an implied probability of 5% to win the Cup. After all, they will face elimination in the next two games no matter what. We can also find Vegas at +650 with 14% of chances to finish what they couldn’t conquer last season. The Knights have been extremely aggressive against San Jose in this series. During most the games they have shown an attitude where they feel they are the best team of the two.
We have several plays available for Game 6. Although it’s an elimination game, I expect the trend of goals to continue. Each game in this series has been decided by two goals difference or more. Also, four of the five games had more than six goals scored combined. Those two scenarios should stay the same to take the Knights in the money line and the puck line as well, but also bet the Over in the game total. What’s the play? Vegas Golden Knights -1.5.
