NHL Picks for May 20th (Canucks vs Sharks Game 3)


After starting the season 4-0 in GOM’s I dropped my second straight last night.  VERY disappointed, but it happens and I’m ready to move on and get some more winners… I am still up a lot of money betting on the NHL this season.

I was on the OVER 5.5 (+106) in last night’s game… click here for the write up.

Lets get right back in tonight’s game…. both of the plays are system plays at Sports Picks King, but I got the okay to share them both as I had them as personal picks as well before looking into the system.

Vancouver Canucks @ San Jose Sharks – SHARKS TO WIN (-116) and OVER 5.5 GOALS (+110)

Vancouver took both games at home, and the Sharks will need to do the same if they want to avoid heading back to Vancouver down 3-1.  It is going to have to start tonight for the Sharks, who need to set aside their 7-3 loss and play more discipline hockey tonight.  The good news for the Sharks is that their top players haven’t seemed to find their spot early in this series yet, and if they can get going they will match up nicely with the Canucks.  Returning home should get the Sharks going who are 106-51 in their last 157 home games.  The Sharks are 21-8 in their last 29 games as a favorite, and 6-1 in their last 7 playoff games as a favorite of -110 to -150.  Also note that the Sharks rebound well from getting embarrassed – San Jose is 37-14 in their last 51 games following a loss of 3 goals or more and 38-15 in their last 53 after allowing 5 goals or more in their previous game.  The home team is 11-5 in these two teams last 16 meetings, and the Canucks are just 2-6 in their last 8 meetings in San Jose.  The OVER is a perfect 4-0 in the Sharks last 4 following a loss of 3 or more goals, and 20-8-4 in their last 32 games as a home favorite of -110 to -150.  The OVER is also a perfect 4-0 in these two teams last 4 meetings in San Jose and 6-2 in their last 8 meetings overall.  Expect some goals by both teams in this one, but I think the Sharks come back with a statement game tonight and get themselves right back into the series.

Good Luck Tonight!
