Buffalo is a team that is rarely in real playoff contention. The regular season is no exception, although the Blades started it very well. In their first ten meetings, they scored seven wins and three losses. Alas, their eight-game winless streak put everything back on track. In the last six meetings, the team was able to add to their winning streak with three wins. All of that leaves Buffalo in 14th place in the Eastern Conference standings, and their playoff chances are poor.
San Jose Sharks
San Jose is another team that has been highly disappointing in recent years. It cannot be said that the Californians have a completely inferior roster or are not undergoing a major rebuild. Still, they are failing to produce any real winning results. The Sharks got off to a disastrous start in the regular season, picking up their first win in game six. They haven't seen much action since, and in the last six meetings, they've only managed one win over Montreal 4:0. After such a poor start, San Jose dropped to 13th place in the Western Conference standings.
Expert Betting Tips
Buffalo and San Jose have had a very modest regular season and are unlikely to make the playoffs. At the same time, the Blades approach the rivalry in the best condition. In their last six games, the Blue and Yellow have won three times, while the Sharks have only one win over the same distance. Moreover, the factor of home ice also speaks in favor of Don Granato's wards, so a bet on Buffalo's victory with the odds of about 2.02 is in order.
Buffalo and San Jose are the outsiders of their conferences, who have nothing to lose, so they have every reason to play open and spectacular hockey without risking anything. In the last three games, the Blades scored 30 pucks (10.00 on average per game), so the optimal variant for the prediction seems to be a total of over 6.5 pucks at odds of 1.83, and separately it is worth looking at the bet on the total over 0.5 points of Rasmus Dahlin for 1.8.
