Why San Jose Sharks are a good bet -110?
San Jose is only 3 points behind Calgary in the Pacific Division. The Sharks are well ahead of third place Vegas and their 69 points. San Jose hasn’t just been competitive in their division.
They have a decent 18-13-2-1 road record. Not only that, but San Jose lost by only a single goal, 5-6, to the Bruins in the last matchup. The Sharks should keep this close enough to have a chance in the third period. If San Jose is within a goal in the third, they’ll have a shot to win.

Why Boston Bruins are a good bet -110?
Boston lost 1-2 in a shootout to St. Louis on Feb. 23. Before the loss, they had won 7 straight. Among the more impressive wins was beating San Jose 6-5 in overtime in San Jose, and taking down Vegas 3-2 in a shootout in Vegas.
The Bruins are playing as well as any team in NHL. Even the loss to St. Louis isn’t all that worrisome because Boston pushed the Blues on their ice. Boston should beat San Jose on Tuesday night and it shouldn’t take overtime for them to do it.

San Jose Sharks at Boston Bruins Final Analysis
San Jose’s playing well, but their form’s not nearly as impressive as Boston’s. The Bruins had not only won 7 in a row before the loss to St. Louis, they had gone 9-1 on the moneyline in the previous 10 games before battling St. Louis.
The Bruins beat San Jose on the road in the last matchup. They should most definitely beat the Sharks on their own ice. Boston’s the play.
