The San Jose Sharks aren’t playing well, and things usually don’t improve for them on the road. However, the Anaheim Ducks have been one of the worst teams in the league from the start, as the offense doesn’t score and the defense cant get stops. At least the Sharks can find the back of the net. Give me the Sharks and the cheap price. Backing the Ducks isn’t an option.
