The set-up: San Jose beat Colorado 6-2 at home, before then falling 4-0 to the Avs in its next outing. Vegas has won four in a row now and while it's getting excellent goaltending of late, I'll point out that it's just 2-6 in its last eight road games after a three-games or longer unbeaten streak.
The pick: Not surprisingly, the Sharks play with revenge here, most recently falling 3-1 to the Knights in mid February (San Jose is 6-3 in its last nine in trying to revenge a two-goals or greater loss to an opponent as well.) The conditions seem correct for a tight competitive affair.

828 Ball State at Toledo
The Cardinals beat Toledo 81-67 earlier in Muncie. Ball State had its season best 38.1 defensive effective field goal percentage. Also a season low in holding the Rockets to a 15.2 offensive rebounding percentage. The Cardinals are off its best game of the season, a 100-65 victory over Eastern Michigan. So we can see a major letdown here.
On Tuesday the Rockets crushed Central Michigan everywhere but the scoreboard in a 81-79 defeat. Toledo had a season low 14.3 offensive rebounding percentage and permitted 18 of 31 from two point range defensively. That’s just a no show performance by the Rockets, and we called it with our free play on Tuesday. Now having lost three of six games, Tod Kowalczky will have his team well prepared to lay some whoop ass, before starting the conference tournament.
