Can anyone tell me why this line is so low? Winnipeg is getting a better number at home tonight against Nashville tonight, and the same amount of points separate the teams. San Jose though is still in the race for winning the Pacific, while Nashville has very little chance of winning their division. I was expecting this line to be higher on Edmonton. My new model though, also says to take Edmonton so I'm on them at +120, but my gut is screaming San Jose. That makes me like Edmonton tonight that much more.

Sometimes when you know your power rankings like I do...you see a game such as this...where your rankings say this is way to low...and your initial reaction is to play on San Jose...but their is a reason it is low...maybe something the odds makers or sharps know...and even though your gut screams San Jose...your wallet will say thank you Edmonton!
My gut was screaming Carolina in the Super Bowl...thought the line was way too low...so I loaded ip on Carolina bet them every which way possible...when I should have been thinking the exact opposite!

If you are using good info to make your power rankings then most of the games will match what your PR say...but a few games will be way off...meaning the sharps and oddsmakers must know something that the statistics don't...always go the way of the sharps and oddsmakers in this instance!
Situationally, things favor the Sharks. The Oilers are coming off of a 4-1 run (all four wins as dogs). Teams in this kind of a spot have performed very poorly vs. the money line in their next game.
