The Ottawa Senators and the Seattle Kraken meet in NHL action from Climate Pledge Arena on Thursday night. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.
Seattle is a -140 home favorite while Ottawa is a +120 road underdog. The total for this game is set at 6 goals.
For Ottawa, Cam Talbot is back on the shelf with a lower body injury while Seattle has Vince Dunn listed as questionable for this game with an upper body injury.
Seattle’s 8-4 win back on January 7th, 2023, made it back-to-back wins for the Kraken in this head-to-head matchup.
Ottawa is 5-1 in their lats 6 games overall and 17-36 in their last 53 games against a team with a winning record while the over is 5-1 in their last 6 games against the Pacific division. Seattle is 5-0 in their last 5 games overall and 7-3 in their last 10 games against the Atlantic division while the over is 3-1-1 in their last 5 home games.
I’m backing Seattle here. The Senators took one on the chin against Chicago and now have to drag themselves out for a west coast road trip and this is a far from ideal first opponent as the Kraken have been playing extremely well as of late. I just think the Kraken with a reasonable price at home is the way to go here so I’ll back the Kraken here.
