The Dallas Stars and the Seattle Kraken meet in game four of their Western Conference semi-final matchup in NHL action from Climate Pledge Arena on Tuesday. Let’s dive into the odds, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.


Dallas is a -140 road favorite while Seattle is a +120 home underdog. The total for this game is set at 5.5 goals.

Matchup History

Seattle’s 7-2 win in game three made it three wins in the last four head-to-head meetings for the Kraken against Dallas.


Dallas is 11-4 in their last 15 games overall and 12-5 in their last 17 road games while the over is 3-0-1 in their last 4 games overall. Seattle is 5-2 in their last 7 games overall and 10-4 in their last 14 games against the Central division while the over is 5-2 in their last 7 Tuesday games.


I’m backing the Kraken here. Normally this does feel like a bounce back spot for Dallas in what’s likely expected to be a close series. However, the Kraken looked really good in game three and I just don’t know what to make of the Dallas Stars right now. The talent is definitely there, but Seattle just seems to show up and provide value when it’s not expected, so give me the Kraken here.
