The Seattle Kraken and the Colorado Avalanche meet in game seven of their Western Conference quarterfinal series from the Ball Arena on Sunday. Let’s dive into the odds, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.


Colorado is a -210 home favorite while Seattle is a +180 road underdog. The total for this game is set at 5.5 goals.

Matchup History

Colorado’s 4-1 win in game six snapped Seattle’s two-game win streak in this head-to-head matchup.


Seattle is 11-4 in their last 15 road games and 7-3 in their last 10 games against the Central division while the under is 8-1 in their last 9 games overall. Colorado is 40-17 in their last 57 games against the Pacific division and 35-16 in their last 51 games overall while the under is 4-0-1 in their last 5 home games.


I’m backing the Kraken here. Seattle’s best hockey in this series has been played on the road and while the Avs have the experience and the momentum in a game like this, I think there’s too much value in what’s likely a close game that could potentially need OT. The Kraken have been there nip and tuck every step of the way with the Avalanche and I think the kraken shock the world here. Give me Seattle.
