Seattle Kraken Betting Preview
The Seattle Kraken got blown out by the Canucks on Friday and lost a week ago to the Flames in overtime. The Seattle Kraken are averaging 2.77 goals per game and are scoring on 23.5 percent of their power play opportunities. Jared McCann leads Seattle with 9 goals, Vince Dunn has 16 assists, and Jaden Schwartz has 51 shots on goal. Defensively, the Seattle Kraken are allowing 3.45 goals per game and are killing 73.9 percent of their opponent’s power plays. Philipp Grubauer has given up 36 goals on 312 shots faced, while Joey Daccord has allowed 35 goals on 333 shots.
Chicago Blackhawks Betting Preview
The Blackhawks lost to the Blues on Sunday and have won just one game since November 12. The Chicago Blackhawks are averaging 2.58 goals per game and are scoring on 9.7 percent of their power play opportunities. Connor Bedard leads Chicago with 10 goals, Philipp Kurashev has 8 assists and Ryan Donato has 41 shots on goal. Defensively, the Chicago Blackhawks are allowing 3.68 goals per game and are killing 76.7 percent of their opponent’s power plays. Petr Mrazek has given up 32 goals on 335 shots faced, and Arvid Soderblom has allowed 34 goals on 288 shots.
The Seattle Kraken should win this game because they’re the better team on paper, with more of an offensive punch. The Blackhawks have also been a mess for much of the year and their offense struggles, outside of a player or two. With all that said, I’m not laying -200 with a Kraken side on the road that’s lost 5 of their last 8 games. Both of these clubs are down in the dumps at the moment. So if forced to pick, give me the Blackhawks and the potential big plus money.
