The Colorado Avalanche and the Seattle Kraken meet in NHL action in game six of their Western Conference quarterfinal matchup from Climate Pledge Arena on Friday. Let’s dive into the odds, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.


Colorado is a -150 road favorite while Seattle is a +130 home underdog. The total for this game is set at 6 goals

Matchup History

Seattle’s 3-2 win in game five last time out made it back-to-back wins for Seattle in this head-to-head matchup against the Avalanche.


Colorado is 39-14 in their last 53 road games and 157-75 in their last 232 games overall while the under is 5-1 in their last 6 games against the Pacific division. Seattle is 3-8 in their last 11 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600 and 5-2 in their last 7 games following a win while the under is 7-1 in their last 8 games overall.


I’m backing the under here. The under has been the dominant trend between these two teams in a lot of the meetings between these two since Seattle’s inception into the NHL last season and I just don’t see anything changing in this matchup with so much at stake on both sides. Give me the under here.
