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


Colorado is a -155 road favorite while Seattle is a +135 home underdog. The total for this game is set at 6 goals.

Matchup History

Colorado’s 3-2 win over Seattle in game two snapped Seattle’s two-game win streak in this head-to-head matchup.


Colorado is 40-11 in their last 51 Saturday games and 13-3 in their last 16 conference quarterfinal games while the over is 5-0 in their last 5 road games. Seattle is 5-1 in their last 6 games against the Central division and 1-7 in their last 8 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600 while the under is 5-0 in their last 5 games overall.


I’m backing the Kraken +1.5 here. You’ll have to pay a bit of juice on it, but I think it’s the best way to go here. I think it’s a one-goal game whichever way it goes and the last six meetings have all been decided by a single tally. This has quietly been one of the tightest series in the playoffs so far and I expect no different. Give me the Kraken +1.5.
