For our Maple Leafs vs Kraken NHL Player Props on Sunday, January 21, we have two players, one from each team. The Toronto Maple Leafs travel west to take on the Seattle Kraken after losing four of the last five games, while the Kraken was on a 9-game winning streak but now lost three in a row.

Maple Leafs vs Kraken NHL Player Props – Auston Matthews Over 1.5 Player Points (+160)

Following two games without a point, Auston Matthews recorded seven points in the previous three outings. Four of them were goals, including three against the Calgary Flames. The leading scorer in the NHL with 37 goals is not even the top point-maker in his team, but he likes to play against the Kraken.

In five games against Seattle, Matthews has ten points (five goals and five assists). He faced them once this season, in a 4-3 shootout win, and contributed with a pair of dishes. Considering he averages 2.0 points per game against the Kraken, I think Matthews has a strong chance to add at least two more points on Sunday.

Seattle conceded 12 goals in the last three games. Toronto is scoring 3.50 goals per contest, which is the 6th best offense in the NHL. This pick is certainly not a sure shot, but it has value and is worth trying. Still, be cautious with how much you invest in it.

Oliver Bjorkstrand Over 2.5 Shots on Goal (-125)

I’d put much more money on this pick. Oliver Bjorkstrand leads Seattle in points (36) and in shots on goals (121). On average, Bjorkstrand has 2.68 shots on goal per game, but what excites me the most about this pick is his latest form and the performance in the previous meeting against the Maple Leafs.

Namely, Bjorkstrand averages 3.0 shots on goal per contest over the last seven games. Even though he scored just one goal in that span, Seattle’s forward is always active on offense. Now, what about this fact? In one H2H duel with the Maple Leafs this year, Bjorkstrand registered a season-high nine shots!

In 16 duels against Toronto, he has 46 shots, which is 2.87 per game. All of this should be enough for us to win this bet. With only one goal in the past ten games, I am sure Bjorsktrand will be eager to find the back of the net on Sunday and will have at least three shots on goal.

I hope the Maple Leafs vs Kraken NHL Player Props for Sunday, January 21 will help you to make a profit. For more player props, make sure to follow Sports Chat Place.
