Two hit or miss struggling teams that don't really defend well, I'm not running to the window to back either side. With that said, we're getting plus money with the Flames. The Flames beat the Kraken a couple of weeks ago on the road, 6-3, and it's the road team that's won the last 4 meetings between the Kraken and Flames. There's some value with the road dog in this contest.
