Canucks vs Kraken Prediction

For a moneyline pick, I’m taking the Kraken to pick up on a win over the Canucks at home. With the moneyline sitting at -108, I’ll be locking in a bet on the Kraken straight-up.

If you’re looking to get a bet down on this matchup, we foresee the Kraken winning the underdog. However, if you’re not as confident in the Kraken straight-up, we’d still recommend placing a bet on them to cover the puck line.

When considering the over/under line, which is currently at 6.5 goals, we believe that this game will go over that threshold, and we recommend wagering on the over.
