Oilers vs Kraken Prediction

For a moneyline pick, I’m taking the Kraken to pick up on a win over the Oilers at home. With the moneyline sitting at +127, 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.

With an over/under line sitting at 6.5 goals, we like this game to surpass that mark and recommend getting a bet down on the over.
