Kraken vs Golden Knights Prediction

When it comes to a moneyline bet in this game, our analysis leans towards the Golden Knights picking up the win. However, given the current odds of -188, I’d advise going with the puck line, as our predictions have the Golden Knights coming out on top by more than one goal.

For a puck line pick, we are going with the Golden Knights to win and cover. Look for the Golden Knights to win this one by multiple goals over the Kraken.

With an over/under line sitting at 6 goals, we like this game to surpass that mark and recommend getting a bet down on the over.
