For a moneyline pick, I’m taking the Flames to pick up on a win over the Kraken at home. With the moneyline sitting at -133, I’ll be locking in a bet on the Flames straight-up.

For a puck line prediction, our preference is the Flames to secure a win and cover. Anticipate the Flames to win this one by multiple goals over the Kraken.

When considering the over/under line, which is currently at 5.5 goals, we believe that this game will go over that threshold, and we recommend wagering on the over.
