Kraken vs Blues Prediction

When it comes to a moneyline wager, I’m going with the Blues to defeat the Kraken while playing at home. Given the current moneyline odds at -134, I’m placing a wager on the Blues to win outright.

When it comes to a puck line pick, our choice is the Blues to secure the win and cover. Expect the Blues to dominate this one with a multi-goal win 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.
