Kraken on Canucks picks and predictions Prediction
Canucks 3, Kraken 2
BET CANUCKS (-105).
Demko has played well against Seattle in his career and Vancouver should be more focused on Tuesday after losing 3 straight games. The Canucks have bounced back from some poor performances of late and are 4-1 in their last 5 games after scoring 2 or less goals in their previous contest. The Kraken could also be due for a slump after winning by 7 goals last time out, especially since they are 0-5 in their last 5 games following a win.
Ball Line/Against the Spread
Two of the last 3 meetings between these teams have been decided by 1 goal. Vancouver +1.5 (-250) should hit, but there’s no need to pay the highest price on the line when the Canucks should win straight up. Bet the moneyline and/or total instead.
BET ON 6.5 (+105).
The Under is 3-1-1 in Seattle’s last 5 games and 9-4-1 in their last 14 going on the second night of a back-to-back. Both goaltenders have had success against the opposition in their careers, and Tuesday’s meeting should be another low-scoring matchup as Vancouver picks up a win against a back-to-back Kraken team.
