Carolina Hurricanes vs Seattle Kraken Betting Odds
The Carolina Hurricanes are clear favorites coming into Saturday night’s game with -189 odds to win while the Kraken are at 386 and 410 odds are set for a draw.
The total goals margin is set at 5.5 with -123 to go over and 100 for under.
The Carolina Hurricanes found their way to reach the top of the Eastern Conference but with two recent losses they put the top seed in jeopardy. They bounced back with a comeback win in Pittsburgh and will have a chance to add another win against one of the worst teams in the league.
The newly established Kraken are a much better team than their record show which they proved in the first game against the Hurricanes this season. Anyway, Carolina is a team built to fight for the Stanley Cup and will dominate this game winning by at least two goals difference.
