Seattle vs Winnipeg: prediction for the NHL fixture
Seattle are back home after a series of away games. The Kraken celebrated success over Buffalo (7:4) and Florida (4:1). McCann and Appleton each scored two goals against the Sabres. Seattle also had a good chance against Detroit, but they lost in a shootout (3:4 SO).
At home, the Kraken managed to defeat another powerful opponent, Edmonton (4:3), but in the following game, they suffered a crushing defeat to Pittsburgh (1:6). Seattle's goalie Grubauer had a shocking game and was substituted off in the first period after he conceded three goals.
Winnipeg have delivered mixed results in their recent series of four home games. The Jets recorded confident victories over Toronto (6:3) and New Jersey (8:4), and forward Scheifele chalked up six points in two matches. However, Winnipeg lost to Arizona (0:1) and Carolina (2:4). In the game against the Hurricanes, goalie Hellebuyck only saved 88% of shots.
In 4 out of 5 games, Seattle didn't lose in the first period.
Winnipeg scored in in each period in 2 out of 3 games.
Winnipeg lost the most points in away games, and we think that the hosts, who have recently gained momentum, will be able to at least not lose in regulation.
Our prediction - Seattle will not lose
The two sides do not like to sit on the defensive and prefer open hockey, so we suggest playing the total over.
Second bet - total over 5.5 goals
