Kraken Looking to Avenge Last Game
There are plenty of NHL odds betting opportunities Tuesday night. One of those opportunities is the expansion Seattle Kraken traveling to the Pacific Division-leading Calgary Flames. This past Saturday evening, the Flames beat the Kraken, 4-1, in Washington. While these teams are the polar opposites in the division, Seattle hasn’t rolled over often this season.
The Flames are heavy moneyline favorites at odds of -420 odds. Be sure to check out the scores and odds throughout the NHL if you’re preparing to make a play on this or any contest.
Seattle Needs Scoring Help
The Seattle Kraken are averaging a lackluster 2.56 goals per game this season, ahead of only the Arizona Coyotes’ 2.47 gpg. Jared McCann (41 points) leads the team in scoring, so this team has a lot of room for offensive improvement.
Seattle doesn’t have the depth to stay with the top teams in the league, but they’ve won twice in their last five games. Four of those have been “under” games.
The Kraken generally hang around a good portion of the contest, but the oppositions’ better players eventually win the day (or night).
The Calgary Flames are riding a four-game winning streak. In three of those wins, they disposed of the puck line as well. At 3.49 goals per game, Calgary is averaging about a goal more than its expansion counterparts
Calgary registers the third-most shots per game, meaning minimal respite for the opposing goalie(s). The stingy Flames allow just 2.46 goals per game, second in the league.
Look for production leaders Johnny Gaudreau (65 assists) and Elias Lindholm (38 goals) to continue leading by example.
Kraken vs Flames Head-to-Head
The Calgary Flames have, unsurprisingly, dominated this first-season series, winning the three games by a combined score of 12-6.

Kraken vs Flames Prediction
Moneyline for this contest has the Kraken as a major (+340) underdog, and it’s hard to see the underdog coming away with a win.
With the goal total currently at six, it makes that wager very interesting. The second meeting in a week between these two teams might mean it’s even tighter-checking than the previous. Look for the favorite to handle the job in this one.
Calgary has covered the puck line in two of the three meetings this season, and we see more of that. Be sure to visit the BetUS sportsbook and bet the Flames -1½ goals at -150 odds.
