Seattle has had more issues than a lot of people thought they would and they are only 7-8-5 on the year. The Kraken are only 3-5-1 at home and they have gone to overtime/shootout in three of their last four games. Even with Seattle’s struggles this season, they are still much better than San Jose and should have no issues here. Take the Kraken -1.5 in this game.
