Kraken vs Maple Leafs Betting Prediction 

Toronto comes into this game with the better record, but both teams have had some struggles recently. Seattle has dropped three of their last four games and is only 4-4-4 on the road, while Toronto has lost two of three and is 6-4-0 at home. Toronto has gone to overtime/shootout in three of their last four games and their defense has been pretty solid. The Maple Leafs have allowed three goals or fewer in five of their last six games and they are facing a Seattle team that has had some issues scoring. I like the under in this matchup.
