The Vegas Golden Knights and Seattle Kraken face off on Monday in a college basketball showdown at T-Mobile Park. Let’s look at the betting matchup and give a free Golden Knights vs Kraken prediction. With these games there always has to be some sort of concern about the condition of the ice. 

Golden Knights Haven’t Been as Good the Last Couple of Weeks

Vegas won their last game against the Los Angeles Kings, but before that they had lost four games in a row. The defense hasn’t been good enough overall, and it’s going to need to be better here. Two games ago against the Anaheim Ducks the defense gave up five goals and that led to the defeat. The Golden Knights on the season averaging 3.32 goals while their defense is giving 2.76 goals per game. The offense is ranked 12th in the league while the defense is ranked 9th. Jack Eichel has scored 16 goals and added 24 assists so far this season. 

Kraken Look for Fifth Straight Win

The Kraken have won four straight games and they have a ton of confidence heading into this game. Over the last four games the Kraken have given up only five goals total and they are going to need the defense to step up again in a big way here. In the last game, the Kraken faced off against the Philadelphia Flyers and they were able to secure a 2-1 victory in overtime. Vince Dunn on the season has scored six goals and added 24 assists so far this season. 

Golden Knights vs Kraken Betting Prediction

The Golden Knights defense has been quite impressive heading into this game and that is going to be the difference here. Vegas have had some issues heading into this game, and they really looked awful in the last game. The Kraken might only score two or three goals here, but that is going to be enough for them to get the job done here. It’s the only game of the day, and the Kraken will be winning it. Back the Kraken on the money line
