The Seattle Kraken and Washington Capitals face off on Thursday in an NHL showdown at Capital One Arena. Let’s look at the betting matchup and give a free Kraken vs Capitals prediction.

Kraken Offense Impresssed against Sabres

The Settle Kraken faced off against the Buffalo Sabres in the last game and they were able to secure the 5-2 victory. Will Borgen had a strong game finished with two assists. Seattle overall has had some issues with the offense and they are averaging only 2.75 goals per game. The defense is giving up 2.83 goals per game. The offense is ranked 27th in the league while the defense is ranked 10th. Vince Dunn on the season has scored eight goals and added 26 assists so far this season.

Capitals Have Lost Two of Three

The Capitals are coming off a win but before that they had lost two straight games. Two games ago against the Carolina Hurricanes they gave up six goals and ended up losing. In the last game against the Los Angeles Kings, they looked better and they ended up winning 4-3. Nicolas Aube-Kubel had a strong game scoring a goal and adding an assist. The Capitals overall are averaging 2.39 gaols while their defense is giving up 2.97 goals per game. The defense has been fine, but the offense is ranked 30th. 

Kraken vs Capitals Betting Prediction

Goals are going to be hard to come by in this game. The Kraken’s offense is ranked 27th in the league while the Capitals defense is ranked 30th. The Capitals offense has been a major issue all season and they are going to really struggle to get the offense going here. I expect both teams are going to really struggle to get the offense going and this game is going to end up staying under the total.
