Maple Leafs vs Kraken Betting Prediction

Seattle comes into this game on a three game losing streak and they have been out scored by a total of 12-4 in those three games. The Kraken are 9-8-3 at home, while Toronto is 12-5-6 on the road. The Maple Leafs are on a back to back, after losing to Vancouver on Saturday night. Toronto has really struggled in their last six games, but they will play a Seattle team that has been pretty poor on offense for most of the season. We have two teams that are really struggling in this game, but I am going to side with Toronto. The Maple Leafs are the more talented team and I can’t trust this Seattle offense right now. Take Toronto here.
