Kraken vs Sharks Betting Prediction

These are two offenses that have had struggles this season, and both teams are going to really struggle in this game. The Sharks are averaging only 2.08 goals per game and they are going to really struggle here. The Kraken’s offense also is going to struggle to get three goals here, and this game is going to stay under the total. Back the under to cash. There will only be four or five goals scored.
