Minnesota Wild vs Seattle Kraken prediction

The Kraken are getting the edge from oddsmakers because they're at home, but the value is with the Minnesota Wild and the plus money. The Wild are the better team here overall, and they've won 3 straight against the Kraken and 5 of the last 6 meetings overall. The Wild also have 13 road wins this season, so this is far from a pushover in this spot. I'll take the more favorable price with the road team.
