The Seattle Kraken and Winnipeg Jets face off on Tuesday in an NHL showdown at the Canada Life Centre. Let’s look at the betting matchup and give a free Kraken vs Jets prediction.

Kraken on Tired Legs

The Kraken are on tired legs and they are going to need to jump out to a fast start here. On Saturday the Kraken scored only one goal and they ended up losing by a goal. The offense has been inconsistent heading into this game and that can’t happen again here. Seattle overall is averaging 2.72 goals, while their defense is giving up 2.78 goals per game. The offense is ranked 28th overall. Jared McCann Jr has scored 25 goals and added 22 assists so far this season.

Jets Have Lost Two Straight

The Jets are hot coming into this game and they have won two games in a row. Over the last two games the offense scored ten goals, and they are going to need that type of offense to continue. In the last game against the Buffalo Sabres, the Jets were able to secure the 5-2 victory. The Jets are averaging 3.11 goals while their defense is giving up 2.38 goals per game. The offense is ranked 17th in the league, while the defense is ranked 2nd. The Jets will face the Canucks after this back-to-back set against Seattle.

Kraken vs Jets Betting Prediction

The Jets and Kraken are both going to play strong defense here. Seattle is averaging 2.78 goals while their defense is giving up 2.38 goals per game. Their offense is going to really have issue against the Jets defense, and that is going to be the difference here, as this game is going to be lower scoring. I expect only two or three goals to be scored, and this game is going to end up staying under the total.
