Golden Knights vs Kraken Betting Prediction

Vegas was able to snap their losing streak with a win against Detroit in their last game, but they have not played very well over the last couple of weeks. The Golden Knights are only 14-13-5 on the road, while Seattle is 14-12-5 at home. The Kraken have won two of their last three games, but they still struggle to score consistently, as they are only scoring 2.71 goals per game this season. Vegas has been in some higher scoring games recently, going over 6.5 goals in eight of their last nine games, and I think their poor defensive play recently is going to really help Seattle. Take the over here.
