Kraken vs Avalanche Prediction & Pick

The Avalanche proved why they're the defending champions in Game 6 with a dominant performance. They outshot the Kraken 39-23 and also had the 29-23 advantage in the faceoff circle as well. If it wasn't for Seattle goaltender Philipp Grubauer stopping 35-of-38 shots, the final score could've been more lopsided.

The Avalanche now have all of the momentum and won't let this opportunity pass them by. The Kraken have never been in a Game 7 situation and their performance last outing shows that they aren't ready for the spotlight. Nathan MacKinnon and his teammates know how to close out a series when given the chance, so look for the Avalanche to advance.

Final Score Prediction: Avalanche: 3 | Kraken: 1

Kraken vs Avalanche Best Bet

Taking the Under has been a safe bet in this series and I'm sticking to it in Game 7. After all, the Kraken and Avalanche combined for five or fewer goals in all but one of the previous six games, leading to the Under now hitting in nine of their previous 10 meetings. With Grubauer and Georgiev coming off strong starts, goals will be even tougher to come by.

Even with the Over being favored, history has shown that you shouldn't expect a ton of goals when these teams meet.

Bet: Under 5.5 Goals (+104)
