Seattle +200 over Boston
7:07 PM EST. OT Included. The Bruins not losing at home this season in regulation is just as unlikely as you or anyone picking 23 winners in a row against the spread. It’s simply remarkable the number of things that have to go right for a streak of this nature to last this long. It might not happen again for another 50 years. Of course that doesn’t mean that the B’s can’t keep it rolling here against the Kraken but at some point, Boston’s extreme luck will run out. Boston also returns home from a trip to California where they played L.A., San Jose and Anaheim. The Bruins have the Maple Leafs on deck on Saturday night.
Right now, there is not a team in the NHL whose energy level is higher than the Kraken’s. This team is playing near flawless hockey with their relentless and aggressive style. They never stop skating and they never stop coming at their opponent. They also limit quality scoring chances as well as anyone. There surely has to be quite a bit of excitement in that Seattle dressing room, as they are next up to take its best shot at ending Boston’s run at home. The Kraken are scoring four goals just about every night. They have recent wins over Edmonton, Toronto, the Islanders and Sabres with the latter occurring in a very difficult spot. The Kraken may not win here but they’re extremely playable at this price.
Seattle +200 (Risking 2 units - To Win: 4.00)
