Seattle +170 over Dallas

9:30 PM EST. OT included. The Kraken continue to be the most disrespected team left in these playoffs as they are taking back inflated prices in every game they play. Meanwhile, all Seattle does is play hard-nosed hockey on every shift. The Kraken have already proven they can win on the road in Dallas, having taken both Games 1 and 2. In Game 1, the Kraken showed their depth with five different goal scorers. In Game 3, Seattle outdid itself with seven players finding the back of the net. Despite losing Game 4, 6-3, the Kraken were much the better side, dominating the puck possession 5-on-5, but they gave up two power-play goals. The Kraken had also welcomed top scorer Jared McCann in Game 4 after a lengthy absence. With a game under his belt, the Seattle offense is now at the healthiest it has been in these playoffs.

Dallas continues to be overpriced because they are considered to be better than the Kraken by a wide margin, but that is not the truth. Dallas was one of the luckiest teams all season, and their reputation is built on a foundation of beating up on dregs and dragging games into extra time to pad their point total. The Stars were just 5-17 against top-10 teams and 16-21 against top-16 sides. All of that to say, the Stars cannot be favored here like they are an elite team playing some wannabe. The Kraken are a tremendous value once again, and we’re going to go back to that well until it dries up.
