The Colorado Avalanche roll into Seattle on a three-game win streak, as they get set to face the Kraken and their ex-netminder.

Seattle’s Philipp Grubauer will face his former team for the first time since leaving Colorado in free agency this summer. He and the Kraken are trying to turn around what has been a rocky start to the season.

The Avalanche are -145 favourites to win on the NHL odds with a total of 6.0.

Avalanche vs. Kraken NHL Betting Odds

No surprise that the Avalanche is seeing 93 per cent of the betting action tonight, as these teams are trending in completely opposite directions. The Avalanche are riding a three-game win streak, outscoring their opponents 17-5 in that stretch, while Seattle has dropped seven of the past eight, including their current five-game skid. Colorado’s third-ranked offence is licking their chops as they line up against the NHL’s second-worst defensive squad.

The Avalanche had played the OVER four games straight before a push on Wednesday night, as they are 8-3 to the OVER so far this year. Their three-game streak has boosted their record against the spread to 5-8.

Seattle’s been giving up 3.69 goals per game thus far, helping them to an 11-3 record on the over/under this year. Wednesday night was the fifth game in a row where they failed to cover the spread.

The Avalanche’s power-play clicked three times in their 4-2 win over the Vancouver Canucks on Wednesday night. Nazem Kadri has elevated his game in the absence of Nathan MacKinnon, who is expected to miss at least another couple weeks with a lower-body injury. Kadri has 13 points in his last seven games, including back-to-back three-point nights, and he now leads the team with 17 points (5G, 12A) in 13 games.

After a slow start to the season, the Avs seem to have found their game and are showing why they are the +629 favourite to win the Stanley Cup on Sports Interaction’s NHL Futures board.

Seattle Kraken

The Kraken were the favourite to win on Wednesday versus Chicago but fell 4-2, extending their losing streak to five games. Seattle now sits last in the Pacific Division with a 4-11-1 record.

Goaltender Philipp Grubauer must envy his old squad as his numbers have fallen off a cliff since leaving the Avalanche this summer. He got paid by Seattle because of his Vezina Trophy nomination last season but, he’s 4-8-1 so far, with an .877 save percentage and 3.18 goals-against average.

Jordan Eberle has been red hot, putting up nine points on his current six-game point streak. He leads the Kraken with 13 points (8G, 5A) in 16 games.
