Both the Winnipeg Jets and Seattle Kraken will be seeking their ninth win of the season when they meet in the Pacific Northwest Sunday night. Winnipeg’s in a back-to-back situation, falling 3-2 at Calgary last night. The loss was the first in four outings for the Jets who are still off to a red hot start at 8-4-1 on the season.

Seattle’s in the middle of a six-game homestand but are coming off a shutout loss versus Minnesota on Friday, with the Wild only scoring once themselves. The Kraken are off to a surprisingly strong start to their year too, going 8-5-2 through 15 contests.

Puck drop at Climate Pledge Arena starts at 8 p.m. EDT, with the Kraken a slight -125 moneyline favourite and the over-under at 6.5 on the NHL odds.

Jets vs. Kraken NHL Betting Odds

Despite being near the top of the Pacific Division, the Kraken are actually sub .500 on home ice with three wins in eight home contests so far. The most important trend to note though, is both clubs are under teams. The under is 9-2-2 in Winnipeg’s 13 games, and 4-2 in Seattle’s last six.

Winnipeg and Seattle played three times last year, Seattle’s inaugural season. The Jets averaged four goals per outing in the three victories, while the Kraken scored a total of six. To little surprise, Winnipeg’s top-scorer Kyle Connor scored four times in the three contests against Seattle. Connor Hellebuyck had a 25-save shutout in Winnipeg’s lone trip to Seattle.

The Jets didn’t generate a ton of offence last night, and ultimately paid the price as a shorthanded Calgary goal ended being both the game’s winning and final goal. Neal Pionk and Pierre-Luc Dubois were the two Jets skaters to make good on Winnipeg’s 23 shots on goal. Dubois’ tally put him second on the team in both goals (seven) and points (12).

Connor Hellebuyck started in net, making 32 saves on 35 shots faced. Hellebuyck is again right at the top of the NHL with 356 shots faced in 11 games, but has a remarkable .935 save percentage. With Hellebuyck playing yesterday, David Rittich is in line to start his third game of the year on Sunday.

Seattle Kraken

Seattle’s shutout loss on Friday snapped a franchise-best five-game win streak. The Kraken scored at least four goals in three of the wins, with Martin Jones picking up four of five wins in net. The resurgence of Jones has played a big factor in Seattle’s turnaround in the standings. Jones, a free agent signing, is back at a .910 save percentage for the first time since the 2017–18 season. The Kraken as a team are also 10th in the NHL with 2.8 goals against per game.

Up front, free agent addition Andre Burakovsky has a team-high 13 points, including a three-point outing last Tuesday versus Nashville. The Kraken’s second line of Jaden Schwartz, youngster Matthew Beniers, and veteran Jordan Eberle are off to nice starts too as each player is at least nine points on the season.
