The last game on tonight’s NHL schedule has the Seattle Kraken visiting Rogers Place in Edmonton to take on the Oilers.  The most penalized team in the league will try to stop Connor McDavid and a red hot Edmonton power-play.

The Oilers are -230 favourites to win on the NHL odds with a total of 6.5.

Kraken vs. Oilers NHL Betting Odds

A whopping 95 per cent of bettors are siding with the Oilers tonight as they catch Seattle on the second half of a back-to-back. Seattle played two days in a row a week ago and dropped both games.

In the pre-season Edmonton smoked the Kraken 6-0 before Seattle would redeem themselves with a 2-1 win a few days later. Both games played the under.

Seattle has been good against the spread, covering in five of their nine games. They do struggle to score at times, averaging 2.8 goals per game, which could be why four of their last five matchups have played the under.

The 6-1 Oilers could take back first place in the Pacific with a win tonight on home ice. Edmonton has only covered the spread in three of seven this year and has played the over in four.

Special teams will play a huge part in tonight’s outcome. No team takes more penalties than Seattle and Edmonton’s power-play is the best of the best.

Seattle Kraken

The Kraken’s first ever two-game win streak was snapped yesterday in a loss to the Rangers. Jordan Eberle scored Seattle’s lone goal in the contest, his second of the season. Eberle, who leads the team in opportunities off the rush, may have finally found that scoring touch again. The former Oiler has notched two goals in his last three games.

Jared McCann, the Kraken’s leading scorer, was added to the COVID list before Sunday’s game and will likely miss tonight’s game as well.

Edmonton Oilers

The Oilers will be trying to redeem themselves after losing their perfect record in their last home game. Edmonton’s power-play, however, came through for them again Saturday night, potting two goals in their 2-1 win over Vancouver. The power-play is clicking at a scary 47.8 per cent success rate, scoring 11 of their 28 goals this season.

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins has yet to find the back of the net, but he has been quietly putting in work. The 11-year veteran has 10 assists so far, and has a point in each of the past six games.
