NHL Betting Prediction: Seattle Kraken vs. St. Louis Blues 4/14/2024

Seattle Kraken (33-31-13) vs. St. Louis Blues (42-32-5)

As the NHL regular season heads towards an exhilarating climax, the Seattle Kraken will face off against the St. Louis Blues in a Sunday afternoon match on Sunday. The Kraken, with a record of 33 wins, 31 losses, and 13 overtime losses, are looking to rebound from a series of tough games. In contrast, the Blues boast a stronger season performance at 42-32-5. This matchup is pivotal for both teams and attracts significant attention from the best sportsbooks.

Seattle’s offense, with left wing Jared McCann up front and right wing Oliver Bjorkstrand in the front line, is based on versatility and scoring potential. Both McCann, carrying 28 goals and 32 assists, and Bjorkstrand, with 20 goals and assists, 37 each, will need to make their way through the Blue’s defense on home ice that has shown some fluctuation. The fact that the Kraken can somewhat turn this stat in their favor, especially knowing the records for away games where they have a record of 24-13, can be paramount for them.

On the contrary, the Blues have their offensive assets represented by center Thomas who has shown tremendous ability scoring 83 points from 25 goals and 58 assists. Right beside him Jordan Kyrou has also been a very important player scoring 29 goals. The offensive firepower of the division leader Calgary Hurricanes will test Joey Daccord’s defense significantly as the Seattle Kraken’s goaltender should be at his top form to keep his net safe against such high-caliber opponents.

Goaltender Joey Daccord vs. Goaltender Jordan Binnington

Despite having Joey Daccord as a calm backbone stopping over 44 shots out of 86 faced during 47 games, Kraken’s season is still marked by a 0.918 save percentage. The role of the defense of the Reds will be fundamental in its opposition to the offensive subjects of the Blues led by their best players in attack. Daccord’s sharpness in the goal and his shootout stops could be the little factor that makes the difference in a game that have the potential to be between the two goalkeepers.

On one hand for the Blues, Jordan Binnington is a goalie who maintains a great 0.911 save percentage ratio in his 55 games. Yes, Binnington does face slightly higher goals against average than Daccord, but his experience from past eager games is going to be crucial as he goes against the star shooters of Seattle such as McCann and Bjorkstrand.


NHL Odds/Point Spread: TBD, Total Odds: TBD

As the betting odds are yet to be determined, bettors should keep an eye on updates from sportsbooks. Given the Blues’ slightly better season performance and home advantage, they might emerge as favorites. However, the Kraken’s recent road game record against the spread suggests that they could cover if given a reasonable line.


Seattle Kraken Betting Trends

The Kraken being in the last 5 games overall and ATS might set the fans into panic mode, but they have exhibited a stronger skill in the road games. In the last 5 games , the TOTAL has gone OVER in 2 instances of the games, suggesting that the higher-scoring games have been a norm when Seattle players hit the ice, especially away from home.


St. Louis Blues Betting Trends

The Blues lost only three of their past five games, two straight and one evening matches vs. the spread. There is only one instance in which these games have gone OVER: that is, in one game the total score was above the average for these games. This could affect betting on the over/under line for this matchup.


Seattle Kraken vs. St. Louis Blues 4/14/24 Betting Picks

Due to the fact that both teams are renowned for their offensive strength and current forms, this match could fairly be tipped to be a tough one. The difference-maker for a Kraken triumph is their top line’s propensity to pounce on the Blues’s occasional defensive errors. The Blues need to keep their reliable goaltending and prevent turnovers and shots on goal, while using their power plays effectively.

Taking into account the projections and battle lines, we are likely up for a tough match. Do not forget about the puck line if the odds are in favor of the Kraken, and consider the over if the overall is positioned objectively based on both teams’ previous scoring stats.

This prediction leans slightly towards the home team due to their overall stronger season record and recent form. However, bettors should monitor daily NHL picks and updates closely as game day approaches to make the most informed bets.
