ANALYSIS: My model says the Kraken cover in over 60 percent of the simulations, so you're getting strong value with them at this number. Seattle will be charged up as it plays the first game in franchise history. For an expansion team, the Kraken have several players capable of putting up goals. One of them is RW Jordan Eberle, who has hit the 20-goal plateau six times in his career. Seattle also has G Philipp Grubauer, who was second in the NHL last season with a 1.95 goals-against average. Look for the Kraken to keep it close, if not win outright.
