Seattle Kraken 2024 Stanley Cup Odds

Last year, in their second season of existence, the Seattle Kraken made the playoffs. It upset the defending Stanley Cup champion Colorado Avalanche in the first round for an epic upset for the ages. Seattle has something to build on for its third season and is in the thick of the Western Conference Playoff race. The Kraken often offers good value to gamblers as an obscure expansion team that the masses are unfamiliar with. Seattle should be in the hunt to the very end of the 2023-24 season.

Seattle Kraken NHL Betting Lines

At the approach of the All-Star Break, the Seattle Kraken are 20-18-9 straight up and 17-20-3 over/under the total. Also, Seattle is 5th in the Western Conference wild card playoff standings. Seattle is four points behind the Nashville Predators in the Western Conference playoff race. Late on, Seattle has covered one out of their last five games. While the Kraken has gone under the total in six of its previous ten matchups. Seattle has NHL rankings of 27th for goals scored and 18th for power play efficiency. In comparison, on defense, the Kraken has NHL rankings of 11th for goals against and 20t5h for penalty killing.

The big concern for the Seattle Kraken is its lack of goal scoring. Defensively, the Kraken have a solid blue line and reliable goaltending. But offensive production must increase to gain the playoffs.

Seattle Kraken History

For the first time since 1924, Seattle put a National Hockey League team on the ice. The Seattle Metropolitans won a Stanley Cup championship in 1917 but folded in 1924. On October 12, 2021, the Kraken played their first ever game as a franchise at the Vegas Golden Knights. On October 23, 2021, Seattle hosted the Vancouver Canucks in their first home game at the Climate Pledge Arena. The Kraken and NHL hope an intense rivalry between Seattle and Vancouver will develop based on proximity.

Seattle got off to a promising start with a distinguished logo and snappy uniforms. The Kraken is already emphasizing community involvement and inclusion. The city of Seattle developed a poor reputation for handling riots and the CHAZ Zone in the summer of 2020, and it is hoped that the Kraken can help change the narrative and improve the lawless and radical image of the city.

In goal, the Kraken went with Philipp Grubauer as the number one. Grubauer arrived from the Colorado Avalanche, where he backstopped a team tied with the Vegas Golden Knights for the best regular season record in 2020-21.

Of course, the Vegas Golden Knights’ incredible run to the 2018 Stanley Cup Final as a first-year expansion team puts plenty of pressure on Francis and Hakstol. But Seattle vows to build for the future regardless of those comparisons.

The best part of the 2021-22 season was the tremendous fan support from Seattle. Fans showed great enthusiasm and loyalty.

Television play-by-play man John Forslund is arguably the best in the NHL. Exciting news came when Ed Olczyk was hired away from the Chicago Blackhawks, where he was their long-time color commentator. Olczyk has also been on NBCSN and TNT national broadcasts for several years.
