Preview

The Washington Capitals continue on the road and will visit the Seattle Kraken at the Rogers Arena on Friday night. These teams met three times last season and the Kraken led 2-1 with the 2 wins at home.

Washington Capitals

The Capitals have won 5 of the last 6 games and are 5-4-1 on the road this season ranking 2nd in the Pacific. In their lasr game on the road, they beat the Oilers 3-1. Viktor Arvidsson assisted on all three goals for the Capitals, who have won five of their last six games. Cal Petersen stopped 22 shots.

Kevin Fiala leads the team with 18 points, 6 goals and 12 assists for the Capitals. Gabriel Vilardi has 10 goals.

In their last 10 games the Capitals are 7-3, averaging 3.2 goals, 4.8 assists, 5.2 penalties and 14.9 penalty minutes while giving up 2.5 goals per game.

Seattle Kraken

The Kraken have won 4 of their first 5 games of the season and are 3-1 at home so far ranking 1st in the Pacific. They're coming from a tough game against the Carolina Hurricanes where they came up with the victory 3-2 in overtime with a goal from Tyler Toffoli.

Nazem Kadri has scored 4 goals with 5 assists  and 9 points for the Kraken. Rasmus Andersson leads the team with six assists over the past 5 games.

In their last 10 games the Kraken are 5-5, averaging 3 goals, 4.9 assists, 6.5 penalties and 17.6 penalty minutes while giving up 3 goals per game.

 

BETTING TRENDS

Washington are 5-1 SU in their last 6 games.

Washington are 1-7 SU in their last 8 games against Seattle.

Washington are 2-5 SU in their last 7 games on the road.

Washington are 0-5 SU in their last 5 games when playing on the road against Seattle.

The total has gone OVER in 7 of Seattle's last 8 games.

Seattle are 5-13 SU in their last 18 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Seattle's last 5 games against Washington.

The total has gone OVER in 9 of Seattle's last 13 games at home.

 

Prediction

The Capitals have been playing good lately as they have won 5 of their last 6 games but they have struggled on the road losing 5 of their last 7 games away and are 1-7 last 8 games playing in Seattle. The Kraken offense exploded in the last game vs Buffalo scoring 5 goals to win the game but they have struggled defensively allowing allowing 4.2 goals per game in their last 5 games. I expect a high scoring game and with the over cashing big time for the Kraken I think that's the best play here.
