Historic Head-to-Head Stats and Analysis

Over the course of the 2023-2024 NHL season, the Seattle Kraken and the Calgary Flames have faced off three times, with the Flames emerging victorious in two of those encounters. The visiting team has consistently come out on top in all three matchups, indicating a trend of away-game success in this particular series. When it comes to betting statistics, the Flames have covered the spread twice, while the Kraken have done so once. The over/under results have leaned towards high-scoring games, with the over hitting twice and the under only once. In terms of gameplay, the Flames have shown a stronger offensive presence, scoring a total of 11 goals across the three games compared to the Kraken’s 8. The Kraken, however, have demonstrated resilience in their most recent game, securing a win despite being the underdog and having fewer shots on goal.

The most recent game between the two teams took place on December 27, 2023, where the Seattle Kraken edged out the Calgary Flames with a narrow 2-1 victory. The Kraken, who were the underdogs with a closing moneyline of 125, managed to secure the win with a final score spread of 1. The game was characterized by a strong defensive effort from both sides, with the Kraken blocking 20 shots and the Flames 19. Despite the Flames having a higher number of shots on goal at 38 compared to the Kraken’s 21, Seattle’s goaltender Chris Driedger delivered an impressive performance with a save percentage of 0.974. The Kraken’s Alex Wennberg scored the decisive goal in the third period, tipping the scales in favor of Seattle and ensuring their win against the spread.

Seattle Kraken vs. Calgary Flames Predictions

The Calgary Flames are entering this game on a high, riding a five-game winning streak that has seen them climb up the standings. With a balanced attack led by Blake Coleman and the playmaking prowess of Nazem Kadri, the Flames have been finding the back of the net with regularity. However, they’ll need to be wary of the Kraken’s Jared McCann, who has been on a tear with 25 goals this season. The Flames’ defense, which has been solid at home, will be put to the test against a Kraken team that has shown they can score in bunches.

Seattle, on the other hand, is looking to bounce back from a recent loss and will rely on their top scorer McCann and defenseman Vince Dunn, who leads the team in assists, to spark their offense. The Kraken have been a middle-of-the-pack team in terms of offense and defense, but they’ve shown resilience and the ability to pull off upsets, as evidenced by their recent win against the Flames in December. With both teams having similar win percentages, this game could very well be decided by which star players step up and which goaltender can make the key saves.

This game also features a key matchup between the Flames’ top goal scorer, Coleman, and the Kraken’s leading assist provider, Dunn. Both players have been instrumental in their teams’ successes this season and will be looking to make an impact. With the Flames seeking to maintain their momentum at the Scotiabank Saddledome and the Kraken aiming to prove their mettle on the road, fans can expect a tightly contested game filled with strategic plays and high stakes.

Seattle Kraken vs. Calgary Flames Pick

The Seattle Kraken come into this matchup as the underdogs, but they have a history of pulling off upsets against the Flames, including their most recent encounter. With the Flames only covering the spread twice in their last three meetings and the Kraken covering once, the odds are more favorable for a Kraken victory, especially considering their resilience on the road. Additionally, the Kraken’s leading scorer, Jared McCann, has been a consistent threat, and if he can find the back of the net, it could swing the momentum in Seattle’s favor.

While the Flames have been on a winning streak, the Kraken’s ability to win as the underdog and their strong performance in the last game against Calgary cannot be overlooked. The Flames may have home-ice advantage, but the Kraken’s road record and the high stakes of this game suggest they will bring their best effort. Given the competitive odds and the Kraken’s potential for an upset, a moneyline bet on Seattle is a calculated risk worth taking for this Pacific Division clash.

The Pick: Seattle Kraken +115 (BetMGM)
