Seattle is a National Hockey League rookie in its debut season. Alas, it is not going well. If it was not so bad in the beginning, now the Krakens are in a severe crisis. They cannot win nine games in a row, scoring only one point during this stretch for a 2:3 overtime loss to Philadelphia. The current squad level is too mediocre to make big plays, so the club’s management will have to improve the lineup situation soon. In the meantime, Seattle sits in second last place in the Western Conference standings, ahead only of long-suffering Arizona.
Chicago had an even worse start to the regular season. Jeremy Colliton’s team got their first win in the tenth game, thrashing Ottawa 5:1. Alas, after that came another failure, so the coach was sent off, and Derek King took his place. Surprisingly, immediately after the change of head coach, the Hawks’ performance improved dramatically. The following 26 meetings had only 12 losses and 14 wins, which can be considered tremendous progress. Now the Black and Reds are riding a winning streak of four straight games. Chicago is occupying 14th place in the Western Conference standings, but now they are out of dead-end, and they have a real shot at making the playoffs.
Expert Betting Tips
Seattle and Chicago are now neighbours in the Western Conference standings, ranked 15th and 14th, respectively, but that doesn’t mean their level of play is comparable. Lately, the Hawks have been on a winning streak of four straight victories, while the Crackers have been in a serious slump, as evidenced by their nine consecutive losses. Moreover, the Red and Blacks also won their first-ever head-to-head meeting. As a result, we bet on Chicago to win the game.
Currently, Seattle and Chicago are in a very different states. While the Krakens are in decline and haven’t battled for a playoff in a long time, the Hawks have made significant progress and are gradually getting closer to the West cup eight. The visiting team is looking to go into this game riding high, and they’ll try to crush their opponent from the first minutes. Therefore, the best option for the prediction looks like a goal from 1 to 8 minutes.
Chicago managed to gain a good fit now, and an enjoyable impression leaves the defence’s reliability, while the offence does not show anything incredible. In the last four meetings with the Hawks, 16 pucks were scored (4.00 average per game). Seattle looked decent in defence in the previous two games, but the offence was lame. That’s why they had to suffer two more defeats - 1:2 and 1:3. It is unnecessary to expect an abundance of goals from the upcoming confrontation. Therefore, it is worth looking at the bet on the total under 5.5.
