Winnipeg Jets vs. Seattle Kraken: Picks, Predictions, Odds and Player Props

The Winnipeg Jets and Seattle Kraken quickly lock horns again this Friday night in the NHL, with the two sides having faced off for the first time this season only on Tuesday.

The Kraken took that win by a score of 4-3 as the road team in what turned out to be a fantastic game.

This time around, the Jets will look to return the favor as the road team as they look to chase down Central Division leaders, the Dallas Stars. This should be a full-on tilt taking place at the Climate Pledge Arena as Seattle is still six points outside of the Wild Card places.

Winnipeg Jets vs. Seattle Kraken betting picks and predictions

Jets Money Line (-125)

The Jets are having an extremely strong season, as they are third in the Western Conference, with at least three games in hand on the two sides above them. 

Those games in hand will be crucial down the stretch, and it is up to them to take advantage of them - and they are expected to come out strong on Friday night.

In this matchup, Winnipeg owns Seattle in many ways, with star talent, overall depth, and defense areas in which the Jets outmatch the Kraken, and therefore hold a major advantage in this game. 

Seattle has gotten great goaltending this season from Joey Daccord, but so has Winnipeg from Connor Hellebuyck, although the Jets' goalie suffered a rare off night in the 4-3 loss earlier this week. Lightning does not tend to strike twice though and this should be a great battle.

Overall, the Jets own the better team, and play a much better stronger and consistent style of play that has been difficult to overcome for all teams in th NHL this season.

Expect the Jets to suffocate the Kraken by spending lots of time in the offensive zone, while quickly eliminating any Kraken offensive pressure. Take the Jets to return to the win column.

Under 5.5 goals (-110)

There was a total of seven goals In that recent game between these two, but expect a different outcome in this one.

The 4-3 loss was a game that Winnipeg let slip through the cracks as they gave up two goals in the final frame. That is usually not the case.

If Winnipeg can get into a groove and earn a lead early, they should do a much better job defending and keeping Seattle at bay. This is what has gotten them so many wins this season.

The Jets are the fifth highest scorers so far in the NHL while Seattle are the fifth lowest scorers. Don't expect this to be high-scoring.

Kyle Connor Anytime Goalscorer (+145)

In the most recent match between these two, Kyle Connor found the back of the net in a losing effort.

In his last eight games, the 27-year-old winger has scored seven goals, continuing to prove his goal-scoring talent.

Connor leads the Jets on the scoring front with 26 goals in 45 games played so far this season, and is a threat every night.

With Winnipeg relying heavily on his talent in a game that they will be hungry to win, Connor is sure to have plenty of chances to score again.
