Seattle vs Nashville: prediction for the NHL game
The Kraken take on the Predators in the National Hockey League on January 26. What to expect from this game? Look out for our prediction in the article below.
Seattle are showing decent results at home. Few could have expected the Kraken to get a confident victory over Florida (5:3), but they delivered an excellent performance and didn't allow the Panthers to create enough chances.
The Kraken lack consistency, which stops them from strengthening their standings. Before beating the Panthers, Seattle suffered a devastating defeat to St. Louis (0:5). Goalie Daccord saved only 83% of the Blues' shots.
Nashville played the last three games at home. They lost to Vancouver (1:3) before defeating the Winnipeg with a score of 5:2. Goalie Saros was excellent and saved 36 shots out of 38.
The Predators built on their success in the next game against Detroit (4:1). Forward Duchene gave an assist and also scored two goals. The Predators are in optimal form and ready to earn more points on their travels.
In 4 of Seattle's last 5 games, the teams failed to score more than one goal in the first period.
Nashville scored the first goal in 4 games in a row.
Seattle are too inconsistent, while Nashville have momentum and are in good shape. We believe that the Predators have a better chance of winning in this fixture.
Our prediction - Nashville to win
Both sides prefer open hockey and often score a large number of goals. We will take the over here.
Second bet - total over 5 goals
