Seattle Kraken vs. St. Louis Blues 4/14/24 NHL Best Picks, Analysis and Forecast

Seattle Kraken (33-31-13) vs. St. Louis Blues (42-32-5)


Seattle Kraken vs. St. Louis Blues 4/14/24 – In an eagerly awaited showdown in the NHL regular season, the Seattle Kraken will face off against the St. Louis Blues at the Enterprise Center. Scheduled for Sunday, the Kraken, with a record of 33 wins, 31 losses, and 13 overtime losses, are set to challenge the Blues, who hold a stronger position with 42 wins, 32 losses, and 5 overtime losses. This match serves as a premium game analysis opportunity to evaluate two contrasting teams, each with their own strengths and recent challenges.


The Seattle Kraken have proved to be a team with a dynamic attack this season and McCann and Bjorkstrand have been leading the way. McCann, although he accumulated 60 points with 28 goals, proved to be the team’s crucial asset despite the fluctuations in the team’s performance. The real concern for Seattle is all about consistency, their -8 and -19 plus/minus ratings respectively, concerns which the Blues’ might capitalize on the robust defense. Vince Dunn can boast his defensive and offensive attacks as well, making Kraken’s daring plays such a notable opposition to the Blues’ defense strategy.


However, the St. Louis Blues are also a force to be reckoned with, thanks to their offensive attack led by the likes of Robert Thomas and Jordan Kyrou. Thus, Thomas, also earning 83 points from 25 goals and 58 assists, and Kyrou, acquiring 65 points, have contributed to the Blues’ offense. The team’s ability to break through the defenses could be the most critical challenge for the Kraken’s defensive scheme, mainly because of the strategic passing of Pavel Buchnevich, who also brings offensively 62 points to the game. We will need to rely heavily on our offensive might in order to get through the Kraken’s defensive lines.

Goaltender Joey Daccord vs. Goaltender Jordan Binnington


A very solid attendant in net has been Joey Daccord for the Kraken with a 0.918 save percentage out of 47 games. This demonstrates his prowess to withstand offensive attacks. He will be the crucial player who will mitigate the Legions’ mighty forward group. His heroism in shootouts and regular game will have to reach its maximum level to neutralize the strategic conquest of Thomas and Kyrou.


Jordan Binnington, the Blues’ stopper with a 0.911 save percentage through 55 games, will have a tough task in front of him when he faces off against the Kraken’s sharpshooters (McCann and Bjorkstrand). With his experience and the slightly lower GAA posted this season, Binnington might just have what it takes to keep the Blues’ defensive structure solid.


NHL Odds/Point Spread: TBD, Total Odds: TBD


With odds still undetermined, it is important that bettors frequently check the lines to keep an eye on any changes. The game outcomes, the goal keepers quarterbacks and even the helper defensemen will influence the odds. 


Seattle Kraken Betting Trends


The Kraken has had a disappointing recent form, which has seen them win just once in their last five games, both overall, and against the spread. Moreover, the road sight with an admirable 24-13 record against the spread suggests that they could hold a distinct potential for dominance over the unexpected outfields, mainly on adverse ground.


St. Louis Blues Betting Trends


The Blues have shown a slight improvement in recent games with 3 wins in their last 5, and the same record with the Over/Under bets. This 19-21 road recordspread result indicates Blues face some problems and their home-gaming position does not make them an absolute favorite, but instead leaves room for Seattle’s Kraken to attack.


Seattle Kraken vs. St. Louis Blues 4/14/24 Betting Picks


Considering the mixed results of metrics and game patterns for the game, this one is a close outcome. With additional edge given to the home team as a result of better performance during the season (landing slight odds), rather risk getting more on the Kraken side might as-well offer more value, particularly considering their good away track record.


No-cost NHL predictions suggest a tightly contested game potentially favoring the Blues due to their superior offensive consistency and home advantage. Nevertheless, an upset this close to the end by the Kraken shouldn’t be ruled out, especially if Daccord proves to be the best goalie on the ice by the end of the night. This could be over’ on the total points if goalie opening is an issue because of the teams with known tendency for higher scoring games.
