Kraken ML (+116)
Maple Leafs -1.5 (+134)
Flames -1.5 (+136)
Let’s break down each leg one by one:
Seattle Kraken ML (+116) over Philadelphia Flyers
Seattle head coach Dave Hakstol is making his first return to Philadelphia since being let go by the franchise in 2018. His guys should have a bit of extra motivation. The Kraken are 1-1-1 thus far in their inaugural season, and all 3 games have been decided by a single goal. They lost their season opener against the Golden Knights, but bounced back with a win against the Predators. They lost their last contest against the Blue Jackets, and they are looking for another bounce back win here. Philadelphia has only played one game on the young season, but they did not look particularly sharp. Carter Hart was shaky in net, and the Flyers found themselves down 4-2 after 2 periods. Despite being on their home ice, the Flyers are a tough team to trust in this spot against an upstart Kraken team that should come out firing.

Toronto Maple Leafs -1.5 (+134) over New York Rangers
The Toronto Maple Leafs are 2-1-0 so far this season, and both wins came at home. They are on their home ice again tonight, and they seem to be in a favorable spot. The Maple Leaf offense has been alright with 7 goals through 3 games, but they get a big boost with Auston Matthews slated to make his first appearance of the season tonight. Matthews potted 41 goals and tallied 66 points in 52 games last season, and he seems primed for another big year as Toronto’s No. 1 center. Toronto goaltender Jack Campbell has been great in net, allowing just 2 goals on 63 shots against him. The Rangers are a bit shorthanded as they are now playing without Ryan Strome and Kaapo Kakko. The Leafs have been strong at home, and the addition of Matthews only makes them more dangerous.

Calgary Flames -1.5 (+136) over Anaheim Ducks
The Anaheim Ducks had the lowest goals per game average last season at 2.21. So far in 2021-22, they have 5 goals through 2 games. They are playing without Troy Terry and John Gibson, and while they have gotten some strong contributions from guys like Mason McTavish and Isac Lunderstrom, Anaheim’s overall youth could be a challenge to overcome against a tough Calgary team. With physical players like Milan Lucic and Matthew Tkachuk setting the tone, look for the Flames to establish a physical game plan against the relatively inexperienced Ducks. Calgary’s mix of veterans, skill, physicality, and successful coach Daryl Sutter should be too much for Anaheim’s youth. Look for Calgary to bully Anaheim a little bit and cover -1.5 for their first win of the season.
