Dallas Stars at Seattle Kraken Game 6 odds, picks and predictions


The Dallas Stars and Seattle Kraken tangle in Game 6 of their Western Conference semifinals playoff series Saturday. Puck drop at Climate Pledge Arena is scheduled for 7 p.m. ET (ESPN). Below, we analyze BetMGM Sportsbook’s lines around the Stars vs. Kraken odds, and make our expert NHL picks and predictions.

Dallas leads the series 3-2.

The Stars travel to hostile ground trying to eliminate the Kraken in Game 6. Dallas took Game 5 by a 5-2 score behind 2 goals from C Roope Hintz and another from C Joe Pavelski. The Stars scored 5 times on just 21 shots and have the 2nd-year Kraken on the ropes.

LW Jared McCann scored his 1st goal of the playoffs and became the 18th Kraken player to tickle the twine this postseason. Seattle got down 3-0 and scored 2 goals in the 2nd period to get within striking distance, but Dallas shut the door.

Stars at Kraken projected goalies

Jake Oettinger (37-11-11, 2.37 GAA, .919 SV%, 5 SO – regular season) vs. Philipp Grubauer (17-14-4, 2.85 GAA, .895 SV%, 0 SO – regular season)

Oettinger stopped 29 of 31 shots he faced in Game 4 and has the Stars in the driver’s seat. He has allowed at least 2 goals in every game this series. Oettinger has a 2.65 GAA and .907 SV% in the playoffs.

Grubauer has come undone in this series as he stopped just 16 of 20 shots in Game 4. He has allowed 4 goals or more in 4 of the 5 games vs. Dallas as his GAA has eroded to 3.06 with a .903 SV% these playoffs.

Stars at Kraken picks and predictions


Stars 4, Kraken 2


Dallas (-165) is hoping to repeat what they did against Minnesota in going down 2-1 in the series and not losing another game — and I think they accomplish that. Grubauer was the star of the Avalanche series and kept the Kraken in it, but he has begun to cave in as Dallas dominates the pace.

PASS on moneyline pricetag though, and look to the spread.

Puck line/Against the spread

The last 4 games in the series have been decided by 2 goals or more, and every Dallas win has been as such. Dallas has scored 4 goals or more in 6 of 7 games, and that’s what it’s going to take to cash a puck line in Game 6.

Take the STARS -1.5 (+150).


The Over is 5-0-1 in the last 6 for Dallas and 5-0 in the last 5 for Seattle. The Over is 8-0 in the last 8 between the teams and 4-0 in the last 4 in Seattle. I just don’t see 7 goals with a Dallas victory.

Head to the Win/Total section, and take STARS AND OVER 4.5 GOALS (+100).
