The 36-28-4 Vegas Golden Knights bring a two-game winning streak into Seattle today as they take on the 21-39-6 Kraken at 10:00 p.m. EST.

Vegas has now won four of six as we enter the homestretch of the NHL regular season, while Seattle has won three of four after a brutal 2-12 stretch.

Back in November, the Golden Knights beat the Kraken 4-2 -- can they make it two straight or will Seattle stay hot as a home underdog?

Let's check out the odds from WynnBET as we look for value in this Golden Knights vs Kraken matchup:

Golden Knights vs Kraken Prediction and Pick

Kraken starting goalie Phillip Grubauer has been a disaster, posting a league-worst minus-31.2 GSAx (a measure of average goals scored against). Partially due to such poor goalkeeping, Seattle is just 5-15 in its last 20 home contests.

But Vegas has been equally terrible on the road, losing seven straight with six straight coming by multiple goals. The Golden Knights have lost three straight as a road favorite as an injury-riddled roster has struggled with depth.

Even still, the Kraken are 1-5 in their last six as a home underdog and are at a significant disadvantage with Grubauer in net. Vegas will be in desperation mode as it tries to secure a playoff spot and know it needs to take advantage of games against bad teams.

Give me the Golden Knights in an inspired performance to win their third straight. I'll take the puck line and expect a high-octane attack to push us to a cover.

Pick: Golden Knights -1.5 (+150)
