Golden Knights vs. Kraken prediction

I'm going to be honest, betting on the UNDER in the Winter Classic may not be the most exciting bet to place, but I think it's the right one to make. These two teams have been some of the best defensive teams in the NHL this season.

Over the last 25 games, they rank fourth and fifth in adjusted 5-on-5 expected goals against.

The Kraken, as a whole, have been involved in plenty of low-scoring games this season. There is an average of 5.32 combined goals scored per 60 minutes in their games this season, which would bring us in under the set total for today's action of 6.

It may be a boring bet, but it's the right bet. Give me UNDER 6 in the 2024 Winter Classic.
