Our Free NHL Pick for Winnipeg Jets vs Seattle Kraken

Winnipeg should have no problem dispersing of the Seattle Kraken, but we have to question the motivations of both sides due to their playoff positioning being mostly decided already. Winnipeg as big favorites is an easy play, but there is more value on the Under, as Seattle will struggle mightily to score against the Jet defense. Prediction: Winnipeg wins 3-0.
