BETTING TRENDS

Arizona are 2-4 ATS in their last 6 games on the road.

Arizona are 0-6 SU in their last 6 games when playing on the road against Vegas.

Vegas are 5-1 SU in their last 6 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Vegas' last 5 games against Arizona.

Prediction

The Coyotes are one of the worst teams in the NHL and are allowing nearly 4 goals per game in their last 10 games while scoring only 1.8 goals. They have also lost 6 straight games playing in Vegas. The Golden Knights haven't been profitable covering the spread at home this season but the Yotes are so bad right now and are dealing with many injuries. Take the Golden Knights.

PICK: Golden Knights -1.5 (-145)
