Coyotes vs Senators Prediction

When thinking about a moneyline wager in this game, our evaluation indicates that the Senators will take down the Coyotes. Nonetheless, given the current odds of -190, I’d recommend getting bet down on the puck line instead, as our predictions point to the Senators winning by more than one goal.

When it comes to a puck line pick, our choice is the Senators to secure the win and cover. Expect the Senators to dominate this one with a multi-goal win over the Coyotes.

With an over/under line sitting at 6.5 goals, we like this game to remain below that mark and recommend getting a bet down on the under.
