Blackhawks vs Coyotes Prediction

If you’re looking for a moneyline pick, my choice is the Blackhawks to take down the Coyotes on the road. With the moneyline currently at +187, I’m placing my bet on the Blackhawks straight-up.

If you’re looking to get a bet down on this matchup, we foresee the Blackhawks winning the underdog. However, if you’re not as confident in the Blackhawks straight-up, we’d still recommend placing a bet on them to cover the puck line.

When considering the over/under line, which is currently at 6 goals, we believe that this game will go over that threshold, and we recommend wagering on the over.
