Avalanche vs Coyotes Prediction

When making a moneyline pick, my choice is the Coyotes to come out with a win against the Avalanche while playing at home. Considering the moneyline odds at +168, I’m placing my bet on the Coyotes to win outright.

If you’re looking to get a bet down on this matchup, we foresee the Coyotes winning the underdog. However, if you’re not as confident in the Coyotes 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 6.5 goals, we believe that this game will go over that threshold, and we recommend wagering on the over.
