Coyotes vs Blackhawks Prediction

When it comes to a moneyline wager, I’m going with the Blackhawks to defeat the Coyotes while playing at home. Given the current moneyline odds at +146, I’m placing a wager on the Blackhawks to win outright.

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 5.5 goals, we believe that this game will go over that threshold, and we recommend wagering on the over.
