Coyotes vs Red Wings Prediction

When it comes to a straight moneyline bet, look no further than the Red Wings. Nevertheless, given the payout of -183, you could also think about incorporating this bet into a parlay.

When it comes to my suggested pick for the puck line, I’d advise taking the Coyotes to cover. Even in the event of a Red Wings victory, this matchup is likely to remain closely contested, and the Coyotes should cover the puck line.

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