Coyotes vs Canucks Prediction

When it comes to a straight moneyline bet, look no further than the Canucks. Nevertheless, given the payout of -250, you could also think about incorporating this bet into a parlay.

My recommended pick for the puck line is to take the Coyotes to cover. Even if the Canucks win straight-up, this one should be close throughout and the Coyotes should cover the puck line.

For those looking at the over/under line set at 6 goals, our expectation is that this game will surpass that mark, and we suggest making a bet on the over.
