Canucks vs Coyotes Prediction

If you’re looking for a moneyline pick, my choice is the Coyotes to take down the Canucks at home. With the moneyline currently at +131, I’m placing my bet on the Coyotes straight-up.

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.

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.
