The Arizona Coyotes and Philadelphia Flyers meet Thursday in NHL action at the Wells Fargo Center.

The Arizona Coyotes look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Arizona Coyotes are averaging 2.6 goals per game and are scoring on 18.3 percent of their power play opportunities. Conor Garland leads Arizona with 10 goals, Nick Schmaltz has 15 assists and Oliver Ekman-Larsson has 57 shots on goal. Defensively, the Arizona Coyotes are allowing 2.3 goals per game and are killing 81.3 percent of their opponents power plays. Darcy Kuemper has given up 38 goals on 591 shots faced and Antti Raanta has allowed 27 goals on 355 shots. The Arizona Coyotes have allowed three or less goals in 10 of their last 12 games.

The Philadelphia Flyers look to stay hot while building on their five-game winning streak. The Philadelphia Flyers are averaging three goals per game and are scoring on 19.8 percent of their power play opportunities. Oskar Lindblom leads Philadelphia with 11 goals, Travis Konecny has 17 assists and Jakub Voracek has 49 shots on goal. Defensively, the Philadelphia Flyers are allowing 2.7 goals per game and are killing 85.9 percent of their opponents power plays.

The Coyotes are 7-3 in their last 10 road games, 1-4 in their last 5 games following a win and 21-45 in their last 66 Thursday games. The Flyers are 6-1 in their last 7 games as a home favorite, 4-1 in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest and 6-2 in their last 8 games as a favorite. The over is 4-1 in Coyotes last 5 overall. The under is 6-2 in Flyers last 8 games playing on 1 days rest. The road team is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings. The over is 5-0 in the last 5 meetings in Philadelphia and 10-1 in the last 11 meetings.

The Philadelphia Flyers should be favored given their recent stretch over these last two weeks, but we've made some nice coin backing the Arizona Coyotes in the underdog role this season. With that said, I'm leaning toward the over in this contest. The over has hit in 10 of the last 11 matings between the Coyotes and Flyers, and the last six meetings are producing an average of 7.6 goals. It's hard to ignore history with trends so strong. Give me the over with the fairly small total.
