The Arizona Coyotes need a win after losing six of their last 10 games. The Arizona Coyotes are averaging 2.7 goals per game and are scoring on 19.4 percent of their power play opportunities. Conor Garland leads Arizona with 14 goals, Nick Schmaltz has 25 assists and Oliver Ekman-Larsson has 90 shots on goal. Defensively, the Arizona Coyotes are allowing 2.6 goals per game and are killing 81.7 percent of their opponents power plays. Darcy Kuemper has given up 55 goals on 772 shots faced and Antti Raanta has allowed 46 goals on 559 shots. The Arizona Coyotes have allowed three or more goals in four of their last six games.

The Ducks are 20-42 in their last 62 games as a road underdog, 13-32 in their last 45 road games and 7-18 in their last 25 overall. The Coyotes are 2-5 in their last 7 Thursday games, 2-5 in their last 7 home games and 1-5 in their last 6 games as a home favorite. The over is 4-1 in Ducks last 5 overall. The over is 7-2 in Coyotes last 9 home games. The favorite is 12-5 in the last 17 meetings. The under is 5-2-1 in the last 8 meetings in Arizona.

The Arizona Coyotes just cashed for us as an underdog against the St. Louis Blues, and I've said many times before that this is a team that could make you nice coin if they play to their potential. The Anaheim Ducks are in one of those funks again and they've been fade material on the road for a while now. The Arizona Coyotes have also won four of the last six meetings against the Ducks. Give me the home team and I'll lay the juice.
