The Coyotes are 7-19 in their last 26 road games and 9-4 in their last 13 Monday games. The Avalanche are 54-25 in their last 79 games playing on 1 days rest. The over is 6-2 in Coyotes last 8 overall. The under is 5-2 in Avalanche last 7 home games. The Coyotes are 0-6 in the last 6 meetings in Colorado and 0-4 in the last 4 meetings.

The Arizona Coyotes are just one of those teams I have a hard time backing with confidence, as right when I'm ready to believe in them, they go on a losing streak and let me down. The Colorado Avalanche have feasted against teams with losing records dating back to last season and they've won both meetings this season against the Coyotes, outscoring them 9-4 in those meetings. The Avalanche have won eight of the last 10 meetings against the Coyotes overall. Give me the Avs, and I'll take the PL for added betting value.
