Arizona is 4-1 in their last 5 games overall and 9-19 in their last 28 games following a win while the under is 5-0 in their last 5 games as a road underdog. Colorado is 8-1 in their last 9 home games and 9-2 in their last 11 games overall while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 games against a team with a losing record. Arizona is 1-7 in the last 8 meetings between these two teams in Colorado and 2-6 in the last 8 meetings between these two teams overall.

There’s no denying the fact that Colorado has done a good job taking care of business against the teams that they should beat, but Arizona’s stepped up to the plate more often than not against the Avs this season, with 4 of the 6 meetings being Arizona wins or a cover on the +1.5 puckline which is almost the play you have to take on the other side if you like Colorado because of these insane prices. Arizona also comes in winning three straight and four of their last five, including a 5-4 win over Colorado just over a week ago. I think the Coyotes show up here and steal one from Colorado so give me Arizona and the plus money here.
