Phil Kessel’s on a team-high 14 goals with 12 assists while Jakob Chychrun and Nick Schmaltz each have double-digit assist tallies this season. Christian Dvorak also has 11 goals this season for the Coyotes.

Arizona is 9-25 in their last 34 road games and 1-4 in their last 5 Friday games while the over is 5-1 in their last 6 games overall. Anaheim is 2-9 in their last 11 home games and 7-21 in their last 28 games as an underdog while the under is 6-1-1 in their last 8 Friday games. The home team is 9-2 in the last 11 meetings between these two teams.
I get the case that could be made for either side here, but I keep backing the Coyotes and it keeps burning a hole in my pocket. Anaheim has provided more value in the plus role on the puck line, but I’m not about laying juice with the Coyotes on the road. These are two teams that struggle to score, but at least Anaheim attempts to play defense. I’m not sure what Arizona’s been doing at times this season. I’ll take Anaheim at home here.
