The Coyotes are 12-26 in their last 38 road games and 6-2 in their last 8 overall. The Golden Knights are 36-16 in their last 52 home games and 48-23 in their last 71 overall. The over is 8-2 in Coyotes last 10 overall. The under is 5-2 in Golden Knights last 7 overall. The Coyotes are 0-4 in the last 4 meetings in Vegas and 1-5 in the last 6 meetings. The favorite is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings. The home team is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings.

The Vegas Golden Knights are obviously the better team here and should be favored, but there's no doubt they're coming off a rough week and have failed to cash some big tickets. The Arizona Coyotes are playing some of their most consistent hockey in quite some time and did outscore Vegas 5-3 in the last two meetings, despite not having a lot of success against them in terms of wins and losses. This is a lot of plus money to turn down with the team that's in better form at the moment. Give me the Coyotes and the big plus money.
