Pick

Arizona has started the season playing pretty well and they are looking to extend their winning streak to three games here. Los Angeles lost their first two games of the season, but bounced back with wins against the Wild and the Jets, before losing to Boston last time out. The Coyotes will play another road game here, as they have only played one game at home so far this season. All three of the Kings losses have come against very good teams, but I expect them to take care of the Coyotes in this matchup. Take the Kings -1.5 here.
