The Florida Panthers and Arizona Coyotes face off on Tuesday in an NNHL showdown at Mullett Arena. Let’s look at the betting matchup and give a free Panthers vs Coyotes prediction.

Panthers Have Won Four Straight

The Panthers are playing some really good hockey right now and they have won four straight games. On Saturday the Panthers faced off against the Montreal Canadiens and they were able to secure the 4-1 victory. Sam Bennett had a strong season scoring one goal and adding one assist. Florida on the season is averaging 2.97 goals while their defense is giving up 2.56 goals per game. The offense is ranked 22nd in the league while the defense is ranked 3rd. Sam Reinhart has scored 23 goals and added 21 assists so far this season. The Panthers will meet the Golden Knights and Avalanche after this one.

Coyotes Look for Another Big Win

The Coyotes faced off against the Anaheim Ducks in the last game and the offense scored only two goals, but the defense didn’t give up any goals. Connor Ingram saved all 28 of the shots that he faced. The Coyotes overall this season are averaging 3.09 goals while their defense is giving up 2.83 goals per game. The offense is ranked 177th in the league while the defense is ranked 11th. Clayton Keller has scored 13 goals and added 18 assists so far this season. The Coyotes need to be the team that gets out to a fast start here. The Coyotes will take on the Islanders and Jets after this game.

Panthers vs Coyotes Betting Prediction

This game is going to be lower scoring. The Coyotes defense was elite in the last game giving up zero goals and they are going to step up again in this game. The Panthers defense is giving up only 2.56 goals per game and they are going to step up in a big way here. Both of these offenses are going to lockdown here, and the under is going to cash. This is one of my favorite plays on the board. 

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
