Maple Leafs vs Coyotes Betting Prediction 

Arizona comes into this matchup on a 10 game losing streak and they are really struggling right now, but they are over .500 on home ice this season. The Coyotes are only scoring 2.87 goals per game, but that is not enough scoring when they are missing their starting goalie. Toronto has won four games in a row and they have out scored those four opponents by a total of 21-8. The Maple Leafs are one of the highest scoring teams in the NHL and they have played great defense in their last four games. Arizona will eventually snap their losing streak, but I don’t think it is going to be here. Take the Maple Leafs -1.5.
