Blackhawks vs. Coyotes Pick

NHL Predictions: Will Coyotes notch win as home dog vs. Blackhawks? 2/12/18

Can the Arizona Coyotes take care of business on their home ice tonight and skate to a win over the Chicago Blackhawks? Game time is slated for 9PM ET.

Who Oddsmakers Like: Chicago. According to oddsmakers at YouWager, the Blackhawks are listed as a -135 favorite to win on the moneyline. The Coyotes are a +115 underdog, while the total sits at 5.5 goals. Chicago opened as a -125 fave before the line was bumped up.

Bet Tonight's NHL Action

Who the Public Likes: Chicago. As of Monday afternoon, 86 percent of public bets have sided with the visiting Blackhawks. Online wager info also says that 72 percent of bets are coming in on the over.

Who We Like: Chicago won the first two meetings this season and has won the last nine games in the series dating back to March of 2015. The over has gone 5-4-1 in the last 10 meetings. The Blackhawks have lost five in a row and are 2-8 in their last 10 games. The under has also gone 5-4-1. Arizona has lost five of its last six games and are 3-7 in the last 10. The over-under has gone 5-5.

This is not the Blackhawks team of old, which is easy to see with the line not being bigger against the NHL's worst team. With injuries and inconsistency on both ends of the ice playing major factors, Chicago has struggled to get anything positive going. Despite the Blackhawks dominating the series as of late, I like Arizona to get the win here. The Blackhawks aren't going nearly as well as they were during the two earlier meetings this season, while Arizona has improved in many categories.

 

NHL DAILY PREDICTION: ARIZONA COYOTES +115
