Coyotes vs. Red Wings Pick
According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Red Wings are favored at home, as they are getting odds of -175 to win, while the Coyotes are listed with a money line of +155 to prevail. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 6 goals. Tonight’s game takes place from Little Caesars Arena in Detroit, Michigan.
The Red Wings snapped a six-game losing streak on Saturday with a 3-2 shootout win over the Panthers in Florida. The Red Wings are now 5-6-1 overall and 1-2-1 at home. Detroit is averaging just 2.50 goals per game while allowing 2.92 per contest. Mike Green has a team-high 11 points on one goal and 11 assists. Henrik Zetterberg and Anthony Mantha each have four goals and five assists. Jimmy Howard is 4-4 in net with a 2.52 GAA and .929 save percentage.
Arizona finally picked up its first win on Monday night, beating Philadelphia 4-3 in OT on the road. The Coyotes are now 1-10-1 on the season and 1-6 on the road. Arizona is putting up 2.50 goals per game this season while allowing 4.25 per game. Clayton Keller is leading the team with eight goals and five assists while Max Domi has nine points. Goalie Antti Raanta has a 3.33 GAA and a .911 save percentage in net but is battling an injury.
Detroit has won four of the last five meetings between these two teams. Neither team has great trends, but the Wings have had some rest while the Coyotes played last night. The Wings have won six of their last eight against Western Conference opponents while Arizona is just 15-51 in their last 66 road games. The Coyotes have not been good on defense or in net, so I give the edge to the Wings at home. The public is behind the Red Wings tonight and I am going with them as well.
