Arizona -½ +150 over Chicago
8:37 PM EST. Regulation only. Wow, talk about going from the penthouse to the outhouse and one need not look further than the Blackhawks. In any event, when a price like this is being offered to beat Chicago in regulation, you can pencil us in almost 100% of the time. It’s also worth noting that Patrick Kane is out and Andreas (I can’t find a home) Athanasiou is doubtful. Perhaps Jujhar Khaira will bury three pucks for the Blackhawks.
We love that Arizona lost 6-2 last game out for its third defeat in a row. That has Arizona’s stock back to where it has been for the past..uh, forever. Arizona has zero market appeal and even less interest as even the local publications bury any articles about them on the last page in a corner. However, the Coyotes themselves are a feisty and resilient dog that just beat Toronto, Colorado and Los Angeles, were tied 3-3 with Florida in the third and that comes to play just about every night. They also have a solid goaltender in Karel Vejmelka, who currently ranks 10th in the league in goals saved above expected.
Arizona -½ +150 (Risking 2 units - To Win: 3.00)
