You can make a case here for the Los Angeles Kings and the plus money considering they've had the bette week, but I'm looking at the under in this spot. The under has hit in each of the last five meetings between the Kings and Coyotes, and seven of the last eight meetings have produced five or less goals. The Arizona Coyotes are having issues finding consistent offense as of late. Give me the under the total.
