The Arizona Coyotes are a team I don't have a lot of confidence in backing, and right when I'm ready to buy what they're selling, they let me down. However, the Coyotes are coming off some nice wins and have won five straight road games, so they're worth a look at the big plus money. The Colorado Avalanche are the better team on paper, but they've been shaky as of late and did just lose to the Coyotes on Monday. There's some value here with the big plus money. I'll take the Coyotes.
