The favorite is 10-2 in the last 12 meetings. The home team is 9-4 in the last 13 meetings.
The Colorado Avalanche continue to flex their muscle as one of the hotter teams in the league and that offense is getting way too comfortable. The Avs have also now won four of the five meetings against the Coyotes this season. The Arizona Coyotes just can't get out of their own way and they've been downright brutal on the end of back to backs dating back the last couple of seasons. Not easy to beat the same team twice in as many days, but I'll side with the Avalanche and the PL for max betting value.
