The Coyotes are 9-25 in their last 34 road games and 1-6 in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest. The Ducks are 2-9 in their last 11 home games and 17-35 in their last 52 overall. The under is 7-2 in Coyotes last 9 road games. The under is 4-1 in Ducks last 5 overall. The Coyotes are 3-8 in the last 11 meetings in Anaheim and 4-1 in the last 5 meetings. The favorite is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
The Arizona Coyotes are not a team I back with much confidence and they're also a team that's been horrible on the road dating back to last season. However, the Anaheim Ducks have been pretty much terrible everywhere they play and the losing continues with an offense that can't find the back of the net with any consistency. The Coyotes have won four of the six meetings this season against the Ducks, which includes a 5-1 victory about two weeks ago. Give me the Coyotes and the more than reasonable price.
