The over is 6-1 in Coyotes last 7 overall. The under is 4-1 in Ducks last 5 Sunday games. The Coyotes are 5-1 in the last 6 meetings. The favorite is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings. The home team is 9-3 in the last 12 meetings.
The Arizona Coyotes are a team that I'm always cautious to back, as they usually don't string together success, but there's no doubt they're playing some impressive hockey as of late. The Anaheim Ducks continue to pile up the losses and playing at home hasn't helped all that much. The Coyotes have won five of the seven meetings agains the Ducks this season, which includes a 4-2 victory on Friday night. Hard to pass up the Coyotes and the cheap price in this spot.
