The Carolina Hurricanes are going to get the benefit of the doubt at home, and they’re clearly the better team here. However, this line is downright insane, and it’s not like the Canes are lighting the world on fire these days. Yes, the Hurricanes should win, and they’re solid defensively, but their offense continues to be hit or miss, and they’ve lost some weird games. Based on the big price, I’ll take a shot with the Coyotes.
