Randy’s Free Pick

The Arizona Coyotes aren’t a good hockey team to put it kindly, and playing at home hasn’t helped this season. The Minnesota Wild have a clear edge on the defensive side, and they’ve absolutely owned the Coyotes over the years. There’s only one way to go here, and that’s for me to side with the Wild and the PL for max betting value.
