The Minnesota Wild and the Arizona Coyotes meet in NHL action from the Mullett Arena on Sunday. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.
Minnesota is listed as a -225 road favorite and Arizona is a +185 road underdog. The total for this game is set at 5.5 goals.
For Minnesota, Brendan Duhaime is questionable for this game with a head injury while Kirill Kaprizov and Gustav Nyquist are both out until mid-April. For Arizona, Christian Fischer is questionable with a lower body injury.
Arizona’s 3-2 win back on February 6th, 2023, snapped Minnesota’s two-game head-to-head win streak in this head-to-head matchup.
Minnesota is 5-1 in their last 6 games overall and 6-1 in their last 7 games against the Western Conference while the under is 7-1 in their last 8 road games. Arizona is 28-59 in their last 87 games overall and 30-62 in their last 92 games played on no rest while the over is 5-2 in their last 7 home games.
I’m on the Wild here. Even on the back-to-back, the Wild are just simply the better team and even though Arizona’s played much better at home than on the road this season, the reality is you have a team in Minnesota that’s playing for something against a Coyotes team that’s playing out the string and is just focusing on next year and compiling assets. I’ll side with Minnesota for the win here.
