The Line: Arizona Coyotes +125 / Edmonton Oilers -150 -- Over/Under: 6
The Arizona Coyotes and Edmonton Oilers meet Tuesday in NHL action at the Rogers Place.
The Arizona Coyotes could use a win after losing seven of their last 10 games. The Arizona Coyotes are averaging 2.6 goals per game and are scoring on 17.5 percent of their power play opportunities. Alex Galchenyuk leads Arizona with 13 goals, Clayton Keller has 27 assists and Oliver Ekman-Larsson has 129 shots on goal. Defensively, the Arizona Coyotes are allowing 2.9 goals per game and are killing 84.8 percent of their opponents power plays. Darcy Kuemper has given up 88 goals on 1,015 shots faced and Antti Raanta has allowed 33 goals on 351 shots. The Arizona Coyotes have allowed three or more goals in six of their last nine games.
The Edmonton Oilers could use a win after losing 10 of their last 11 games. The Edmonton Oilers are averaging 2.8 goals per game and are scoring on 22.2 percent of their power play opportunities. Leon Draisaitl leads Edmonton with 35 goals, Connor McDavid has 52 assists and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins has 154 shots on goal. Defensively, the Edmonton Oilers are allowing 3.3 goals per game and are killing 75.7 percent of their opponents power plays. Cam Talbot has given up 95 goals on 888 shots faced and Mikko Koskinen has allowed 86 goals on 905 shots. The Edmonton Oilers have allowed three or more goals in 10 of their last 11 games.
The Coyotes are 42-86 in their last 128 games as a road underdog, 42-88 in their last 130 road games and 16-37 in their last 53 games playing on 0 days rest. The Oilers are 22-56 in their last 78 Tuesday games, 1-6 in their last 7 games as a favorite and 7-20 in their last 27 overall. The under is 3-1-1 in Coyotes last 5 overall. The over is 5-1 in Oilers last 6 home games. The Coyotes are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings in Edmonton and 2-7 in the last 9 meetings.
Neither of these teams are playing winning hockey at the moment and they're not teams I'm trying to get behind. The one edge you have here is that the Edmonton Oilers have a rest advantage with the Coyotes playing yesterday, and they're at home. The Oilers have also won eight of the last 10 meetings against the Coyotes, and that includes five of the last six games played at the Rogers Place. I'll give the Oilers the slight edge for those reasons.
