The worst team in the NHL travels to San Jose to play the always dangerous Sharks. Can the away team pull a rabbit out of the hat, and upset their Conference foe?
The Coyotes have been downright awful this year, on and off the ice. As this may be their last year in existence, do they still carry any value for bettors, or are they a consistent fade?
On the offensive glass, Arizona dreadfully ranks dead last for goals, and shots, and second to last on their powerplay. These woes made possible by 1.9 goals, on 25.7 shots per game. Moreover, their powerplay is only scoring on 12.5 percent of their chances.
Defensively, The Coyotes are allowing a brutal 3.7 goals, on 33.1 shots per outing. Which ranks across the league; a terrible 32nd for goals, and 26th for shots.
Additionally, they’ve only successfully stopped opposing teams powerplays, 70.1% of the time. For substance, this also ranks a pathetic 31st in the league.
San Jose Sharks
Before the break, The Sharks squad went 5 and 5 in their last 10 games, resulting in a .500 record. However, San Jose lost all 3 games played as a favorite, which is important as they’re the favorite in this matchup.
Offensively, they’re currently struggling, only getting off an average of 29.3 shots per game, which has resulted in 2.6 goals per outing. Unfortunately, these stats have equated in a terrible ranking of 27th, and 24th combined.
Although, San Jose’s powerplay squad has been producing, scoring on 18.9% of their chances. Which ranks an okay, 16th in the NHL.
On the defensive board, The Sharks play their best hockey, season in and season out. To give a few instances, they’re only allowing 2.8 goals, on 30.4 shots per matchup. Which places them 14th, and 10th league wide, respectfully.
Important to note, their best attribute is their defensive powerplay efficiency, only allowing opposing squads to score on 14.7% of their chances. Which places The Sharks on PK%, number five in the entire NHL.

Free Arizona Coyotes vs. San Jose Sharks NHL Prediction
Fair to note, San Jose has been decimated by The Coyotes in recent past. For example, Arizona has won 7 out of their last 10 matchups, including 4 out of their last 5.
That being said, all of this happened before The Coyotes collapse this year, as they last played in May 2021. Due to this, the current trends should overpower last years in this situation.
4* Free NHL Betting Pick: UNDER 5.5
With all the uncertainty across the league, even against this atrocious Coyotes team, the safer bet is to lean with the current total trends.
Due to this, the under carries the best value in this game as both offenses struggle to get anything going, and both are cashing it consistently.
