Vegas Golden Knights
Vegas is looking for a big rebound here, after losing their last game to Anaheim, by a heartbreaking margin of 6-5.
Offensively, Vegas has continued their dominance since the berth of hockey in Nevada. Per game, they’re currently averaging 3.2 goals, on 33 shots. Which respectably ranks 11th, and 10th in the NHL.
On the defensive board, The Golden Knights can’t seem to put anything together this year. Unfortunately, they currently rank 24th on goals, and 25th for shots. By way of allowing on average of 3.2 goals, on 33.3 shots per outing.
In addition, they rank mid-tier at 14th for their defensive powerplay efficacy, with a 82.5 PK%.
The Coyotes enter this tilt after a expected 5-2 loss at home against The Minnesota Wild. Fair to note, the game prior Arizona upset Winnipeg via shutout.
On the offensive glass, The Yote’s rank dead last on shots, and goals per matchup. Made possible by a shockingly low 1.8 goals, on 25.4 shots. Furthermore, they’ve had zero help from their 28th ranked powerplay, only scoring 12.7% of the time.
Defensively, Arizona sadly ranks 28th for shots and goals, by getting scored on 3.5 times on 33.7 shots per game. Moreover, their PK% is disastrous, at 72.4%.
If there wasn’t enough negative to speak about this team, their goaltender starting here has a 7.76 goals against average.

Free Vegas Golden Knights vs. Arizona Coyotes NHL Prediction
The Golden Knights are the far superior team on paper, however Arizona has pulled off some big dog upsets this year. Nonetheless, Arizona’s brutal offense will have a tough time with goaltender, Robin Lehner.
To boot, Vegas’ impressive offense should light up the horrible, Carter Hutton. Also important to note, Vegas has a 80% win rate against Arizona, since the start of the franchise.
With all that being said, no value exists on the moneyline, however the goal total screams value.
4* Free NHL Betting Pick: UNDER 5.5
Arizona has a very tough time scoring, as they rank dead last in multiple offensive categories, including goals per match. Over and above, Vegas carries a competent offense that should exploit this downright bad defense.
Additionally, these squads have cashed the under, in 80% of their tilts since 2018. For extra peace of mind, Vegas is only scoring 3.3 goals on average, while Coyotes are scoring 1.8.
Which results in these teams scoring 5.2 goals per game combined, which also falls under our total.
