NHL Hockey: Tuesday, February 12th 2019 10:00 PM EST TIME
The Arizona Coyotes are hoping to turn around their season before the playoff race begins as they make the short trip over to Las Vegas to take on the Golden Knights. As for the Knights, they are picking up pace.
Losing Streak Broken
The Arizona Coyotes are coming off a much-needed win as they recently saw their losing streak come to a close. It was an impressive win against the Dallas Stars on Saturday night as won a close one by the final score of 3-2. During that five-game losing streak, the Coyotes were unable to take care of the Montreal Canadiens, San Jose Sharks, Dallas Stars, Nashville Predators and Columbus Blue Jackets. Four of those losses were on the road as this should be a sign of concern with the Coyotes back on the road again to take on the Knights. The Coyotes come into this game with holding an 24-26-4 overall record with being 14-13-2 on the road this season. However, they do hold an impressive 21-8 puck line record on the road.

The Arizona Coyotes have one of the worst attacks in the game as they come into this Vegas showdown with only scoring 2.60 goals per game which is 28th in the league. On the flip side, their back line is where the party is at as they are only allowing 2.91 goals per game which is 13th in the league.
The Las Vegas Golden Knights are looking to get back to their consistent ways again as they come into this game with another loss under their belt. The Knights have been trading wins and losses to start the 2019 year, but have yet to really get a winning streak going. The Knights have won two of the past six games as they are ready for this home-stand and battle of Arizona right here. The Knights have had success against the Coyotes as of late as this should be the perfect start for them to get back on track. The Las Vegas Knights come into this game with holding a 21-22-3 overall record and with an even better record at home with being 16-7-2 this season. The Puck line has been average for them this season as they have covered 13 of the 26 puck lines at home.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.
Full-Game Side Bet
The money line is too step here as the puck line would have to do here. The Coyotes do have an impressive puck line record, however they have not covered it in the past three road games. Give me the Knights here.
Prediction: Knights -1.5
Full-Game Total Pick
Very simple math and trends here. Two great defenses in the league = the under hitting. The Under is 4-0 in Golden Knights last 4 games as a favorite of -110 to -150 as well as 3-0-1 in Golden Knights last 4 Tuesday games.
