Arizona vs Edmonton: prediction for the NHL game
Arizona have finally started to earn points. In the last four games, the Coyotes suffered only one defeat: they lost at home to Columbus in a penalty shootout (4:5 SO). In the following game, the Coyotes beat Detroit in overtime (2:1 OT), mostly thanks to a great performance of their goalie Wedgewood, who saved 97% of all shots on goal.
In the last fixture, Arizona defeated Los Angeles away with the same score (2:1 OT), and this time the goalbox was defended by Vejmelka, who had an amazing game, too.
Lately, Edmontonplayed most of their games away from home. The team can't build a long winning streak and keeps alternating between successful games and defeats. The Oilers definitely look stronger at home, where they recently beat Winnipeg (2:1 SO) and Chicago (5:2). Draisaitl and McDavid had a terrific game against the Blackhawks and each chalked up two points.
The Oilers failed to build on their success and got crushed in the last outing against Dallas (1:4).
In 4 out of 5 head-to-head games, the teams scored in each period.
Edmonton scored first in 4 out of 5 head-to-head games.
Arizona haven't lost in regulation for four games in a row. It looks like the Coyotes have found their footing, and they finally started to earn points. Edmonton don't always deliver their best performance away, so we suggest taking a risk and playing Arizona's victory with a positive handicap.
Our prediction - handicap (+1.5) to Arizona

Arizona tries to play defensive hockey of late, which has been paying off. We don't think this will be a high-scoring game.
Second bet - total under 6 goals
