Arizona Coyotes vs Florida Panthers
Mullett Arena (Tempe, Arizona)
On November 2, Mullett Arena will host a regular season NHL match between Arizona Coyotes and Florida Panthers. The game is scheduled to start at 05:00. We present you a prediction for the upcoming match, offering all the relevant stats for you to place the best bet.
Arizona is one of the perennial underdogs of the NHL who for a long time didn't even bother to make the playoffs. And in the current regular season we shouldn't expect the Coyotes to solve big problems, as their level of ambitions is very modest, as well as the roster, and even better not to speak about a 5,000-seat arena. Therefore, their results at the start of the season are as follows: eight games - six defeats, two wins over Toronto and Columbus 4-2 and 6-3, respectively. Such poor showing leaves Arizona in last but one place in the standings.
Florida also struggled for years among the underdogs in the league, but slowly they began to improve and in the end of the last regular season became the best in the entire NHL, winning the Presidents' Trophy. Alas, their loss in the second round of the playoffs forced Southern's front office to make a series of personnel changes, which should work in the long run. For now, the Red and Blue are unimpressive, as they have only five wins and four losses in nine meetings played, allowing them to sit in sixth place in the Eastern Conference standings.
- Florida has beaten Arizona in the last three consecutive head-to-head encounters. You can bet on Florida's win with odds of 1.58 at Bet365;
- Arizona conceded at least three pucks in four of the last five games. You can bet on Florida's ITO (2.5) pucks at odds of 1.21 at Bet365;
- The last four games featuring Florida were high-scoring. You can bet on TO 5.5 pucks at odds of 1.46 on the line of Bet365.
Expert Betting Tips
The teams whose level of skill and ambition are not comparable. While the Coyotes are the perennial underdogs in the West, the Panthers are one of the leaders in the East in recent years, which by definition makes the visitors the favorites for this game. The Southerners also have the statistics for their head-to-head encounters, according to which they've won their last three meetings, while Andre Tourigny's squad has also lost four straight home games. As a result, we have to bet on Handicap Florida (-1.5) at odds of 1.91 as offered by 1xbet.
Arizona in the current regular championship not only shows very modest results, but also a lot of conceding. In eight meetings, the Coyotes have already allowed 35 shots on goal (4.38 average per game), which is a poor mark. The Panthers have a very strong offensive group that should take advantage of the opponent's problems with defensive constructions, and the optimal betting option seems to be Florida's ITO (3.5) pucks for 1.55 as offered by Bet365. In addition, it is worth taking a closer look at the bet on Carter Verhaeghe's goal for 2.75 at Betway.
Our prediction: Handicap Florida (-1.5) for 1.91 at 1xbet.
