Arizona Coyotes vs Winnipeg Jets Hockey Betting Tip
Arizona Coyotes vs Winnipeg Jets Hockey Betting Tip 11/21/15 Arizona still flying under the radar, and they love it. Puck the media, that’s how I see it. The Yotes are averaging 2.8 goals per game and are scoring on 13.5 percent of their power plays. Max Domi leads Arizona with eight goals, Martin Hanzal has 14 assists and Anthony Duclair has 26 shots on goal. Max Domi is no joke by the way, this kid will get his name on a Stanley Cup a couple of times during his career.
This is a very solid and balanced offensive squad that comes in ranked 10th in the league in scoring at 2.8 gpg, but they do struggle on the power play where they rank 29th in the league, converting on just 13.5% of their chances.
Goaltender Mike Smith had a very good night vs Montreal on Thursday as he came up with 31 saves in Arizona’s 3-2 road win. Smith does have a 3.02 goals against average on the year, but he is also 8-6 on the year as well. Defensively, the Arizona Coyotes are allowing 2.9 goals per game and are killing 82.2 percent of their power play chances. Which is huge. Anders Lindback has allowed 12 goals on 142 shots faced and Mike Smith has given up 42 goals on 437 shots. Smith has allowed eight goals in his last three games.
Finally, the Jets snapped a 6 game losing streak and should be poised to get back on track. Then again, this is Winnipeg we are talking about. However, five of the losses during the losing streak were on the road. It was a stretch of eight games out of nine that they had played on the road, so maybe now with some home games they will get back to winning.
Getting the win for the Jets was Ondrej Pavelec, who had 30 saves in the game to improve his record at 5-7 with a 2.81 goals against average on the year. He needed this performance after allowing four goals in each of his previous three games played.
Winnipeg checks in at 14th in the league in scoring (2.7 goals per game) and 23rd in power play conversions (15.9%), while on defense they rank 26th in goals allowed (3.1 goals per game) and 15th in penalty kill (80.5%). eekkkk
