Buffalo Sabres vs Arizona Coyotes: Game Night Lines and NHL Prediction

Buffalo Sabres vs Arizona Coyotes: Game Night Lines and NHL Prediction
National Hockey League action is our free pick focus as we preview the Buffalo Sabres vs Arizona Coyotes clash today. The Sabres have enjoyed two days off and sit five points out of a playoff position in the Eastern Conference. Playing on back-to-back nights, Arizona is slumping some as they cling to a slim lead in the race for third place in the Pacific Division. Game time is slated for 7:00 PM ET on December 4, 2015, at the First Niagara Center in Buffalo, New York.

Buffalo Sabres: Young guns are playing a lot of close contests

Following a 4-7-0 season start, Buffalo has played solid hockey recently as the Sabres are 6-5-3 over their last 14 contests. Five of the Sabres last seven losses have by just one goal – including their 5-4 shootout stumble in Detroit on Tuesday. Though just three points higher than they were a year ago at this time, Buffalo has been better at both ends of the ice this season. After posting a dismal -36 GF/GA differential through 25 games last year, Buffalo is tending in the right direction as they are sporting a -9 mark this season. We like the progress of the other, other New York team.

Arizona Coyotes: Two straight blowouts open a five-game road trip

Similar to the Sabres, Arizona is a rebuilding team that’s playing above their preseason expectations. Posted with a gaudy +8000 Western Conference Championship price, on the NHL futures board at Bet365 in early October, the Coyotes are 13-11-1 and they own a slim lead in the race third over Vancouver and Anaheim in the Pacific Division. Moving four wins above .500, after they won three in a row at home, the Coyotes crashed as they opened a five game road trip with a 5-2 pounding by the Predators in Nashville on Tuesday and 5-1 drubbing by the Red Wings in Detroit last night. 

Buffalo vs Arizona NHL Prediction: Overall team confidence has to be considered here. Buffalo played hard as they battled back from a 2-0 deficit in Detroit and the Sabres have earned five of a possible six points during their last three games. Since leading 2-1 after two periods in Nashville, the Coyotes have been outscored by a 9-1 margin over their last four periods of play. Buffalo has won eight of the last ten meetings but these teams split the season series last year as the Sabres won 4-1 in Arizona while the Coyotes posted a 4-3 (OT) victory in Buffalo. Side with the Sabres and a 500 unit wager on the money line price posted on the big board at the Bet365 online sportsbook.
