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