The Coyotes are 23-50 in their last 73 road games and 22-51 in their last 73 overall. The Maple Leafs are 20-8 in their last 28 home games and 35-16 in their last 51 overall. The over is 5-1 in Coyotes last 6 road games. The over is 25-8-2 in Maple Leafs last 35 overall. The Coyotes are 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in Toronto and 15-6 in the last 21 meetings.

The Arizona Coyotes aren’t a good team, and we’ve been fading them left and right this season, but they’re coming off a strong week and their offense has put together a combined 19 goals in their last three games. While easily the more talented team, the Toronto Maple Leafs have been a bit hit or miss as of late. If there was going to be a time to side with the Coyotes and the big plus money, this would probably be it? I’ll take a shot in the dark here.
