The most recent game between the two teams, played on October 30, 2023, was a lopsided affair with the Arizona Coyotes dominating the Chicago Blackhawks with an 8-1 victory. The Coyotes’ offensive onslaught was led by Connor Bedard, Michael Carcone, Jack McBain, and Liam O’Brien, each netting two goals. The Coyotes were particularly effective during even-strength play, where they scored seven of their eight goals. Chicago’s lone goal came from Bedard, who managed to find the net despite his team’s overall struggles. Arizona’s goaltender, Connor Ingram, had an impressive night, saving 29 out of 30 shots for a save percentage of 0.967.

Chicago Blackhawks vs. Arizona Coyotes Predictions

The Coyotes return to Mullett Arena with a sense of optimism after ending their road trip with consecutive victories, including an impressive win over the Washington Capitals. Arizona’s offense has been sparked by the play of young stars like Dylan Guenther, who has tallied five points in the past two games. Despite their position at the bottom of the Western Conference, the Coyotes have shown they can be competitive, especially with Clayton Keller leading the team in goals and points. Defensively, they’ll look to maintain their recent form, which has seen them outscore opponents 10-5 over the last two games.

On the other side, the Chicago Blackhawks are in dire straits. They’ve been unable to find any form of consistency this season, with their last road win dating back to November. Rookie sensation Connor Bedard continues to be a bright spot, leading the team in goals, assists, and points, but he’ll need more support from his teammates if they’re to break their losing streak. Chicago’s defense and goaltending have been areas of concern, with the team allowing the fourth-most goals per game in the league. They’ll face a tough test against an Arizona team that has found its scoring touch.

This game could come down to special teams and goaltending. The Coyotes have been more effective on the power play and have received stronger performances in net, which could be the difference-maker. For the Blackhawks, it’s about finding a way to play cohesive hockey and getting contributions across the lineup. As these two teams face off, all eyes will be on whether Arizona can continue their upward trend or if Chicago can finally put an end to their woes on the road.

Chicago Blackhawks vs. Arizona Coyotes Pick

The Arizona Coyotes have shown resilience and an ability to bounce back with their recent back-to-back wins, particularly their victory against the Washington Capitals. With the Blackhawks on a seven-game losing streak and the Coyotes playing on home ice, where they have been historically stronger against Chicago, the odds are in favor of Arizona. The Coyotes’ recent offensive surge, led by Dylan Guenther and Clayton Keller, coupled with their more effective power play, gives them the edge in this matchup. Additionally, the Blackhawks’ persistent road woes and defensive struggles suggest that the Coyotes have a significant advantage going into this game.

While the historic head-to-head data indicates that the home team usually comes out on top, the Coyotes’ recent form and the Blackhawks’ continued struggles provide a strong case for Arizona to prevail. The Coyotes’ goaltending has been more reliable, and their discipline on the ice has led to fewer penalty minutes, which could be crucial in a game that may be decided by special teams. Given these factors, the smart pick is to back the Arizona Coyotes on the moneyline, as they are poised to maintain their momentum and exploit the Blackhawks’ vulnerabilities.

The Pick: Arizona Coyotes -230. (BetRivers)
