NHL Free Pick | Jets at Coyotes
Today’s free play comes from the desert when the Arizona Coyotes play host to the Winnipeg Jets. The Jets are number one in the Central with 78 points while the Coyotes are currently on the outside of the playoffs looking in, with 61 points, 4 behind the Avalanche who are holding down the final playoff spot in the West. The value in this one is just too much to pass up, let me explain.
Game: Winnipeg Jets (37-20-4, 26-35 ATS) at Arizona Coyotes (28-28-5, 38-23 ATS)
When: 9:00 PM ET, Sunday, February 24th, 2019
Where: Gila River Arena, Glendale, Arizona
Current Line: WIN -135 ARI +115 Total: 6

Although the Jets are in the midst of their worst run of the season, losers of 6 of their last nine, including two 3-game losing streaks, at -135, the Jets moneyline is a bargain on the road against the Coyotes.
Arizona had lost 5 in a row before winning 5 of their last seven, but 3 of those wins came on the road. Arizona are currently ranked 10th in the West, but have the worse record home at 11-14-3. Even the LA Kings, who are second last to only the lowly Ottawa Senators in points, have more home wins than the Coyotes do. In fact, the 11 home wins are a league worst!

Up and down the lineup the Jets are stronger than the Coyotes. Arizona’s top line consists of Lawson Crouse, Derek Stepan and Josh Archibald. Sure they have a decent top defensive pairing, but even with Dustin Byfuglien on the shelf, the Jet trio manning the blue line for the Jets, Trouba, Morrissey and Myers, more than make up for it.
Jets backup goalie Laurent Brossoit is the confirmed starter against Darcy Kuemper, but with a 10-3-2 record, 2.41 GAA and .931 save %, you won’t see much of a drop-off there either.
Oh, one more thing (I feel like Columbo [yes, dating myself]), now that Patrik Laine finally broke his goal drought with 2 last night, he just may win the game himself tonight. Find yourself a prop bet on Laine scoring a goal, and bet on him tonight as well.

Sticking with the NFL on Saturday worked out for us, so let’s give it another try. San Francisco heads to Denver and both starting quarterbacks are expected to see some action. It probably won’t be for long, which will likely have an effect on our outcome. * Increase your bookie business 10 times, all while Read More…
I dipped into this series on Friday night, and although it didn’t come easy, I took the Giants +126 for the win. The Giants had a 7-2 lead going into the bottom of the 8th, only to allow 5 runs in the bottom of the 8th. Neither team scored in the 9th, both scored two Read More…
The NFL has been tough on me lately, but I’m going to stick with it for Saturday’s pick. In Week 15 of the 2019 regular season, Dallas and the L.A. Rams will meet in a game that will likely have playoff implications. This preseason Week 2 game is much less important, but it does have Read More…
