NHL Online Betting Odds:
The Hurricanes rip into this Friday night contest sporting a meager 6-5-1 record that pegs them as the 4th best team in the Metropolitan Division. With a 13-point tally on the season, Carolina is just 2-points behind the division leading Pittsburgh Penguins. With that in mind, it’s clear that Carolina is still very much alive in this year’s divisional chase. Fortunately, they’re going up against a middle of the pack opponent on the road this evening. On top of that, the Hurricanes have a 7-2-1 record versus the Yotes in their last 10 meetings. With that in mind, it’s clear that history favors Carolina this NHL online betting evening. Surprisingly, Carolina is facing some rather favorable odds on the road this evening. Ultimately this makes them an excellent straight up option for bettors looking to make some last minute betting predictions.
Players to Watch: Sebastian Aho (4 G, 13 A, 17 PTS.), Teuvo Teravainen (3 G, 8 A, 11 PTS.), and Micheal Ferland (7 G, 4 A, 11 PTS.).
The Arizona Coyotes enter this Friday night contest sporting a 6-5-0 record that pegs them as the 3rd worst team in the Pacific Division. With a 12-point tally on the season, Arizona is 5-points behind the division leading Calgary Flames. Clearly Arizona needs a win this evening in order to avoid digging too big a hole for themselves to climb out of. One thing that is surprising about this year’s Yotes is that they currently claim the NHL’s No. 1 defense. Nevertheless, they rank 25th in scoring and 31st in power play percentage, which explains their current record. But if Arizona is able to make a couple of trades, and work out a few offensive kinks, they should have no problem competing for a spot in this year’s postseason.
Players to Watch: Clayton Keller (5 G, 3 A, 8 PTS.), Oliver Ekman-Larsson (1 G, 5 A, 6 PTS.), and Derek Stepan (2 G, 4 A, 6 PTS.).
