Money Line Pick

Two teams fighting for playoff contention will face off on Saturday night. The Blackhawks had been riding a five-game win streak, but saw it get snapped in their last game against the Florida Panthers. This was a game they lost 4-3. Chicago now trails Arizona by four points for the last playoff spot in the West. Speaking of Arizona, they are in a free fall right now, having lost four in a row and seven of their last eight. Note that Chicago is 7-1 in their last 8 road games, and 8-3 in their last 11 games as an underdog. They are also 10-4 in their last 14 games played in Arizona. The Coyotes are complete fade material right now and there is no way I am laying the price posted. That said, I will take the Blackhawks to win this game at plus money as a lean.

Over Under Pick

This is a total to stay away from because of how inconsistent the Coyotes have been. Over their last four games (all losses), they are averaging just 2 goals per game. As for Chicago, they are scoring 4.5 over their last four. The over is 7-1 in the last eight games where Arizona was favored and 2-0 in the last two meetings. This is not a game I am betting, but the over is the only way I would look.
