Arizona Coyotes Stats & Form
The Arizona Coyotes finally got their first win in the 11th game of the season when they beat the Seattle Kraken 5-4 on Sunday. It took André Tourigny 22 days since the start of the season to reach his first victory as a head coach. The Coyotes had 11 starting losses four seasons ago when Scott Wedgewood was the starting goalie and they needed his help on Friday to escape an even worse start.
Wedgewood was picked up of waivers recently and entered the game to save 27 shots after Seattle took a 2-0 lead on their first two attempts. Previously, the Coyotes lost all ten games of the season, nine of them in the regular time and eight of them with at least two-goal differential.

Arizona Coyotes vs Minnesota Betting Tips
This one looks pretty easy as the Coyotes have only one win in their last of the 11 games this season. It is pretty hard to imagine that they will go for back-to-back wins after such a start especially against a team like the Wind. Minnesota has played tough this season against the best teams and they have a winning tradition against Arizona.
The Wild will not waste the opportunity for a fourth consecutive win against a weak opponent and it seems like only the goal difference is questionable. If the -130 odds are low for your standards, you can add Minnesota to win with at least two goals difference which stands at 115. Betting on Minnesota win with over 5.5 goals is also a good choice at 170.
