The Colorado Avalanche and Arizona Coyotes hookup for a second consecutive night in Glendale where the Avs will look to make it two wins in as many nights.
Let’s take a look at this a Western Division clash on February 27, 2021 from a betting perspective in our Avalanche vs. Coyotes betting preview with odds, picks and predictions.
Avalanche vs. Coyotes Betting Preview
The Avalanche picked up a tough 3-2 victory last night against the Coyotes in what was a very physical matchup.
The Avalanche scored three goals in the latter half of the contest, but Arizona kept up the pressure and rallied back to score two in the last two minutes of regulation, nearly completing their third straight comeback in as many games. However, Colorado was able to hold on and escape with the narrow victory.
Helping lead the way, Colorado backup goaltender Hunter Miska made 16 saves over 18 shots faced for his first NHL career victory.

Bets We Like With a Coyotes Win
Conor Garland to Score a Goal Anytime (+270, DraftKings)
The 24-year old forward picked up an assist last night, giving him four points in his last three contests. Despite heating up in terms of points, he still has no goals since Feb. 18th when he scored against Los Angeles. Garland has two goals and an assist in four career games versus Colorado, and I like for him to score this evening.
He has been active, and, well, he’s due.
Bets We Like With an Avalanche Win
Nathan MacKinnon to Score a Goal Anytime (+125, FanDuel)
Colorado’s top player picked up an assist yesterday, along with three shots on goal, which MacKinnon has done now in six consecutive games. Generating such consistent pressure in recent games, I look for him to finally find the back of the net tonight in this rematch showdown.

Bets We Like Independent of the Outcome
First Period UNDER 1.5 Goals (-112 DraftKings)
Colorado has gone under in eight its last eleven games to the first period total and with their regular starter Philipp Grubauer in net tonight and Darcy Kuemper expected to go for Arizona, I expect another slow starting contest here this evening.
Avalanche vs. Coyotes Prediction
Colorado played a solid defensive game for the majority of last night’s contest, and with their regular starter Grubauer back in net, I’m going to go with the same result — and same score — with 3-2 victory tonight.
