Bet Monday NHL: Peterson picks Anaheim Ducks vs St. Louis Blues, Los Angeles Kings vs Arizona Coyotes
Anaheim Ducks (+250) @ St. Louis Blues (-200), 8 pm EDT
The St. Louis Blues (23-19-7) are sitting in fourth place in the West and have recent victories over the Minnesota Wild and Colorado Avalanche. A mediocre team for most of this season, St. Louis has flipped the script and won four of their past five games while averaging 4.2 goals in that stretch. On Monday night, the Blues will play host to the Anaheim Ducks (16-29-7) who are 2-3 in their last five games and likely won't offer much resistance. Take St. Louis on the Puck Line here.
PICK: St. Louis Blues -1.5 (+107)
Los Angeles Kings (+123) @ Arizona Coyotes (-148), 10 pm EDT
The Arizona Coyotes (22-24-6) sit just outside of a playoff spot in the West and they are playing with the kind of desperation one would expect from a team in that situation. Being on the outside looking in can't be a fun place to be. Fresh off of a 3-2 loss to Vegas last time out, Arizona managed to dominate Vegas in the meeting prior which speaks volumes considering the Golden Knights lead the Western division. The Coyotes will play host to the lackluster Los Angeles Kings (19-24-6) who were soundly defeated by the struggling Anaheim Ducks last time out, 6-2. Take Arizona on the Moneyline.
PICK: Arizona Coyotes (-148)
