Arizona Coyotes Odds, Predictions & 2021-22 Betting Tips
Welcome to the world of legalized sports betting, Arizonans. With Arizona sports betting live since September, no more driving the 301 miles to Vegas to put down a bet on anything.
This may come as a shock to some of you, but there has been a hockey team in the state since 1996. OK, so it hasn’t been all wine and roses, but the Coyotes are still there, and it’s time to analyze their 2021-22 prospects - from a NHL betting perspective. Sportsbooks have some long NHL futures odds listed – are any worth taking a flier on?
Arizona Coyotes Stanley Cup Odds
The Odds: +20000 at DraftKings
Arizona made the playoffs two seasons ago and was in contention for a postseason spot until falling short this past spring. Since, though, the team has lost its coach (Rick Tocchet), starting goalie (Darcy Kuemper) and a few other good players.
The team is back in something of rebuild mode, and so chances of the Stanley Cup coming to Glendale are roughly akin to a roomful of teenagers not checking their phone over a 60-minute period. Next to none. You never know, though. There IS some good young talent on this team, but steer clear of these Stanley Cup odds.

Arizona Coyotes Western Conference Odds
The Odds: +4100 at FanDuel
The Coyotes will move from the Pacific Division to the Central, which probably won’t do them any favors in 2021-22. It’s debatable which is the better conference, but I still give the edge to the West, even though Tampa Bay has won two Cups in a row.

Arizona Coyotes Division Odds
The Odds: +30000 at BetMGM
Arizona will have to face high-quality teams such as Colorado, St. Louis, Dallas, Minnesota and Winnipeg more often now. The betting apps have taken note and made them the longest shot of them all to win the Central. Former goalie Kuemper, now with Colorado, will be a frequent opponent. It could be a long year. Pass on these odds at BetMGM.

Arizona Coyotes Player Props
Norris Trophy: Jakob Chychrun
The Odds: +3500 at DraftKings
This actually is a pretty nice value pick at DraftKings. Chychrun posted 41 points in 56 games last season and is only 23. He is a player on the rise, and he should get a lot of ice time with this edition of the club. He is probably Arizona’s best overall player.
