The winning streak was fun while it lasted, and it only lasted for two games. The Red Wings picked up back-to-back wins over the Winnipeg Jets and Montreal Canadiens after losing their previous 12 games. Since those two wins, Detroit has lost three straight to the Los Angeles Kings, Columbus Blue Jackets, and Toronto Maple Leafs. Each of the Red Wings’ last 11 losses have come by two goals or more, making them a popular club to bet against on the -1.5 puckline.

The Red Wings are just 5-13-1 at home this season with a 1-8 record on the moneyline in their last nine games at home according to the OddsShark NHL Database.

Coyotes goaltender Darcy Kuemper has been brilliant this season with a 2.17 goals-against average and .929 save percentage. But after suffering a lower body injury during Arizona’s 8-5 loss to the Minnesota Wild, the Coyotes will have to make due without their starting goaltender for the next few weeks. Antti Raanta takes over as starter and owns a 5-5-2 record with a 2.72 GAA and a .919 save percentage so far this season. Arizona has been one of the league’s best teams on the road this season with a 12-4-3 record and a 14-5 mark on the puckline.

Sunday night’s total is set at 5.5 goals at sports betting sites. The OVER is 5-1 in Detroit’s last six games at home against Arizona.

Detroit has historically fared well against the Coyotes, and the Red Wings won’t have to face them at full strength with Darcy Kuemper out. But the bright spots this season have been few and far between for the Red Wings, and they haven’t been easy to predict. This looks like it could potentially be a low-scoring and competitive game on paper, but time will tell.
