Arizona Coyotes @ San Jose Sharks Tips 


The Arizona Coyotes will face the San Jose Sharks in an all-NHL West Division clash on Tuesday, April 27, with a second game scheduled for Thursday. San Jose and Arizona have already played each four times in 2021, with the Coyotes 3-1 up. Arizona are fourth in the NHL West Division, while the Sharks are sixth. 

Both of these teams have been struggling to find form recently. Arizona lost five-straight games, but have turned their fortunes around somewhat, and won two of their last four, including scoring a victory over the LA Kings last time out. However San Jose are in the midst of an eight-match losing streak – the worst run of any team in the NHL right now. 

Based off both teams’ current form, I’m backing Arizona to extend San Jose’s losing run to nine matches on Tuesday, defeating them in a game that will feature around eight goals. 

  • Arizona 4th in NHL West Division
  • Arizona 21-27 this season
  • San Jose 6th in NHL West Division
  • San Jose 18-29 this season 

Head to Head


The Arizona Coyotes and the San Jose Sharks have played each other a total of 91 times in NHL regular season games. Currently, San Jose lead their head-to-head by 53 wins to 38. In eleven matches since the start of 2018, Arizona are 7-4 up. In their most recent game in March this year, the Coyotes were victorious 4-0. 

Arizona Coyotes Form


The Arizona Coyotes are currently fourth in the NHL West Division. Arizona have played 48 games and picked up 47 points, with 21 wins, 22 defeats and 5 overtime losses which earned the Coyotes an additional point each time.  Arizona are 3-7 in their last ten games, although after losing 5-straight, they have now won two of their last four matches. 

After losing successive games to the Minnesota Wild, Arizona scored a 4-0 win over the Los Angeles Kings, their biggest win since defeating the San Jose Sharks by the same score in March. On the score sheet for Arizona that night was veteran winger Phil Kessel, who is the Coyotes’ leading goal scorer this season with 17. 

San Jose Sharks Form


The San Jose Sharks are currently sixth in the NHL West Division, spending most of the season in the bottom two. San Jose have played 47 games, winning 18 and losing 29, five of which were overtime shootouts. The Sharks are on 41 points, one more than 7th placed LA Kings, and six clear of the Anaheim Ducks. 

At the start of April, San Jose put together a run of four wins in five games, their best sequence of results all season. Unfortunately, that run has been followed by their worst sequence of 2021 – eight-straight defeats. Their last outing was a 6-3 loss to the Minnesota Wild on Sunday (April 25).

Verdict

Both of these teams are struggling right now, but while the Arizona Coyotes losing run of five games was pretty bad, the San Jose Sharks losing streak of eight-straight matches and counting is positively cataclysmic. And while the Coyotes have now won two of their last four, the Sharks are yet to see any light at the end of the tunnel.
 
I’m backing Arizona to add to San Jose’s woes by handing them yet another defeat on Tuesday. The reasoning behind this pick is that the Coyotes have beaten the Sharks three times out of four meetings in 2021, and their current form is better.
 
Arizona will win a game that will feature around eight goals, with the Coyotes no.1 hitman Phil Kessel my pick for Anytime Goalscorer.
Best Bet: Arizona Winner @-120.48 at BetMGM - 1 Unit
