With eight games left on their schedule, the Carolina Hurricanes are locked in a battle with the New York Rangers for the top spot in the NHL's Metropolitan Division. Both teams have 104 points and whoever comes out on top will likely be matched up with the second wild card team in the conference.

The Hurricanes have been handed a gift when it comes to their opponent tonight, as they face the worst team in the league, the Arizona Coyotes. Anything but a win for Carolina tonight would be a colossal disappointment.

Here are the odds via WynnBET for tonight's game.

Hurricanes vs. Coyotes Prediction and Pick

The Coyotes don't just have the worst record in the NHL, they're also statistically the worst team in the league by a wide margin. They're dead last in just about every advanced analytic, including CORSI%, high danger scoring chances allowed, and expected goals against per 60 minutes over their last 25 games.

So, how do we bet on a game that involves a team this bad? The odds are juiced so heavily to the Hurricanes that it makes no sense to bet on Carolina either. Instead, let's find the one thing that the Coyotes don't completely suck at, and base the bet off that.

That one thing is shooting percentage. They're 10th in the NHL over their last 25 games in that category, finding the back of the net on 10.83 percent of shots. Let's hope the Hurricanes score at will, and the Coyotes can use their half-decent shooting to pop a couple of goals themselves.

Lean: OVER 6 (-115)
