Team Outlook and Scouting Report

LONG TERM OUTLOOK: TRENDING UP

The Coyotes are competing to make the playoffs and their chances are clearly on the rise. In our pre-season forecast they had a 2.5% chance of making the playoffs. On 10/18 they had a 0.1% chance before increasing to 63.1% on 3/16. From the start of the season to now their chances are up significantly to 58.2%. They have virtually no chance at getting home ice advantage in the first round. Their chances of getting out of the first round is 7% and their chances of reaching the conference finals is 1.65%. The odds still give them a sliver of hope to win the West at 2.4% (40/1 odds) and a 1.2% chance of winning it all (80/1).
