World Juniors 2016 Odds

In Hockey, by on Dec 29, 2015
The World Juniors 2016 tournament is already underway and after a few games the only thing we have learned is that the games are just not as predictable as betting on the favourite to win any game or the tournament as well. Canada came into the tournament as the favourite as Canadians love their hockey and will always bet hard for Canada to win every game and the tournament itself. They lost to the United States in the opening match while USA lost to Sweden in their next match to leave Group A wide open with any possible outcome. Switzerland might even get relegated as they are considered to have a decent team. Canada itself only took 2 points from Switzerland and it is starting to look like Sweden could win Group A with Canada and USA going to the quarter finals while Russia is looking to be in the semi-finals while Finland and either Czech Republic or Slovakia will fight it out for the other spot.

Where to bet on the World Juniors 2016

We have a few recommended sportsbooks to play at. guts odds   In pool B, Russia is running away with the group and looks to clearly move on to the semi-finals. Finland is considered another tournament favourite and they should be the #2 team in the group where it is quite possible Canada could face Finland in the quarter finals which is a brutal matchup. If Canada does win, they would have the potential to play against USA or Sweden in a semi-finals and if they are lucky to keep winning, could be Russia in the finals. Not the easy path to trying to repeat as gold medal champions.

Betting tips

This tournament is too tough to bet on. All games against Canada are dangerous to pick and quite often you are better off betting against them for the huge payout available. There are not many sites offering betting props so you are usually stuck with individual game odds. At Sports Interaction they have better odds where you can pick the money line and bet on the over/under. For the top games that involve any teams going head to head like Canada, USA, Finland and Sweden, you can expect tight games and lower scoring. Throw in Russia into that mix and everything can change as the Russians can score and are known to not always have the best defense on average.
