Team Canada and Team Europe are the final teams standing in the World Cup of Hockey since they currently get set to face off at a best-of-three string to determine who will wear the crown until the NHL determines the following championship will be held.
Canada beat Europe 4-1 if they met in round-robin play, dealing Europe its only loss.
The total has gone OVER 6 in just among Canada and Europe’s 8 games that were different.
Canada has scored 4.75 targets per match in the WCH while Europe has scored 2.5 per match.
Canada is coming from a 5-3 win against the Russians in the semifinals at a game in. The group that has led the match in shots is 8-6 so far in this tournament but if you remove the Americans’ information from that metric, it goes to 8-3 — that the U.S. outshot their opponents in every game but went 0-3, skewing the information. Canada outshot Europe by 26 when they last met of the duty will fall on the shoulders of Jaroslav Halak, assuming he gets the start in net for Europe.
Team Europe has demonstrated pretty much everybody wrong at this tournament so far and has a chance to pay off people who backed them from the start as they once had +3300 chances to take gold and were +1000 heading to the semis. As I’ve stated all along can win a baseball game by himself. Europe is offering +575 moneyline chances for Game 1 and together with how Halak has been enjoying, I have a hard time not taking BetOnline on that.
Canada comes back as the -1000 favorites in the first of three games that are potential and, yes, they will win. I do expect the Europeans to compete, however, and I’d only take Canada -1 or -1.5. The moneyline is providing no worth whatsoever and the spread in 2.5 is a bit too broad for me. I believe this match finishes 3-1 in favor of Team Canada so Europe +2.5 creates a lot of sense to me.
