World Juniors: Canada to be champions, according to bookmakers

UPGRADE DAY

If the predictions of the Mise-o-jeu + site turn out to be good, Canada will win the gold medal at the World Junior Hockey Championship which began Tuesday in Edmonton.  

A few hours before the first game of the Maple Leaf scheduled against Latvia on Wednesday, the sports betting platform pegged the odds for a triumph for the country in the final at 2.25. More daring hockey fans can try their luck with Finland (4.00) and USA (4.75), while Sweden are also well regarded at 5.75.

Behind , nations like the Czech Republic (18.00) and Slovakia (34.00) will be big bucks if they upset the gold. Also, the site does not really believe in the chances of Germany and Switzerland, quoted at 91.00. For their part, Austria (601.00) and the Latvians (751.00) are the underdogs.

The competition ends on August 20 with the duels for the medals.
