Tournament: Ice Hockey World Championships
Another round of the World Championships in Slovakia will be played between USA and Finland.
Americans have already made one sensation having lost to Slovakia with the score 1:4 and despite the presence of such players as Patrick Kane, James van Riemsdyk, Johnny Gaudreau, Alex DeBrincat or Ryan Suter they were not able to fight against well-organized hockey team, that was playing on home ice. It is a well- known fact that the North American teams usually experience some problems in the beginning of the tournament.
Suomi have also brought sensation in their first tournament match having won over Canada City with the score 3:1. It should be mentioned that the hockey team from Finland has come to this tournament with not very strong line-up. They are lacking practically all players from NHL and KHL but despite this Finland has showed very good hockey and the leader of the team is now the star of Finnish hockey – the 18th years old Kaapo Kakko who has managed to score double.
The hockey club from Finland resembles the team from Slovakia. In mental point of view. It is also well-organized and without key players it can’t rely on the class of the players. Also it tries to mobilize and not to risk that is why USA won’t have an easy time. Despite the fact that the team of Jeff Blashill is higher in class we believe that the game will be intense and will finish with hockey under outcome.
Our tip: total under (5.5) – odds 1.62
