2016 World Cup of Hockey Outright Betting Odds And Prediction

This year, the 2016 World Cup of Hockey will be held from Sept. 17 to Oct. 1. 150 of the best players in the world will take the ice in (YES) Toronto at the Air Canada Centre. Which means, someone will finally win a hockey championship on Toronto ice. Sorry Leaf fans, we couldn’t help it.

2016 World Cup Of Hockey Preview And Prediction

TEAM CANADA WINS THE 2016 WORLD CUP OF HOCKEY @-150

It would not be just unpatriotic to bet against Team Canada, it would be a bad idea. And why wouldn’t we be? It’s on our home ice. The crowds are going to be insanely behind the team. Home ice advantage will be redefined. Also, we’ve dominated the world’s stage lately, by winning gold at the Olympics in 4 straight olympiads.

Sure, Team USA is stacked, hates us, is sick of losing to us, and would love to crush us in the finals on our home ice. But you need more than hate to win in international hockey. You need players, experience, and goaltending. And Team Canada has all of that with a roster made up of Corey Crawford, Braden Holtby, Carey Price, Drew Doughty, Duncan Keith, Marc-Edouard Vlasic, Shea Weber, Jamie Benn, Patrice Bergeron, Jeff Carter, Sidney Crosby, Ryan Getzlaf, Tyler Seguin, Steven Stamkos, John Tavares, and Jonathan Toews

That roster and that home ice. Feel free to bet against them, but it’s not the smartest way to go. Nice paydays await you, if you decide to (silently, of course) back Russia or the US. But they’re going to overcome hostile crowds, and Team Canada’s depth at every position.

Who will you choose? The world is watching.
