Betting On The Canada Hockey Team

There’s plenty of chances to bet on Team Canada during the tournament. The standard There’s plenty of chances to bet on Team Canada. The standard way is to bet them straight on the money line. Canada’s odds manifest as a plus or minus number. Plus means they are an underdog and you get a bigger return on your bet. +120 for example means you win $120 on a $100 bet. The minus indicates Canada is a favorite and you need to spend more on them. A -200 betting line indicates you need to bet $200 to win back $100.

Canada easily has the best crop of centers in the whole tournament. When MVP-caliber stars like Sidney Crosby and Jonathan Toews are anchoring the middle, it’s tough to find weakness. Many of Canada’s centers like Steven Stamkos will likely shift to a wing position. The entire forward corps with the exception of one or two players are all capable of generating points at a first-line rate. This will be a prolific group of all-stars.

Team Canada’s defensive corps are also among the best. Led by the likes of Shea Weber and Duncan Keith, Canada has pairs of all-star veterans patrolling the blue line. They are not only capable of stopping pucks but generate scoring chances as well. Their last line of defense will have MVP Carey Price and 2016 NHL wins leader, Braden Holtby as their goalies.

Because of Canada’s reputation as the favorite, betting them straight is expensive. To alleviate this, you can try playing the point spread. Here, you get to bet on Canada at even prices. But Canada is handicapped points they have to “cover”. If Canada has -1.5, it means they have to win by 2 or more goals. This is riskier but more lucrative.
