There has been a lot of talk about parity in the 2016 World Juniors, but according to Oddsmakers at Sports Interaction, Team Canada are actually more likely to win at (+107) odds, which is down from (+150) last year when the tournament took place on Canadian soil.

So, why are Canada even bigger favourites to win in 2016 when the tournament is being hosted in Europe, where they have not won gold since 2008. Part of this is because other countries are not as strong as last year.

Take a look at Team USA, for example. Although all eyes will be on top draft prospect Auston Matthews, but the team lacks depth, at least according to TSN’s director of scouting Craig Button.

“They don’t have depth,” “They left six really good players off the team. To not have them at the camp is a huge oversight. They don’t know the player pool.”

According to oddsmakers, Team USA is the biggest threat to Canada, at (+306). Next up is Sweden at (+423) who are led by Leafs youngster William Nylander. Russia is always lurking at (+535), and the host nation Finland are (+618).

Aside from a few marquee names, none of these teams can match the depth of Canada, who have a roster full of talent that includes Toronto Maple Leafs prospect Mitch Marner, along with Jake Virtanen and Brayden Point, who return from last year’s gold medal squad.
