Bet on Team Canada Women vs USA in Sochi 2014 Final

bet on team canada women vs usa

Our Canadian women have breezed through to the Sochi 2014 gold medal game with relative ease and are now facing their arch-rival,the USA womens team, for a chance at Olympic hockey glory. The rivalry between these two teams can be intense, and the betting odds are tight with Team Canada as the slight underdogs going into the gold medal game…

Team Canada women will be going for a 4th straight gold medal in the Winter Olympics, but come in is as the (+105) odds underdogs to Team USA with the total goals set at 4.5. Part of the reason that Team Canada are considered the underdogs could be how easily USA was able to get past Sweden, while Canada didn’t deal with with a weaker Switzerland team as easily as expected, being favoured by 6 goals.

Although Team Canada were 6 goal favourites over Switzerland, the final score was 3-1, but their offence was stifled by poor ice conditions caused by humid weather surrounding the arena. Against a defensive minded team like Switzerland, this was a big disadvantage, as the only time Canada was able to score was 3 goals in a quick 4 minute offensive burst.

But it was not the offensive output of Team Canada that the Americans are focused on. It is Team Canada’s defense that they feel is the weak spot. Members of Team USA have come out  to the media and said they would like to test what they felt was a weak Canadian blue line, which coul which could be seen as a legitimate threat considering the 70 shots they put up against Sweden. But Canadian coach Kevin Dineen and his team are not taking part in the pre-game trash talk, instead preferring to do their talking on the ice.

“I’m not going to bite,” Canadian coach Kevin Dineen said when asked to comment on what some perceived to be light “trash” talk from the Americans.

“Let’s not do that song and dance. Let’s play the game.”

With these two teams the tensions will always run deep, and there is no wonder why the rivalry between these two teams is so intense, considering they have played each other in the gold medal game at 4 out of the 5 Winter Olympics that featured womens hockey. And the tensions between these two teams have been known to boil over, like the brawl that errupted between these two teams during a pre-Olympic exhibition game. That is what makes this gold medal game a “must watch”.
