Russia vs Czech Republic Russia May 13th, 2019 10:15 am (ET) Ondrej Nepala Arena Czech Republic Bet Now With 888Sport Tip –This should be the first real test of the tournament for Russia who took on Norway and Austria in their first two games of the competition. However, with the squad that the Russians are bringing with them to Slovakia, they will expect to steamroll past the Czech Republic and cruise to top spot in Group B. However, they will have to be careful because the Czech Republic are no pushover and will be looking for an important result themselves. The Czechs also have the quality in their squad to pull off an upset thanks to some NHL and KHL veterans. Go with the Russians to earn their third consecutive win of the tournament on all relevant betting sites though in what should be a tightly contested affair. Slovakia vs Canada Slovakia May 13th, 2019 2:15 pm (ET) Steel Arena Canada Bet Now With 888Sport Tip –The hosts will be looking to make a statement against one of the tournament favourites when they take on the Canadians in prime time on Monday evening. The crowd will definitely be into this one, but probably won’t be enough to help Slovakia topple the monster that is Canada. With stars like Mark Stone, Kyle Turris, Sam Reinhart and a plethora of others, it will be difficult for the Slovakians to come away with a victory in this one. Canada’s squad is made up entirely of NHL players which could mean an early adjustment period in the tournament as they get accustomed to playing on the bigger ice surface, but still should have no problems dismissing the home team. Take the Canadians and the over. Norway vs Sweden Norway May 13th, 2019 2:15 pm (ET) Ondrej Nepala Arena Sweden Bet Now With 888Sport Tip –Sweden has the luxury of getting to ease into the competition taking on both Italy and Norway within their first three games. While they do have to play the Czech Republic in their opener, they get two straight games that will be looking forward to. While Norway doesn’t possess a single NHL player, Sweden is stacked as they look to win their third consecutive World Hockey Championship gold medal. They will have no issues taking on Norway in what should be a lopsided victory and one that could be over before the first period ends. Take the Swedes to win by multiple goals with the over also looking like a lock. USA vs Finland USA May 13th, 2019 10:15 pm (ET) Steel Arena Finland Bet Now With 888Sport Tip –In what should be the most entertaining game of the day, the Americans and Fins will lock horns in a crucial Group A battle. While the Americans will surely enter the contest as the favourites, the Fins are no pushovers and will be a handful. Unlike the USA though, Finland does not have very much NHL star power and could be overwhelmed by the quality that the Americans possess. The under is probably the best bet on all your favourite betting sites, but the United States should also be worth laying money on.
