Canada vs Sweden Olympic Gold Medal Game Odds

Published on February 21st, 2014 3:46 pm EST
Canada will be taking on Sweden in the gold medal game of Men's Hockey at the Olympics on Sunday.

Both teams had sweats to get into the gold medal game - Sweden eked out a victory over Finland 2-1, while Canada was able to subdue the high-flying and high-scoring American squad 1-0 to advance.

The Canadians are the defending gold medalists, while Sweden won it all in 2006. Who will come out on top on Sunday?

Sweden is dealing with a number of key injuries (Zetterberg, etc), while Canada is having trouble finding the net. Will it be another low-scoring game on Sunday, or will the Canadian offense finally break out?

Canada has opened as the favourite - here are the current betting odds:

Sweden, 2.50
Canada, 1.55

That is the money line. So, if you were to bet $100 on the Canadian team, you would stand to win a total profit of $55 if they ended up winning the gold medal.

A successful $100 wager on Sweden, on the other hand, would yield a total return on your investment of $150.

Here is the puck line:

Sweden, +1.5, 1.45
Canada, -1.5, 2.80

The totals:

Over 4.5 goals, 1.90
Under 4.5 goals, 1.90

The 3-way betting lines:

Sweden, 0.0, 3.25
Canada, 0.00, 2.00
Tie, 4.10


Can Canada, led by goaltender Carey Price, win a second straight gold medal in Men's Hockey on Sunday, or will Sweden be able to pull off the upset?
