With the Euro Hockey Cup right around the corner, fans will be looking for a good way to make their Euro Hockey Betting fun and exciting. Many sites are offering different odds so it can be tough to decide who the favorite is going to be. So, here is a look at the teams that people have been betting on recently in both the U.S. and Europe and see which one seems the most likely to win.
Team USA vs. Great Britain: This is going to be a very good one because both teams have strong defensive units. The American squad has depth up front with players like Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane, Chris Wondol, Braden Scuderi and Chris Chelios. On the other side of the coin, Great Britain has one of the best defenses in the world, which includes such stars as puck stealer Delaney, Grant defensively forward, Craig Oliver and goalie Craig Anderson. The British also boast some very good offensive players in forwards Mats Hickey, Luke O’Brien, Phil Gaudyer and defensive forward Chris Simon. Team USA has an abundance of skilled players, but the British have just the combination of defense and offense to win this one.
Euro vs Ireland: This one should come as no surprise. Both teams have some very good players in their lineup including stars like Wayne Gretzky and Bobby Orr. This will be an excellent showcase for the newly crowned Euro Hockey League champions. I think the Irish are a better team overall, but I don’t feel that either team is going to score much, which is what typically happens during regular season games. I give the edge to the Irish due to their strong offense and their experience at the international level.
Team Europe vs Finland: This one should be very competitive, as these two teams have some very talented players. Team Europe boasts several high scorers such as Miroslav Satan, Patrik Stefan, and Miroslav Satan. Finland has the tandem of Mikko Koivu and Helsinki teammate Finnish forward Lauri Markkanen. This game is usually pretty evenly matched, so I expect a pretty good outcome here.
World vs World: Traditionally a winter sport, this one pits the best hockey players from the North against the best players from the South. Usually a winner goes to the southern countries. This will be a great test for Team Europe to prove themselves and gain respect. I’m expecting a high degree of excitement and a lot of goals.
If you’re a serious bettor, you should know that there are a few other events that you can bet on. One of them is the worlds vs the world’s game. This one pits the best teams from the North and South against each other. It’s a great way to get a better idea of who would go to the World Series. Another event that you could place a bet on is the European games. These aren’t just for the World Cup, but they also happen every four years and feature some of the best international hockey players in the world.
