Womens Hockey Final Predictions – Canada vs USA
Not surprisingly both the Canadian and American women’s hockey teams easily won their semi-final games against Finland and Sweden by scores of 5-0 and 9-1. The top two women’s national teams in the world will now play in their only competitive game of the Winter Olympic Games, that being the gold medal finals against one another.
Canada are the defending Olympic gold medal champions, but that victory came 4 years ago and it wasn’t even against the USA, who were shockingly defeated in the semi-finals that year by Sweden. This time around, it won’t be that easy. USA has made the finals and they are ready to continue you their run of dominance in women’s international hockey. The USA have won the past 2 world championships, which should probably make them the favourites in this game.
Being a Canadian I’m going to be cheering for Canada, but in my gut I feel like the USA have the better team and will come out on top after the final buzzer. On top of this, Canada will go into the game favoured by all the online bookies, which will make betting on the USA that much more tempting.
My Prediction: USA 3 – Canada 2
