Czech Republic

In what has been a hugely unpredictable group to date, the Czechs will still have one game to play against Canada after facing the USA. They are 1-1 to date, having started with an excellent 4-3 win over Russia, but then fell to a surprise 4-3 loss to Germany on Saturday.

Martin Has, Jan Jenik and Libor Zabransky scored the Czech goals against the Germans, while Lukas Dostal made 21 stops.

USA U20 vs Czech Republic U20 IIHF Betting Lines & Prediction

It’s not been easy making IIHF bet predictions for any results in Group B to date, but the USA seem to be gaining some momentum as the tournament progresses, whereas it’s tempting to believe that the Czechs may have peaked in their opening game.

On the Money Line odds, the USA can be backed at -400 (1.25) with Mr Green Sports, with the Czech Republic available at +325 (4.25) with bet365.

The host nation should have enough about them to keep this competitive, so our tip is on the Puck Line, where the Czechs +2.5 are on offer at -114 (1.88) with 888Sport.
