IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship Betting Tips

Canada are the marginal bookies favourites to win the IIHF World Championship 2019 and can almost always be relied upon to reach the latter stages of the competition.

Sweden go into the IIHF World Championship 2019 looking for a third consecutive title win, so they are clearly a team that has to be considered among the favourites for the gold medal again.

Likewise the Russians will be expected to go well and Finland certainly can’t be written off either. The Czech Republic should have a strong roster and benefit from playing on their own doorstep in Slovakia but all things considered our money will be going on Canada to bring home the gold.
