The Austrian national team is the leading contender for relegation from the elite division, according to the results of the World Cup 2022. They should have been dropped out a year earlier, but all national teams remained in the strongest league. Then the Eagles lost in all four games with a total score of 1:29. There would be no chance of staying in the elite with such an outcome. Now the Austrians do not shine as, before the start of the competition, the Swedes blew them out 0:7 in a friendly fixture, and in the first official match, the Finns thrashed 1:7 Marco Pewal's wards, Suomi do not usually like to press opponents.
As expected, the Canadian national team is the main favourite of the championship, primarily when it is held in their country. This does not mean that they will lift the trophy over their heads, which was proved last year when the Maple leafs reached the finals but lost to the USA — 0:2. Before the start of the tournament, Dave Cameron's players had a victorious warm-up match with Russia 6:4. In the first official game against the Czech Republic, they experienced troubles, losing during the first period — 1:3, but in the end, they still won - 6:3.
Expert Betting Tips
The juniors of Austria and Canada are on different levels. If the Austrians are outsiders, the Canadians are the leading contenders for the title. In the first match, Dave Cameron's wards suddenly stalled and won the Eagles the last five games at the World Championship with a total score of 2:36. We recommend betting on the victory of the Canadian national team with a handicap (-9).
For the entire last World Cup, the Austrian national team barely shot only once. At the current tournament, they scored a goal in the first match and managed to hit the gates of the Finnish national team, which is famous for its defence. Now, the Eagles will fight against the Canadians, who conceded three times the Czech goals in 13 minutes, indicating their defence problems. At the same time, the Maple Leaves should score a lot, so the best option is a total over 10.5.
