The British team stormed into the elite of world hockey three years ago and then had no intention of returning to the second strongest division. There is a good chance that they will have to do so after the 2022 World Cup. All their direct rivals showed a surprisingly decent level of play, and although Peter Russell's charges tried to cling to the points, they managed to do it only once, when they lost to Norway 3:4. In the other two games, Great Britain failed the Czech Republic and Sweden, 1:5 and 0:6, respectively, which is why they sit last in Group B.
The USA team had not won a World Cup since 1960, and at the 2022 World Cup, the unsuccessful streak of the Stars and Stripes was very likely to continue. The coaching staff headed by David Quinn invited a very curious squad to the tournament in Finland, where even the promising youngsters were not so numerous. Even this line-up was enough for the Americans to defeat the Latvian national team by 4:1 in the first game, but the Austrians almost suffered an embarrassment. However, they still won in overtime with a score of 3:2, whereas they had lost to the Finnish team the previous day (1:4).
Expert Betting Tips
TThe USA has had a modest showing at the World Cup so far. Still, the game against Great Britain is an excellent opportunity to win convincingly, making up for their last game defeat against Finland and their loss of points against Austria. For the British, the upcoming meetings with the Americans and Finns will be a chance to enjoy playing with high-level players, but it will be a battle for them against the Latvians and Austrians, where they are more likely to put their side in contention for points. As a result, we'd have to bet on the USA to win with a handicap (-4.5) at about 1.94.
We can expect a high level of goalscoring from the upcoming encounter. The only head-to-head meeting between the teams ended in a 6:3 victory for the USA, but three goals by the British is a good indicator. At the 2022 FIFA World Cup, Peter Russell's side scored three goals against Norway. The Americans can achieve a lot of pucks in the upcoming game, so we suggest betting on the total over 6.5 for 1.93.
Looking at the US national team's offensive line, one wonders which of these characters will be responsible for the Stars and Stripes' scoring at the 2022 World Cup. Seth Jones has already scored a goal and three assists in three games at the World Cup, accounting for 50% of his team's goals. We suggest betting on Seth Jones To Score for 2.55.
