The 25-man roster comprising Canada’s chance at Olympic gold in Pyeongchang, South Korea beginning Feb 14 is shot through with enough homegrown talent to get the job done. Team Canada boasts former Toronto Maple Leafs goalie, Ben Scrivens, centre Derek Roy of the Edmonton Oilers and Vancouver Canucks, and former forward Rene Bourque of the Calgary Flames.
Joining them are a strong mix of AHL, NHL, and KHL standouts that give the team a strong likelihood of putting down Russia’s entry now known as OAR – the “Olympic Athletes from Russia” who will carry the Olympic flag after Russia was banned following the 2016 McLaren report on doping control manipulations.
SportsInteraction, the Kahnawake and Jersey regulated single sport and casino betting site currently has Team Canada close to a favorite with OAR odds at +222 and Canada at +243. Number three Sweden lags far back at +403 with the US in 6th at +900. Hosts South Korea, not known for their prowess on the ice, but well known for their hospitality and good nature would make any bettor jubilant with a miracle were the +50,000 team to pull off one of the biggest upsets in history.
Parlay and mixed team betting may become available in certain regions from the BCLC‘s PlayNow and Central Canada‘s PlayOLG. People in the Atlantic provinces, although they currently don’t have a Crown casino to play online, can still bet on Pro-Line through the Atlantic Lottery website. As of today, we have found no Olympic hockey lines available on any of the corporate lottery sites online. So, to get today’s odds you will need to go with the Kahnawake First Nations hosted and owned Sportsbook and casino if you want to play smart at a licensed and regulated online venue.
