Such is the pair’s domination, Sweden’s appearance in the final of the 2006 Turin games is the only time both nations haven’t reached the final. On that occasion, Canada won the final, and Team USA took bronze.
2022 in Beijing has been no different, as both sides have again dominated. Team Canada arrives at the final unbeaten, while the USA has lost just once……..to Canada in the preliminary round.

Canada v USA Ice Hockey Gold Medal Match Picks
Right, I’m having a bet on all three markets in this event, starting with the Moneyline.
Team Canada has demolished all opponents en route to the final.
They finished the preliminary round ranked the number 1 team. Winning Group A with four wins from four matches played.
They beat Team USA 4-2 in their head-to-head preliminary match-up, and just destroyed their other group members.
They defeat Switzerland 12-1, Finland 11-1, ROC 6-1, and the USA 4-2.
In their quarter-final, things got better, as they thrashed Sweden 11-0. They did suffer somewhat of a setback in their semi-final, as they only beat Switzerland 10-3.
Imagine, they let in three goals!!
Put simply, the Canadians looks head and shoulders above everybody else, and I have no hesitation in making Team Canada my gold medal pick on the Moneyline.
