Ice Hockey World Cup – Russia vs Slovenia

0

In the second game for both squads as part of the preliminary rounds, Team Russia will battle Team Slovenia. This game will take place on Sunday May 1st, 2011 at 16:15 in Bratislavia. This is the ninth game on the schedule for the 2011 World Championships. All games are played in Slovakia.

Russia is coming off a disappointing loss in game 1. Germany downed the Russians 2-0 to send them to 0-1 on the tournament. It was the first win for Germany over Russia in 32 games in the tournament. The Russian goaltender Yevgeni Nabokov was unable to get into a groove from the get-go. The Germans scored a goal just 4:00 into the affair.

Slovenia is also coming into the game after a loss. The Slovenian team lost to Slovakia in front of a tough crowd. One of the highlights for Team Slovenia was goaltender Robert Kritsian recording 42 saves. The problem is, he allowed 45 shots; in the 3-1 loss. Ales Kranjc scored the lone goal for Team Slovenia.

Russia will win this game big. Russia is favored and getting horrible betting odds of -600 to win the game. We like the Russia -3 line that pays out -210. Sure, that does not pay out great, but the best value. Russia will win this game 5-1, so we are betting Russia -3, with the -210 betting line.
