One of the favorites in the tournament got off to a good start Friday night. Team Canada scored four goals on Belarus to move to 1-0. The Canadian team saw Jordan Eberle score two goals, and Jeff Skinner record a goal and an assist. Team Canada goaltender James Reimer had a fantastic game between the pipes allowing just a single goal in the game.
France is coming off a very frustrating opening game loss. The French team went to overtime scoreless; only to see the Swiss score to win the game in sudden death. Team France saw goaltender Cristobal Huet play fairly well; holding the Swiss scoreless through three periods of play. Team France was out shot on the day 35-29, so offense will be the key for them in game two against Canada.
Canada is a massive favorite in this game. If they do not win this game, there will be some major frustration setting in for Team Canada. The bet that most experts are picking is Canada -4. This means the Canadian team will have to win by four goals or more to cover the spread. We are predicting France keep this game closer, and cover the spread. We are betting France +4 in this game.
