Canada vs USA: Sochi 2014 Women's Ice Hockey Gold Medal Game Odds
Team Canada: Women look to strike Gold yet again
Women's hockey stars, Caroline Ouellette, Jayna Hefford and the incomparable Hayley Wickenheiser, are all looking to add a record setting fourth Gold Medal to their collection as Team Canada faces Team USA today. Joined by an impressive supporting cast, that trio and their teammates are also aiming for a fourth straight Olympic Hockey Championship. After earning a Silver medal at the Nagano 1998 Olympics (USA won Gold), Team Canada struck gold during the Salt Lake City 2002 games over the USA, the 2006 games in Turin over Sweden, and they registered the "hat-trick" against the USA during the 2010 Vancouver games. Team Canada is 4-0 in Sochi (by a combined 14-3 final count) including a preliminary round 3-2 victory over Team USA.
Team USA: Kessel, Decker & Crew look to finally defeat Team Canada
This will be anything but a cakewalk for the Canadian Ladies as Amanda Kessel (sister of Phil from the USA Men's Olympic squad and the NHL Toronto Maple Leafs) Brianna Decker, and Kendall Coyne lead the best squad that Team USA has ever brought to the Olympics. That trio of stars lead all point scorers during the Sochi 2014 games as they have each registered six points over four games. Apart from their stumble versus Canada, the USA women have stomped their opponents as they defeated Finland 3-1 and Switzerland 9-0 in the preliminary round and crushed Sweden 6-1 in the semifinals. Bookmakers are obviously impressed by Kessel & Co. as they have posted Team USA as the favorites in this Gold Medal battle. Online Betting Canada Prediction: Parlay Team Canada (+102 ML) and OVER 4.5 (-140) goals.
