The past three days felt like years to me, how about you? No hockey for the last three days just doesn’t compute with me. Sure we had women’s hockey, but let’s get real. Nothing against females but they just play the game too slow for my liking.
Before we get into our first top rated Olympic hockey pick – in case you missed it – we posted a free pick in the Czech and Sweden match-up here. Now since this is our first top rated Olympic hockey pick, we have decided to post it for free. But they all won’t be free winners so please be sure to purchase a month pass and receive all of our picks daily.
Canada vs Norway Men’s Olympic Hockey Prediction (2/13/14)
If you were to look up the word mismatch in the dictionary, you would most likely see Canada in a blowout win over Norway. Norway has no business even being in the Olympics, let alone the same ice as Team Canada.
It’s unclear who will start in net for Canada but you could put me in net and Canada would still win. What I am trying to say is, I expect a full-out attack from Team Canada in a BIG win over Norway. The puck line is currently at -4.5 and that’s not nearly enough.
Norway is a huge Winter Olympics nation that dominates a number of different events but unfortunately for them they aren’t close to the best country in their geographic section with the likes of Finland and Sweden dominating Scandinavian puck. But I will give them this, they could catch Canada off guard as Canada will use this game to work out the bugs. If there are any.
I could go into the endless talent that Team Canada consists of but we all know who they are and why they are there. I do worry about their goaltending over the long haul as the bigger ice surface will call for more goals and less defense but this is the perfect game for Canada to start the tournament off on. A perfect game to get their mojo flowing.
4.5 goals is too low for Canada as I expect them to put up that many in one period. Back Team Canada and the -4.5 puck line and don’t look back. This is a top rated pick. Enjoy!
Team Canada -4.5 ($500)
