Moneyline/Puckline Pick: Canada (ML/-10.5)
After a monstrous output from the Canadians against the Germans in their last matchup, the fire is once again lit underneath the tournament favourites as the home crowd exploded after every highlight reel goal. With noticeable improvements in nearly every facet of the game, the Canadians look back on track and should have another lopsided victory on their hands facing a developing Austrian program.
Austria has been blown out in both games played so far this tournament with losses to the Czech Republic and Sweden. Unlikely to find the win column against the Canadians, Austria will look to gain small victories from within this unfavourable tilt.
With the projected number one pick in the 2023 NHL Entry Draft, Connor Bedard dazzled fans across the country with his record-tying seven-point performance against Germany. With no signs of slowing down and potentially in play to chase after Peter Forsbergs longstanding World Junior record of 31 points in the tournament, look for Bedard and the boys to light up the scoreboard once again in this matchup.
Against Germany the Canadians took a much more team-friendly approach, moving the puck well from tape to tape, snapping quick shots on net with high-percentage looks. If the Canadians remain focused and continue to improve their team chemistry and share the puck well, they will have a great chance at not only winning the game but covering the huge 10.5-goal puckline against Austria.
Back the Canadians to keep the good times rolling, winning the game and covering the massive puckline spread set by oddsmakers.
Over/Under Pick: Over 11.5 Goals
With the Canadians set to win by at least 11 goals, look for the Over to hit along the way during tonight’s contest. The Canadians will have a great shot at reaching the Over single-handily against Austria, finding the back of the net with ease, and beating netminders in a plethora of ways over the course of the evening.
The Austrians are yet to score their first goal of the World Junior tournament and will have little chance at lighting the lamp against an inspired Canadian crew.
Look for goals galore from the Canadians in this Group Stage meeting, bet the Over on the goal total as Canada takes one step closer to reclaiming World Junior gold.
