Vancouver 2010 Olympic Women’s Hockey Gold Medal Odds

Canada had a stellar day on the podium and Canada Hockey Place as they secured four more medals (all in women’s events), and the men’s hockey team put on a clinic to send the Russians home early.

The big story today for the Canadian public is a massive showdown that we all saw coming- Canada vs. the United States in the Women’s Hockey gold medal game.

The match comes at a bit of an awkward time as the IOC President Jacques Rogge declared that Women’s Hockey needs to become more competitive if it is going to remain in the Winter Olympics for much longer. It makes some sense, as there are only two competitive teams, but the question is- how are other teams supposed to get better if they have nowhere to play? Think about it.

You’ll find Hayley Wickenheiser’s Canadian side listed as the odds-on favourites to win this match within regular time. The Americans are trading at around 3.25 while the draw (sending us to overtime) pays out at 4.5. In terms of outright winner (including OT and penalties) Canada are a very small 1.5 while the USA pay out at 2.5. Clearly this one looks to be in Canada’s favour.

The over/under on total goals scored is currently at 5.5 with prices of 1.85 going in each direction - the over/under for each team is set at 2.5. Canada are favoured for the over with a price of 1.53 while their under trades at 2.37. The USA is favoured for the under at 1.61 with their over price at 2.2.

Canadian fans who think their ladies are going to run away with the match here are listed at 2.3 to win the match with a (-1.5) handicap. The USA (+1.5) are trading at 1.55.

The shortest-priced correct score margin is 3-2 to Canada at 13.0, but with 4-2 Canada listed at 15.0, you may want to take a gamble on the girls adding an empty netter. Canada to win 2-1 pays 17.0, 3-1 rewards at 15.0 while a comprehensive 4-1 win pays out at 19.0. If you think Canada will blow the Americans out of the water, try them winning 7-1 at a price of 101.0.
