The Czech Republic and Switzerland will look to win when they both go head-to-head in Olympic men’s hockey on Friday.
Switzerland fell to ROC in the first match of the tournament with a 0-1 loss. Meanwhile, the Czech Republic lost to Denmark, losing 2-1 in the opening match.
The Czech Republic finished the group stage in second place in the 2018 games, and they added a nasty win over the United States in the quarterfinals. They went on to lose to ROC in the semifinals and then fell to Canada in the bronze medal match. Switzerland failed to reach the quarterfinals of 2018, falling to Germany in the final match.
Let’s take a look at odds via WynnBET for this European match.
The Czech Republic has begun to emerge as a leading country among second-tier teams when it comes to hockey. Canada, USA, Sweden, Russia and Finland are the top 5 countries, but it is very likely that the Czech Republic will be at the top of the next group of teams.
They showed it in 2018 when they finished in 2nd place at the end of the group stage. I’m expecting them to handle Switzerland on Friday, and I’m surprised the odds aren’t long gone.
Switzerland can compete with the lower tier teams, but it will struggle on Friday.
Select: Czech Republic -135
