Hello everyone, 
IIHF World Championship starts tomorrow. 
Feel free to post your plays and/or thoughts.

Latvia vs Denmark. Latvia to win in reg. @3.1

Great value. New Ice hockey president for team Latvia, new head coach - Bob Hartley. Seems like everyone is happy with the situation and the motivation should not be a problem. Although team Latvia is missing few key players, so are Denmark - if I'm right, seven of Denmark's NHL players won't help them this year. Seems like Denmark have weak goalies, but Latvia's goalie Merzlikins looks great.
In Euro hockey challenge tournament team Latvia played better and better with every game... 
Also world championship 2018 will be hosted by Denmark so they cant drop out from the elite division, I'm sure players know that soooo they won't  be as motivated as Latvians.

So far i like Germany at +1 +119 tomorrow.  Opening game at home, they beat the USA at last years tournament.  I dont see the USA winning in regulation tomorrow by more than 1 goal.  Push is worst case imo.  If your adventurous take Germany on the ML

I'm not taking Germany ML, I watched Germanys game last Sunday and I didn't like what I saw. But I'm not on USA either, you can never know with them, few years back I lost a lot of money on them - they  had two good games versus Russia and Canada and then lost to Belarus. Lol.

I'm taking Canada to win in reg. vs Czech rep. @1.55
Leaning to Sweden ML vs Russia @1.95

Canada won 4:1 but fourth goal was empty net goal and if you watch the replay you can clearly see that 3rd goal was scored after an offside...Anyways, Czechs looked surprisingly good. If they will stop to make stupid positional defensive mistakes they can get far in this tournament. I liked Czech republic's short and accurate passes, they are playing very similar hockey to KHL's Magnitogorsk Mettalurg :)With that being said I want to make a bet that Czech rep will win in a reg tomorrow but the line is only @1.3. :\ -1,5 line is @1.55. Belarus almost got a tie vs Finland today soooo looks like I'm not touching this gameELDubarino great call on GermanyI'm adding:Latvia to win more then 1,5 games in group tournament @1.7

Wish I was adventurous lol 

I agree the Czechs looked good but Canada was playing in neutral for a good portion of the game as well.  I have a thread in the "Other" forum for my picks and analysis for anyone who is interested.

This is such a fun tournament to watch, follow, and to attend.  I'll be in Copenhagen next year for this.  Looking forward it.

What other forum? 


I dont like to bet UNDERS (and I probably won't) but I think that there will be no high scoring games tonight...Maybe Czechs vs Belarus will go OVER but others should stay UNDER

Ouh, its in the ''Other'' forum 



My balance so far: (+1,45)
Latvia vs Denmark. Latvia to win in reg. @3.1 
Canada to win in reg. vs Czech rep. @1.55

Parlay:
Switzerland - Slovenia. UNDER 5
Norway - France. UNDER 5,5
@2.71

Live bet: Czech  rep. Vs Canada. TIE @ 6.2 - 0,2 units 


My friend perfectly capped Latvia:Denmark game - He said that Latvia will start slow but if they won't be behind after the first period they will win, thats exactly what happened. Denmark dominated in the first period but Latvia got better and better and won 3:0. 
At the end of the game organizers wanted to play the short version of Latvia's anthem but fans wanted to hear it all so they sang it themselves without the music

I also saw the first period of Slovakia:Italy. 1:0 right now...
Its obviously that Slovakia is saving the energy for tomorrows game but they are still much better then Italy... 
Its an early game for Italy tomorrow, versus Russia...Sounds like a 18years+ game. If the line will open at -4,5 I think I will take the Russia(-4,5).

Hi guys! 

thoughts about this day games ? 

What you think about Latvia ML @2.75 
and SUI Ml @1.70 I think that Sui will bounce back and be more motivated after horible game versus Slovenia, they started really fresh and good but they were horible at the end of the game.

To Timijss
Latvia ML @2.75. If you can still get it at 2.75 take it, great value. As you can see I took it yesterday @2.65, now my bookies offer it only @2.10  Day before yesterday the line that Latvia will win Slovakia in reg. was @3.85 lol
Timij you sure these are ML lines? My bookies offer 2.75 for Latvia and 1.75 for SUI if they win in regulation time

Anyways, Latvia should win today, team Latvia is looking good, meantime Slovakia almost lost to Italy...
Slovakia's yesterdays game started 4 hours later then Latvia's game + Slovakia played in OT. Seems like Slovakia have only two good lines and when they yesterday were behind 1:2 to Italy, both of the first two lines had huge ice time...What I want to say is that they should be tired, Im on Latvia today. 
Considering that Slovakia might be tired and in yesterdays game Latvia looked better with every period I will maybe take Latvia to win 3rd period @2.95...

Swiss blew a four goal lead yesterday so they should bounce back today but 1.75 to win in reg. vs Norway isnt enough for me... GL

I didn't see too much I liked for todays games.  I took Slovenia +5.5 and got lucky with the back door cover on that one.  I liked Russia but not enough pull the trigger.

Both USA and Denmark do not want to go down 0 - 2.  USA is the better team but will they win by 3 goals?  I think this game could be tight and U5.5 might be a play at +101.  I'm not playing it though, just going to enjoy.

@ELDubarino

Thanks for sharing thoughts on this.

I enjoy those IIHF rules, I suspect you could take any random NHL game and apply those rules and you'd have people sitting in the sin-bin all game playing constant PP's og 4on4 + 5-10 sent to the dressing room early.

Haven't checked the rules, but fun was (and probably not the correct wording): Kicked a broken stick ... Did not "untug" shirt from pants after warning .. and there's like no-nonsense .. 2 guys shove a bit after the whistle and both get sent to the box

nice on russia. i had them as well as canada, usa and cze (which means i had a horseshoe up my behind on that last one)

the ice seems terrible. they OFTEN trip around in pre-game skate-arounds and on breakaway attempts. something we arent used to ever seeing in the nhl.

anyways i love this tourny. its always been very profitable for me and i enjoy seeing our nhl guys do well.

gl in your picks. ill be back to check on who u are with or any insight!
