2022 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships Odds

  • Canada is favored with +125 odds to win the World Junior Ice Hockey Championship.
  • The United States (+350) and Russia (+400) are listed as the next top options.

EDMONTON - The World Junior Ice Hockey Championships run through January 16, 2022 and the host country, Canada, currently has the shortest odds to win the title.

Canada Favored To Win 19th Title

The Canadians have dominated this tournament for the last 30+ years, and are in a good position to win once again. The odds available on online sportsbooks favor Canda to extend their record of 18 gold medals up to 19.

World Championship U20 2022 Odds

  • Canada U20 +125
  • USA U20 +350
  • Russia U20 +400

Not that it would’ve been a concern to begin with, but Canada is in the easier of the two groupings as both the United States and Russia are in the other grouping. Not only does Canada have the most gold medals, but they’re tied for the most silver medals of all-time as well, showing just how competitive this team is on a consistent basis.

The Canadians are simply too consistent to not bet on as the well-deserving favorites.

Can The United States Defend Their Title?

The United States are the defending champions of the event but their odds may be inflated due to that simple fact. The consensus is that the USA skaters can compete with the best in the tournament but the goaltending will prove detrimental.

On the other hand, Russia may have the best goaltender in the competition in Yaroslav Askarov. He’s being billed as one of the best goalie prospects in a long time and will surely make a major difference. Goalkeeping is important in all forms of hockey, but especially in tournaments with athletes 20-years-old and under.

Russia may not only have more value but could very well be the better team straight up.
