- Title : USA vs. Slovakia Tip, Forecast & Odds 03.06.2021 - Ice Hockey World Cup
For the first time since the 2013 World Cup in Stockholm and Helsinki, the Slovak national ice hockey team survived the group stage of a World Cup.
In Riga, the "Repre" has played a strong tournament so far, among other things, the Slovaks have already prevailed against the tournament favorites from Russia.
Slovakia will now face the USA in the quarter-finals and, according to betting odds, are the best bookmakers in the underdog role. For a surprise coup for the Southeast Europeans, odds of 1.70 are offered for USA vs. Slovakia, while quotations of up to 4.50 are offered for a tip on the American favorites.
The assessment of the betting providers is by no means surprising, after all, the USA will go into the quarter-finals as group winners of Group B. If you consider how strong the US-Americans presented themselves in the group stage, a semi-final entry for “Team USA” against the underdog is quite obvious.
USA - Statistics & Current Form
For the US national team, the adventure started at the current ice hockey world championship with a loss to the defending champion from Finland. For long stretches the Americans were on par with the Scandinavians, but the bulwark of Finland could only be cracked by a single power play goal.
Because Finland also presented itself far more effectively on the offensive than the USA, there was ultimately a narrow victory for the defending champion. Since then, "Team USA" has won six in six group games. A total of 20 goals have been scored in the last six games, with the Americans' gate ringing only six times.
If the team of national coach Jack Capuano builds on the momentum of the current winning streak, it is obvious that the quarter-finals against Slovakia will also be mastered. In the last seven World Cups, the USA missed the semi-finals of a World Cup only three times. The last time was at the 2019 World Cup, where "Team USA" only took seventh place in the World Cup.
