Sweden

The Swedish national team made a golden double at the 2017 and 2018 World Cups, after which the results went downhill. At the last four consecutive world championships, they have never even managed to reach the semi-finals, so now they intend to break the streak of failures. Prior to the start of the tournament, they took part in the Czech stage of the Euro Hockey Tour: first, the Swedes beat Switzerland and the Czech Republic – 2:1 and 2:0, respectively, and then suffered a 3:4 shootout loss to Finland.

USA

Team USA is a team that is the favourite to win every World Cup, but the last time the Stars and Stripes won the gold medal was in 1960. After that, they won bronze medals seven times, but nothing more. It is important to note that more and more often they called up promising youngsters from local universities to the national team. And at the 2024 World Cup, the Americans decided to change themselves, so they invited a whole host of star hockey players: Luke Hughes, Seth Jones, Caufield, John Gaudreau, Dylan Larkin, Brady Tkachuk, Brock Nelson and others. Before the start of the 2024 World Cup, they played only one test match, in which they beat Slovakia 6:2.

Expert Betting Tips

Sweden and the USA have brought their strongest squads to the 2024 World Cup in recent years, and that’s why we can expect a most intriguing and colourful spectacle already in the tournament debut. The favourites are the Yellow-Blues, who had more friendlies before the start of the World Cup, and therefore had time to play and get used to the requirements of the coaching staff, while the Stars and Stripes had only one friendly. At the same time, the European teams approach the games of the group stage more responsibly than the North Americans, who consider this stage of the competition only as a training before the main battles.

We have already noted that Sweden and the USA have called up a number of star hockey players for the 2024 World Cup, who even in the NHL play in leading roles and have great statistics, and therefore in the Czech Republic they should show their best qualities and please us with spectacular hockey. In previous years, the Yellow-Blues and Stars and Stripes have played fun and productive, having scored 50 goals against each other in seven previous head-to-head meetings at the World Championships (7.14 per game on average) – a very high figure.
