Belarus looks to kick off its international campaign with a big match against Slovakia. The supposed co-hosts turned into players are a gritty team with many good results over the past decade. However, in recent form they have not looked so great. Belarus is struggling to win many matches in the past year – two, and they are looking for a spark to ignite their offense.

Scoring less than 3 goals in 7 of their past eight, Belarus are on a cold streak internationally. Their defense has also been lacking, conceding 2x their scoring on this streak, which is very worrying for Belarus fans. What better time would it be to fix such a problem, than right now? Belarus realizes what they need to work on, and going into this championship their hopes will be increased by this.

If they want to make this match vs. Slovakia competitive, it all starts with their mindsets. Slovakia is one of the powerhouses in International Hockey. They have been competing at the highest level for years now, and even boast a few players in the NHL league that houses the best of the best.

Their attack and defense are both solid, and provide efforts that any team would be proud of. Especially in the past few years, Slovakia has been able to score an average of 3.2 goals a game, while conceding 2.2. These stats reflect how stout the defense is, while also showing effective scoring displays.

In terms of head to head with Belarus, this team has won three straight versus the red and green. Slovakia knows their edge both mentally and physically in this matchup, and the team will be looking to show its key components on the biggest stage. They will be heading to this opening match with all the confidence in the world, and I don’t blame them one bit.

I think with these two teams’ forms and respective histories, there is only one result to be seen here. Slovakia to win 4-1, is my prediction. Slovakia will pull off another great performance for the fans, and win the first under the belt.

First and foremost, the above IIHF Worlds odds appear based on historical results, not reality, at least as it pertains to top ranked ice hockey nations this spring. In other words, the gold medal odds are accurate to the results of past Worlds, but not to the outcomes of international pond shinny when the big shots don’t have any elite, veteran snipers to call on.

Canada played with 20 NHL “bubble” skaters at the 2018 Olympics, and was eliminated 3-2 by Germany. Few of Russia’s “developmental” rosters have ever contended for gold, and we saw the Czechs skate in mud without NHL workhorses in winter ’18.

USA Hockey has given the “old college try” (literally) for decades on-end with teams laden of NCAA and NHL rookies in the IIHF Worlds. Not only are those lineups dismissed when bling is on the line, but 1 such squad was sent to a relegation round in 2010, and forced to defeat Italy and France to avoid a humiliating berth in a lower division.

Yet, for example, despite icing almost no A-list lineup choices in 2021, the Russians and Canadians are drawing gold medal futures bets at 2.5/1 and 2.75/1 respectively. Sweden, often overwhelmed without quality NHL players to man every position, is about a 5/1 pick. Team USA has a slim shot at a medal, but 9/1 for the gold? Please.

It’s also been well-established that Team Russia isn’t having an easy time getting its best KHL skaters to play, meaning that the Red Machine cannot simply take advantage of the circumstances to waltz to a gold medal. What does that leave us? For supporters of legacy nations outside of Finland and the Czech Republic, it’s ominous news, or at least reason enough to ignore the Worlds.
