According to oddsmakers from Bovada.lv, Canada is the favorite to claim gold, as it has odds of 2/1 to win. Other short odds to win are Russia (9/4), Sweden (9/2) and the United States (11/2).

Canada has been a dominant participant in hockey in Olympic history. It has claimed the gold eight different times, most of any country. It won gold in 2010 and 2002.

Russia has not won a medal in men’s hockey the last two Olympics, but back when the Soviet Union existed, it won gold seven times. Russia will be playing in its home country, which is why the odds are strong.

Sweden didn’t medal in 2010, but won gold in 2006, just the second gold it has ever won in ice hockey. Sweden has placed fifth in three of the last four Olympics.

The United States won silver in the 2010 Olympics and have claimed silver in two of the last three Olympics games. The U.S. has only won gold twice and hasn’t claimed gold since 1980.
