2014 Winter Olympic Hockey Odds: Canada Favored Over USA

Dilip Vishwanat

If you're a betting man (or woman), the smart odds are on Team Canada and Alex Ovechkin.

It's not a huge surprise, but Team USA isn't favored to win the gold medal in hockey. They're not even favored to win their group, which is actually a surprise. But hey, at least odds are even that they're going to medal!

Which isn't good, actually, because you're not making any bank off of that.
