The Ice Hockey World Championships claims to be the sport's highest-profile annual international tournament.

Thanks for sharing, sharky99.

It's definitely high profile the King of Denmark is at the game :):btj:

Fishy line going in, Denmark -144 at pinny against Germany the Silver Medal Olympic Team.

Great game 2-2 going to a shootout, unfortunately Power Play goals hurt the total, but it's a long tournament

If anyone bet this can you let me know, I forgot about International hockey betting rules .... NHL grading rules can be different.


  • All markets will be settled with the result at the end of regular time (60 minutes) unless otherwise stated.

They graded my bet as a winner at pinny, lol it went to a shootout.

Re: 2018 World Championships - IIHF.com

Thanks always liked these tournaments to try and get an advantage ..... with that being said I'm doing something I've never done

USA gets McAvoy on Def to help the team, I think they will be pissed at almost losing the last game to Latvia, figure they will score 6-10 goals.


I'll have bigger plays as the tourney continues so I'll just keep playing what I feel like I'm seeing, have a good weekend.

60 mins line pinny

USA -7.5 -106 1 unit

Re: 2018 World Championships - IIHF.com

USA looks bad in my opinion up 4-1 after 1, tempted to buy back but will ride it out since its a small play, haven't seen Gaudreau back since he got wacked on the hand.

Re: 2018 World Championships - IIHF.com

Quarter Finals start tomorrow morning, just have to keep playing what I'm seeing, unless USA and Canada step up their game I don't see one of them in the final, who knows could be wrong but with the flood of talent heading over there during the tournament some teams got significantly better in the last week in my opinion.

60 minute bets/lines unless noted otherwise

Russia +1.5 -161 1 unit
Russia Mline +199 1 unit - 2 way line
Russia-Canada Draw +356 1 unit - 3 way line

Czech Republic +1.5 -157 1 unit
Czech Republic Mline + 208 1 unit - 2 way line
Czech Republic Draw + 376 1 unit - 3 way line

Wow. Nice record, sharky. I love these small tournaments that go under the radar.

I generally don't like IIHF, tho. The timing is terrible. Many top players still in the NHL playoffs, so u see choppy rosters.

Re: 2018 World Championships - IIHF.com

I didn't like much in this current round in the NHL, found it tough, am currently on a night rotation for work so get home and tape or watch games so the timing was good to bet this tournament. Games start at 1015 Eastern time or 715 PST

Re: 2018 World Championships - IIHF.com

Impressive run, sharky. Keep it goin.

I do believe there can be successful niche-handicappers. Take your tournament, for example. Surely your preparation is exceeding the prep that the oddsmaker is putting in.

Re: 2018 World Championships - IIHF.com

Thanks CG, Definitely watched more probably, 90%+ games live or taped so that definitely help during the round robin where teams played 7 games prior to the playoff round. Used to like betting NFL Europe and the XFL many years ago. Arena was a good league to bet also but lost interest with the way the league has been going in recent years and now down to 4 teams. Hopefully the CFL proves to have good opportunities this year, its starting a bit earlier than in past years.

Re: 2018 World Championships - IIHF.com

Heading into the Semis Kane for team USA has arguably been the best player in the entire tournament, give him the extra space on the international ice surface he can do wonders as he has proven so far. I think the US has some Def holes and I look for the Swedes to take advantage of that in this game. I do not think we have seen the Swedes best game, they are deep and talented probably needed some time to gel as they kept adding players as the tournament went along.


Best number i found as of now is 5 Dimes


60 minute bets/lines unless noted otherwise


Sweden -145 3 units

Re: 2018 World Championships - IIHF.com

Thanks Jammer fortunate it played out the way I was thinking, too much talent across the board for Sweden, worked out for a bunch of us but only 2 games left in the tourney. May do and after period play in the Swiss-Canada game later, want to see how the Swiss handles part of Canada's defensive game.

Updated Record after morning game Sweden too much for the US 6-0
