Germany vs Canada Preview & Picks

Canada are tipped to cover in their World Championship opener.

The defending champions underwhelmed at the Olympics but this is likely to be straightforward.

Germany lost three of the four matchups at the Games – one was a heavy defeat to the Canadians.

  • Canada beat Germany 5-1 at the Olympics
  • Canada are odds-on favourites to win Group A

Germany Form

Germany made it to the semi-finals of this tournament a year ago, eventually losing to runners-up Finland.

They failed to build on that showing at the Winter Olympics though, losing three of their four games.
The Germans were beaten 5-1 by Canada and 3-2 by the United States.

A 3-2 win against China was enough for them to scraped into the play-offs, but they were ‘one-and-done’.

Germany suffered a 4-0 defeat as they missed out on a place in the quarter-finals.

Canada Form

Canada disappointed at the Winter Olympics, crashing out to Sweden in the quarter-finals.

However, the defending world champions are the bookmakers’ favourites for this tournament.

The Canadians overcame a slow start at the 2021 World Championship to scrape through the group stage.

That continued their streak of having made the playoffs at every World Championship tournament to date.

Canada then downed ROC and the United States before beating Finland 3-2 in overtime in the final.


Canada crushed Germany the last time they met and another convincing win is likely here.

Line - Canada -1.5 @ -110
