Italy Form


Italy have not won a World Championship matchup since May 2019 after dropping their 2022 opener.

The Italians lost all seven games at last year’s tournament, getting outscored 41-11 during the group stage.

Two of those defeats were heavy ones as they were crushed 11-3 by Kazakhstan before getting blown out 7-1 by Canada.

They started this year’s competition with a 5-2 defeat to Switzerland on Saturday.

Canada Form


Canada got off to a wining start at the World Championship on Friday.

The Canadians disappointed in the Winter Olympics earlier this year, losing in the quarter-finals.

They have made a successful start to the defence of their world title though, easing past Germany 5-3.

Canada led 5-1 after two periods before taking their foot of the gas and allowing the Germans to score a couple more.

Verdict


Canada are off to a strong start and are backed to blow out Italy, just like they did in 2021.

Line – Canada -6.5 @ -115
