United States vs Latvia Preview & Picks


The United States are tipped to cover in a winning start.

The USA are one of the leading contenders to go all the way in this year’s tournament.

Last year they comfortably beat Latvia during their run to the semis and a similar win is likely here.

  • USA beat Latvia 4-2 in last year’s tournament
  • USA have won each of the last 3 meetings with Latvia
  • Latvia lost all 4 of their games at the Winter Olympics

United States Form


The United States are looking to go all the way after settling for third place in last year’s tournament.

To do it they will have to improve on an underwhelming display at the Winter Olympics.

The USA cruised through the group stage, winning all three games while out-scoring the opposition 15-4.

They fell at the first hurdle in the knockout stages though, losing 3-2 to Slovakia in the quarter-finals.

Latvia Form


Latvia hosted the World Championship a year ago but failed to make an impact on the home ice.

They won just two of their seven group games as they bowed out before the knockout stage.

Their showing at the 2022 Winter Olympics was hardly promising either, as they lost all three group games to bow out early.

Latvia were outscored 11-5 as they lost to Sweden, Finland and Slovakia.

Verdict


The United States have had the upper-hand in recent meetings and that is unlikely to change here.
