Who is the Favorites on Ice Hockey WM 2023?

The upcoming Ice Hockey World Championship 2023 in Finland and Latvia is generating a lot of excitement and anticipation among fans. The big question on everyone’s mind is who will be the new Ice Hockey World Champion and take over from Finland, who won the tournament last year.

According to bookmaker predictions, there is no clear favourite for the Ice Hockey World Championship 2023. However, Finland and Canada are both expected to be strong contenders, having won numerous major titles in recent years. Finland, in particular, is expected to have a home advantage as they will be playing in Tampere, and with the support of their fans, they will be even stronger. The Finnish team also boasts some NHL stars such as Kaapo Kakko, Olli Määttä, and Mikko Rantanen.


Canada, on the other hand, may not have the big names but are still considered a formidable opponent. The team is known for their strong defensive play and will undoubtedly bring their A-game to the tournament. One player to watch out for is Adam Fantilli, who is the favourite to be drafted second by the Anaheim Ducks in the upcoming NHL draft.

When it comes to ice hockey betting odds other teams expected to do well include Sweden, who have a tradition of playing good ice hockey, and the Czech Republic, who have seen an upswing in their game in recent years. The United States and Switzerland also have decent odds and are considered to be dark horses in the competition.
