Without the NHL players, this year’s Olympic hockey slate will be missing some star-power, but it certainly won’t be lacking patriotism and energy. At the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook, Russia is favored at +125 to capture the gold, followed by Canada (+225) and Sweden (+400).

The puck drops on Wednesday, February 14 when Russia takes on Slovakia and the US battles Slovenia. Group A is comprised of Czech Republic, Canada, Switzerland and South Korea. Group B is made of Russia, Slovakia, United States and Slovenia. Group C is comprised of Finland, Germany, Sweden and Norway. The gold medal game is scheduled for Saturday, February 24.
