How To Bet On The World Juniors in Canada

The World Junior Championships are always massively popular in Canada and this years tournament may be even more watched than normal with no NHL games to compete with.  This year the tournament will get underway on Christmas Day and Team Canada is favoured to repeat as gold medalists after winning last years tournament in the Czech Republic..  That said, we’ve only won gold three times out of the past eleven years, so it’s far from a sure thing.

The 2021 tournament takes place in Edmonton in a bubble like environment without fans.  The tournament always carries a lot of interest in Canada over the holidays, with a ton of TSN coverage at a time when most Canadians are home on Christmas vacation with time to get invested in the tourney.  I’ve received quite a bit of interest from Canadians interesting in wagering on the World Junior games and the tournament winner, so I decided to add this article outlining exactly how to get your bets in on the IIHF World Junior Championships this year.

Here’s a quick look at the outright winner odds from heading into the tournament:

I do strongly suggest taking full advantage of the 100% up to $200 first deposit bonus offer from SIA.  It’s rare that you will receive reload bonuses from Sports Interaction and this initial bonus is very easy to clear and will be a nice boost to your bankroll.

Step 3. Bet

It’s time to bet.  To find the odds for the World Junior games at SIA click the ‘Hockey’ drop down menu and then select ‘IIHF World Championship’.  This will bring up all of the games for that day at the World Juniors.  Here’s an example of how the odds will look using the Russia vs USA Christmas day game.  These odds are the over/under and 1×2 (regulation time) odds for the game. There will also likely be spread betting for each game, and money line betting for the competitive match-ups.

If you’re having trouble understanding what the various bets mean then you should check out our hockey betting page which breaks down all of the main bets you can make on a hockey game.
