Italy is one of the worst team in this world championship. Team squad is very avarege, most of the players playing at their national championship, couple of guys are playing at Germany and Switzerland. They have major problems on offense and defense. Defensively they penalty killing percantage is 42,86 (15place), when they have power play opportunity they didn't score yet. Italy struglling to shot on goal, they just shot 32 times (2 games total) and they goaltending percentage 85,71 is 3rd worst across all the teams. On the other hand we have quality Latvia national team, majority of the players are playing at KHL, they also bring some NHL guys like Balcers, Blugers, and goaltender Merzlikins. Class difference in today match is more than obvious. Latvia playing good ice hockey, I don't think Italy stand any chance, OVER it's a good bet here. Also you can look at Latvia Handicap betting -3 asian, also good choice.
