The United States may have impressed world hockey when they pulled off a shootout victory over host nation Russia but it is Canada who are apparently still favorites to claim gold in Sochi.

According to odds from Bovada, Sidney Crosby and teammates are slight favorites for the tournament which has now reached the playoff stage.

You can get a price of 7/4 on Canada adding to their 2010 medal collection and 11/4 on the United States continuing their strong run of form.

The hosts are the next favorites according to the bookmaker at 16/5 with Sweden at 5/1.

Norway, Latvia, Austria and Slovenia are the outside chances for gold at the tournament with a huge price of 500/1, but be warned those teams all carry losing records in the competition so far.

Canada's Sidney Crosby is the joint favorite for the MVP at the tournament. Both he and the United State's Phil Kessel are priced at 11/2. USA goalie, Jonathan Quick, who impressed against Russia in the shootout is an intriguing 10/1.
