World Men’s Curling Championship 2022: International Curling Event Results, Standings, Schedule and TV Channel

0

The world’s top men’s curling teams are gearing up for nine days of competition in Sin City.

The 2022 LGT World Men’s Curling Championship is set to begin on Saturday in Las Vegas. The 13 best curling teams in the world will compete for the title.

Canada will be represented by Brad Gushue’s team, which also includes Mark Nichols, Brett Gallant and Geoff Walker. The team earned a trip to Las Vegas by winning the 2022 Tim Hortons Brier, beating Kevin Koe and Team Alberta in the final.

Gushue’s team was reduced to three members at the end of the Brier after Nichols tested positive for COVID. The four of them are now in Vegas to try to win Canada’s first world title since 2017.

Niklas Edin and Sweden are the three-time defending champions of this tournament, aiming for the quadruple round this season.

Who is the favorite to win the 2022 World Men’s Curling Championship?

Despite winning three tournaments in a row, Sweden is not the favorite to win the World Men’s Curling Championship.

Instead, it is Canada that gets the slight edge from the betmakers to win. Gushue’s side enter as +120 favorites while Edin’s side are +150, according to Sports Interaction.

That’s a long way behind those two, with Norway coming in with the third highest odds at +800. According to Sports Interaction, it looks like it will be a two-horse race in 2022.

Here are the odds for the winner of the championship.

Canada +120
Sweden +150
Norway +800
Italy +1100
Scotland +1200
Switzerland +1200

Korea +6600

2022 World Men’s Curling Championship standings

Thirteen teams make up the 2022 World Men’s Curling Championship field, which is returning to its usual format after including 14 teams in the 2021 tournament.

In response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the World Curling Federation withdrew all Russian Curling Federation teams from competing at the World Championships. Their place was taken by Finland.

Each team will play against each of the other participants, resulting in 12 matches in the preliminary round. At the end of the round robin stage, the top six teams will advance to the playoffs.

The top two seeds receive a bye to the semi-finals, with teams 3-6 advancing to qualifying matches. The winners of these two matches qualify for the semi-finals and the winner of the two semi-finals advances to the match for the gold medal. The losers of the semi-finals will play for the bronze medal.
