At the risk of appearing a total idiot, I'll say

Canada
USA
China

Hard to bet against Canada, despite present distractions. Of all the skips in Prague, Jim Armstrong has the experience that will best help him put them aside for a week.

I think it could be USA's year. They have a talented shot maker at skip, another year working together, and have been unlucky to miss the podium the past couple of years.

My third choice is a wild card. China have the energy and delivery skill to cause an upset. Success will depend on whether their hitting can keep the games open enough that a possible lack of strategic sensibility doesn't cause them to give games away.
