USA vs. Honduras CONCACAF Odds, Betting Pick & TV Info

Written by on March 23, 2017

Over the last few Word Cup Qualifying campaigns, one thing that has become abundantly clear in the CONCACAF regions is that the USA are the class of the bunch surpassing even Mexico during that run. The belief was that they would simply care their way through the hexagonal portion of qualifying and book their ticket to next year’s World Cup in Russia.Things have not gone according to the script, though, and the US now find themselves in a precarious position, and with a new manager in charge to try and dig them out of a rather large hole. The third game of the Hex goes on Friday night out on the West Coast, as the USA will go against Honduras in what many people are labeling a must win game for the home team. Not only do they need to pick up the victory, they need to do it in some considerable style, as that hole they are in includes a rather lopsided goal difference, which could play a role in whether or not this team moves on.

Why bet on the USA

Say what you want about the hiring of Bruce Arena as a replacement for thee fired Jurgen Klinsmann, he is a man that comes with a ton of experience at the position. In his time as coach of the LA Galaxy in the MLS, which was very successful, he learned how to manage some very large egos and get the best out of his players. This may well be exactly what is needed with this group. Arena does have some injury concerns ahead of this one, and will be particularly troubled in the full-back position. I imagine he will be going with an attacking formation anyway, which means that a 3-5-2 may not be out of the question. Clint Dempsey will be back after an absence with a heart issue, and the major veterans in this team are all ready to go.

Why bet on Honduras

Honduras are entering this game sitting in 4th place in the Hex after splitting their first two games. The lost in their opener, 1-0 to Panama, but followed that up with a 3-1 win over Trinidad & Tobago. This games looks to be a much tougher proposition for Honduras, as they have had little success versus the USA in recent years, losing 3 and drawing 1 in the last 4 meetings. If there is an advantage for Honduras it is that they are facing a US team that is under an incredible amount of pressure to get the win. There are sure to be some early jitters, and if Honduras can take advantage of that, they could spring the upset.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

The mood in the US camp seems to be much better now that Klinsmann has gone, and I expect some of the veteran players to step up in a big way for this one.
