Why Bet on Team Canada?

Team Canada is one of the top scoring teams in all of the Gold Cup thus far. Dejan Jakovic was the first to score, along with two other Scott Arfield, and then Alponso Davies scored the final two goals of the game to slam the door on French Guiana.

Then, when Canada played their second game against Costa Rica, in the 26th minute, Davies scored his third goal of the Gold Cup, which leads the way. 16 minutes later, Canada allowed a goal to tie the game. The Canadians have used Milan Borjan as their goaltender in both the first two games.

Honduras are underdogs in the soccer odds against Canada.

Why Bet on Honduras?

It’s difficult to bet on Honduras, as they play without a single goal. Luis Lopez will have to keep the team in the game as the goaltender. Surprisingly, they were not dominated in time of possession against French Guiana, as they had the ball 50% of the time. In the loss to Costa Rica, their 5-3- 2 format actually had the ball more.

Midfielder Oscar Boniek Garcia must be better for Honduras to have any chance in this game. He has to be one of the offensive players that attacks, with a chance to score. Honduras has been playing organized team soccer for over 100 yards, and their best finish in the Gold Cup was back in 1991, when they were runner up.

Both teams have a lot on the line, but Canada knows they are superior. Look for them to grab a goal early in the game, and then sit on the ball with great ball control.

Canada wins this game, and moves to the next round. The Canadian team will have a chance against the rest of the big dogs in the Gold Cup, but likely fall short. But, as they finish up group play, they will grab their second win. Bet Canada -140 over Honduras in this game on Friday as part of the Gold Cup.
