Chile Favored in World Cup Betting vs. Honduras

November 30, 2010 Football Soccer

Chile is expected to defeat Honduras in World Cup betting on Wednesday in a match that can be seen on ESPN.

Chile plays in a group that includes Spain but they have the ability to advance out of Group H since they are capable of beating Honduras and Switzerland in World Cup odds.

World Cup betting odds list Chile as a one-goal favorite on Wednesday against Honduras with a total of 2.5 under. The three-way line has Chile at -170, Honduras at +480 and the draw at +260. This will be the 8th World Cup appearance for Chile.  This team is coached by Marcelo Bielsa and he has led the team to their first World Cup in 12 years.  He will have his team well prepared and ready to attack from the moment the match begins. Chile’s top scorer in qualifying was Humberto Suazo who had 10 goals in 18 games.  The team also has other talented players such as Matias Fernandez and Alexis Sanchez. Chile is going under the radar with a lot of people but they have some ability and could even give Spain a run for the top spot in Group H.

Honduras is making only their second appearance in the World Cup and it figures to be a short one.   They don’t matchup well with Chile or Spain so their only hope of getting a point appears to be the match with Switzerland.  It seems unlikely they can match the scoring power of Chile or Spain.  For Honduras to have any chance they will need David Suazo to play very well.  The top scorer in qualifying was Carlos Pavon as he had seven goals. Honduras is well coached by Reinaldo Rueda but it does not seem like they have the talent to compete with either Spain or Chile.  Suazo and Pavon are good players and Wilson Palacios is a good midfielder and Georgie Welcome can score the occasional goal but overall, Honduras simply does not have the depth of many other teams in the World Cup.

Chile should not have too much difficulty winning this match in World Cup odds as long as they don’t overlook Honduras.  That shouldn’t be an issue since this is their first match in Group H.
