The Storyline

This is a darkhorse for the best match of the group stages as both teams love to bomb forward, and they probably won’t abandon the styles that got them to South Africa. Chile beat Israel, Northern Ireland and Zambia by a combined score of 7-0, but Honduras is a much better team than all three of those squads combined. This is only the second time Honduras has made it to the World Cup, but they’re winless in their last five, including three losses and a pair of draws.

Who Has The Edge On Offense: Chile Honduras Betting

Chile scored 32 goals in qualification, but they may have suffered a huge blow as Humberto Suazo hurt his hamstring in the Israel win. Suazo was their leading scorer, but if he can’t go, that piles pressure on Alexis Sanchez, while Esteban Paredes may step in for Suazo. Matias Fernandez may have more license to press up from the midfield.

Honduras also notched 32 goals in their qualification campaign, but they have their own injury concern as Carlo Costly’s broken foot will keep him out of the World Cup. But they still have the experienced duo of Carlos Pavon, a very clinical striker, and captain Amado Guevara, a wily playmaking midfielder. David Suazo will probably step into the spot left vacated by the injured Costly, who was second to Pavon in goals during qualification. Also, keep an eye on Wilson Palacios in midfield as he can also move up.

Edge: Honduras

Who Has The Edge In Defense: Chile Honduras Betting

Chile has been tinkering with some different formations in their friendlies, and it appears that the only certainty at the back is keeper Claudio Bravo. Waldo Ponce and Gonzalo Jara should find their way into the lineup for Chile, who gave up 22 goals en route to South Africa. But the performances they put up against their last three opponents should be encouraging.

Honduras allowed 18 goals, and they’ve gone through all three of their keepers during this poor run of form, which leads us to believe that manager Reinaldo Rueda has no idea who is going to start this match. Noel Valladares has the most experience, but gave up two goals in four minutes against Belarus. Ricardo Canales kept a clean sheet, but it was against Azerbaijan. Donis Escober gave up three against Romania. Maynor Figueroa should be a constant in the middle of the back four, but it doesn’t matter until they sort out their keeper situation.

Edge: Chile

Notable Injuries – Chile Honduras Betting

Suazo (hamstring) was named to the team, but no one knows for sure when he’s going to be able to get on the pitch for Chile.

Honduras’ Suazo (leg) should be alright for this game, but they’re still waiting on the status of Palacios (shin), who was hurt against Romania.

Edge: Draw

Totals – Chile Honduras Betting

Both teams love to attack, but their defenses aren‘t the best, which leads us to believe that this could be a wild match between these two.

Edge: Over 2.5

Chile Honduras Betting Prediction & Outlook

Chile is a -175 sports betting favorite here, while Honduras comes in at +500, and a draw is listed at +270. These countries have met five times, with Chile winning three times along with a pair of losses, and the most recent was a 2-0 win for Honduras in January 2009. There’ll be a lot of attacking power on the pitch in this match, but the difference will be Chile’s ability to tighten up on defense, while Honduras has too many questions in goal to pull off a sports betting upset of Chile.

Bet World Cup: Chile -175
