soccer bettingThe United States suffered a tough soccer betting loss in their midweek game against Costa Rica, which was for first place in CONCACAF. The Americans return to home soil on Saturday to take on third-place Honduras, who will make the trip to Chicago’s Soldier Field as the underdog in your internet sports wagering book.

Soccer Betting: tough fight ahead for both USA and Honduras teams

  • Team USA already struggling
  • Honduras riding high on the solid strength of Carlos Costly
  • USA favored for their home-pitch advantage

USA Honduras odds – Saturday, June 4, 8:30 PM ET

The Americans were badly outclassed in a 3-1 loss in Costa Rica on Wednesday, as they could only muster a penalty by Landon Donovan late in injury time. Costa Rica scored 79 seconds into the match, which was the second-fastest goal ever scored against the Americans, and it was all downhill from there. Team USA has never won in Costa Rica, going 0-7-1 in eight games, and things were made worse when Michael Bradley earned a yellow card which will keep him out of the Honduras match.

Carlos Costly netted a pair in Honduras’ 3-1 win over Mexico at home back on April Fools’ Day, with a single coming from Carlos Pavon. Honduras was stout on defense, not allowing a shot on goal until the 56th minute, and only an 82nd-minute penalty from Mexico’s Nery Castillo ruined their clean sheet. That was the second time that Honduras have beaten Mexico in six months, and Costly has been a thorn in the side of the Mexicans, as he scored twice in a 2-1 victory over them in 2007.

Online betting odds should back the United States at home, as they’ve been brilliant in their own country, going 15-0-1 in their last 16 games. But guess who were the last team to beat them? You guessed it...Honduras, who edged the Americans 3-2 in Washington, D.C. Honduras is a very balanced squad, while the Americans have shown they can be beaten at the back. Tim Howard is a very solid keeper, but the defenders are sometimes sloppy in their own end. The team as a whole is very attack-minded, as they lead the group in goals with eight in four games, but they’ve allowed five. Fans at Soldier Field and soccer betting players alike should be in for an exciting match, and the teams themselves will take a point away each.
