thumbnail Hello,

Canada offers solid value in huge World Cup Qualifier versus Honduras as does the draw offering at Ladbrokes.com

In what is one of the most important matches in the last decade for Canada, it will try to take advantage of a depleted Honduras squad that struggled in its opening qualifier last Friday.

Stephen Hart’s men are coming off a confidence-boosting 1-0 victory over Cuba four days ago in scorching hot conditions, and though they have lost starting goalkeeper Lars Hirschfeld due to a red card from that match, they are expected to deliver at least a point this evening.

The last time these two squads played was in Montreal in 2010, where Canada emerged 2-1 victors. It was the Canadians' first victory against Honduras since 2000.

Starting in net for Les Rouges in goal will be Milan Borjan, while the incredibly speedy Tosaint Ricketts, Dwayne De Rosario, Olivier Occean, and PSV midfielder Atiba Hutchinson will likely lead the attack and will look to set the tone early on with the vital first goal. Canada pays 2.20 for the win.

The draw result is paying out 3.20, which is decent value as well and would be a smart bet to wager on.

Honduras has had Canada’s number over the last decade, having eliminated the Canucks during the 2010 World Cup qualifying stages, but los Catrachos have struggled mightily as of late, having posted a 1-3-1 record so far in 2012. The Central Americans lost 2-0 to Panama at home in their qualifier on Friday and are under big pressure to deliver the win tonight.

The pressure to notch a win will be heavy on the Hondurans and will look to rely on former Houston Dynamo striker Carlo Costly, who has 20 goals in 49 appearances for the national squad.

A Honduras win is paying out 2.75.

The Asian Handicap has Canada at -0.0/-0.5 with odds at 1.78 while Honduras at +0.0/+0.5 is at 2.06.
