Phil Kitromilides believes that the Selecao will ease to victory but he has concerns over the solidity of their defence
The Central Americans finished above Mexico in CONCACAF qualifying for the finals and, while the Selecao should prevail, they are unlikely to have things all their own way.
William Hill price a victory for Luis Felipe Scolari's side at 1/4 (1.25), with Honduras are offered at 9/1 (10.00) and the draw available at 5/1 (6.00).
Naturally, Brazil will almost certainly win - yet they may not do so by keeping a clean sheet. In qualifying, Honduras carried a real attacking threat, and this goal-scoring touch saw them defeat all three of the region's traditional powerhouses - USA, Mexico and Costa Rica.
Brazil will be a different prospect without doubt, but the price of 2/1 (3.00) for both teams to score and Brazil to win looks to offer some decent vale in market without too many stand-out options.
Indeed, if we take a Selecao victory as a given, then the price of 2/1 (3.00) is essentially for Honduras to score and, for an attacking side that has netted in each of its last six matches, that is a very backable option.
