Team Canada travels to Honduras to play in one the biggest games in Canadian soccer history. With a win or draw, Canada can advance one step closer to qualifying for the 2014 World Cup! Get the breakdown of Canada’s chances, along with the best odds for betting on team Canada!
The oddsmaker has Canada as an underdog at +350 odds to win the game outright, and the odds are +230 for the game to end in a draw. Canada is rightly set as the underdog due to Honduras being a hard place for visiting teams to play in, due to both poor conditions, and rabid fans who have even been known to throw bags of urine onto the field!
On top of all this, Canada will be without it’s top player and goal scorer Dewayne De Rosario due to injury, and striker Oliver Occean who was suspended after being given a harsh red card in Canada’s match versus Cuba. This has forced Canada to call in reinforcements in the form of Toronto native Lucas Cavallini.
Despite the setbacks, the confidence in the locker room is very high and many veterans in the locker room, like 36 year old Ante Jazic, will be giving their all because this could be their last game in a Canadian uniform. Since Canada only needs a draw, they are likely to play defensively, especially since they are missing some offensive weapons. The oddsmaker has set the total for this game at 2 goals even, and you can get +110 betting on the under (2 goals results in a push).
