On this decisive duel, Honduras host the United States at the Olimpico Metropolitano in San Pedro Sula.
The battle for the qualifying spots for the next World Cup is really heated in the CONCACAF.
With Mexico and Costa Rica in front and with their qualification almost ensured, the 3rd direct spot and the play-off spot are still up for grabs and being contested by Honduras, United States and Panama.
Currently, Honduras are in 4th place with 8 points. The team is coming off a win over Trinidad & Tobago and they need a good result here to assume this 3rd place.
Playing at home, Honduras won 1, drew 1 and lost another match, scoring 4 goals and conceding 3 so far.

Honduras vs United States – Betting Tip and Prediction:
The United States could already have 1 foot in Russia, but their loss against Costa Rica at home in their last match has complicated things for them.
The Americans are now in 3rd place and are being threatened by the Honduran approach. The United States haven’t won as visitors yet on this CONCACAF qualification stage.
They have tied twice and lost once, scoring 2 goals and conceding 6 in those matches.
We will have a tense game here, since these teams are rivals. But I don’t see any reason for the Hondurans to be such underdogs playing at home.
They are strong at home and the United States haven’t impressed away from home. I don’t see Honduras losing here.
