World Cup Betting tips have probably all skirted around Honduras. But, with some political unrest in Honduras, in reaching the World Cup finals in a tense finish, the Honduran national side have overcome some adversities in making their second World Cup. It was all down to the last day for Honduras in the CONCACAF qualification zone, and they needed to beat El Salvador and hope that the USA could avoid defeat against Costa Rica. It was a late equaliser in a 2-2 draw from the USA, which meant that Honduras, who did beat El Salvador, were on their way to South Africa 2010. The victory instilled something of a wave of optimism across the country, as shown throughout history in the country, there is a fine, if not indistinguishable line between the importance of football and politics.The victory united people.

The World Cup 2010 draw for Honduras was not that kind to them, and they start in Group H as clear outsiders in World Cup Odds. European Champions and tournament favourites Spain head the group, and Honduras will face tough opposition in the crafty Swiss, and strong South American side Chile. Their hopes of getting out of the Group and into the second round will be based on passion and belief, even in punters won’t be looking at them too much in the betting. Their most famous export at the moment is William Palacios, who plies his trade with Tottenham Hotspur. Honduras showed through qualification, that they can control matches, showing maturity when needed, and that could prove to be valuable experience, one way or another, at the 2010 FIFA World Cup. In their only previous showing at Spain ‘82, Honduras picked up two points from two drawn matches and one defeat, with one of those points coming against hosts Spain. While they impressed there, this time, the enterprising side will be hoping for more.

Just like England, Honduras are in Austria, training ahead at altitude in preparation for their World Cup Fixtures. This will be their base for a couple of weeks after coming from Germany, while they fine tune their build-up. Honduras will also undertake three International friendly matches so that coach Reinaldo Rueda can start plotting the downfall of his group rivals. Honduras start their warm up matches with a game against Belarus, following by Azerbaijan and then Romania. In terms of World Cup betting tips, Honduras are in an incredibly tough group against Spain, Switzerland and Chile. They may be able to scrap for points though, and that is where it will be worth following them either in live in-play betting at your online bookmaker, or simply concentrating on their individual sub market matches as opposed at looking for any outright bets.
