Honduras vs Jamaica

Brandt Sutton locked in his best bet for Wednesday’s Jamaica vs. Honduras World Cup 2022 qualifier.

The last time Honduras won a match in Jamaica was more than 20 years ago at the 2000 Concacaf Gold Cup. Honduras advanced to the knockout stage of that tournament, but will finish as the bottom team in 2022 World Cup qualifying regardless of Wednesday’s outcome against the Reggae Boyz. Jamaica is second-to-last in the table and coming off of a 4-0 loss to Canada on Sunday. You can see what happens next when you stream all the action on Paramount+.

Kickoff from Independence Park in Kingston, Jamaica, is set for 9:05 p.m. ET. Caesars Sportsbook lists Jamaica as the +106 favorite (risk $100 to win $106) in the latest Honduras vs. Jamaica odds, while Honduras is the +280 underdog. A draw is priced at +200, and the over-under for total goals scored is 1.5. Wednesday’s match will be streamed live on Paramount+ with their must-have Premium plan.

Concacaf World Cup qualifying picks for Honduras vs. Jamaica
Before you tune in to Wednesday’s World Cup qualifiers, you need to see the Concacaf World Cup qualifiers picks from soccer insider Brandt Sutton. Sutton, a former collegiate soccer player, has been SportsLine’s top soccer editor for nearly five years. He has followed soccer closely for much longer and factors in managerial tactics, projected lineups and past performances to make the most-informed decisions possible, keeping his finger on the pulse of the game all over the globe.

Sutton has also been on a roll with his best bets, going 12-5 in his last 17 picks overall and returning nearly $500 for $100 bettors who have followed his soccer picks.

For Jamaica vs. Honduras, Sutton is backing Jamaica to win on the money line at +102 odds. With both teams out of the World Cup 2022 picture, Wednesday’s match has the potential for each side to throw caution to the wind. Although neither team has looked consistently dangerous in its attack, the desire to finish qualifying with a win should be a heavy motivator. Jamaica has scored four goals in its last five matches, but Honduras has scored just once during that span.

In the only match the Hondurans scored more than once during the final round of qualifying, it lost 3-2 to Panama last November. The leading goal-scorer, Bryan Moya, only has two goals in 10 matches played and Angel Tejada hasn’t moved the needle during his recent action in the last two games. Without any meaningful threat from the Honduran offense, Jamaica may only need one goal to close out qualifying with a home victory.

Things like that help drive the team as they want to ensure not to let players who haven’t been there this window down. Missing Brenden Aaronson, Matt Turner, Dest, and McKennie, even without them being on the pitch, they’re still with the team just from a bit further away which was also something Gio Reyna spoke about when he was out with an injury of his own for most of qualifying.

But it didn’t stop at one call as McKennie made sure to check in before the Panama match.

“We’re very connected, this goes deeper than football.”, said Adams, “We’ve created friendships and relationships with guys that translate completely onto the field. So we really miss those guys and they’re important pieces to our team. But again, it’s good to have more guys that are able to come in and play pivotal roles in our team.”

As this young team plays together and gains more shared experiences, hopefully the comradery will only continue. It’s true that this team is as talented as they’ve ever been, but it’s not just the talent that’s leading towards success. Berhalter has turned this team into a cohesive unit, and he’s done it with help from a U.S. soccer system, alongside MLS, that’s better than ever at finding talent and funneling into a national team program before the bright lights start shining. When the U.S. missed the World Cup it was during an era that took one of the nations greatest strengths, diversity of talent and turned it into a weakness on the field. The current generation of players are showing that, with the right soccer infrastructure in place, diversity translates into a talented, cohesive unit on the field. While the pains of 2017 still linger, this is a team that can wash those memories away and begin to put the United States on the map as a true soccer power.
