It’s a battle at the bottom of the table in the CONCACAF World Cup qualifiers as Jamaica is currently in the 7th position while Honduras is at the very bottom.
Predictions and Betting Lines for the Jamaica vs Honduras Clash
The two teams have the exact same results in the last five games – four losses and a draw but it’s Jamaica who has the upper hand in this rivalry.
Under 2.5 Goals
Honduras’ attack is the worst in the final stage of the CONCACAF World Cup qualifiers – only six goals in 13 games. Jamaica isn’t any better with only 10 goals in 13 games. Without West Ham’s star Michail Antonio in the attack, Jamaica’s creativity gets even worse. In the away game against Canada in the last round, Jamaica had only one shot on target.
Jamaica to Win
Despite the negativity in the last game, Jamaica is the stronger of the two sides. Honduras has been this group’s punching bag and Jamaica’s coach would like to bring some smiles to the fans. In the last game that was played on the 14th of October, we saw a 2:0 Jamaica victory that could’ve easily been more convincing.
There are no injuries or suspensions for this game. Jamaica’s star in the attack Michail Antonio got left out of the Jamaican squad for this game.
Michail Antonio has been the key player for the team but will be unavailable for this clash. Andre Grey is the last Jamaican player to score a goal in these qualifiers. He did so in the 1:1 draw against El Salvador a few days ago. Damion Lowe must be careful as he is the 2nd most booked player in these qualifiers and he gives free-kick opportunities to his opponents way too easily.
Kevin Jose Lopez Maldonado scored the only goal for Honduras in the last five games. If someone is to provide creativity for the team it’s him. Meanwhile, Luis Lopez and the defenders in front of him – Marcelo Pereira and Franklin Flores must take responsibility for the poor defensive performances recently as Honduras conceded a total of nine goals in five games.

Nothing But a Consolation Victory
A victory in this home game for Jamaica could bring the smiles back to the fans and coach Paul Haul will want exactly that from his boys. Jamaica did win the away game against Honduras and things should be easier at home. Honduras lost four of the last five away games so expectations for a Honduras victory in this game are very low.
