The final Group E games of the 2014 World Cup will take place on June 25th, 2014.
Honduras, practically eliminated, will take on Switzerland. Ecuador will play France. In this article, we’ll go over the Honduras vs Switzerland betting tips.
As I said, Honduras are practically eliminated, but actually do have a very straight-forward chance; win, and win by a few goals.
Honduras are sitting on 0 points. If they beat Switzerland, they need to beat them by at least 2 goals. However what is interesting is that might not be enough – Ecuador could still go through on goal difference if they lose by just 1 goal against France.
For Switzerland – it’s also quite complicated. They could win, and still go out! They could end up on 6 points alongside France and Ecuador and go out on goal difference.
So essentially you have two teams who need to score, and score a lot of goals.
Hopefully it should be a great, great match.

Honduras vs Switzerland Betting Tips:
Wow – the bookies aren’t giving Honduras even a fighting chance in this one.
It’s tricky, really. I do think Honduras are probably worth a small value bet at that price. They’re not as bad as 8/1 odds suggest – personally, I’d be looking more at 4/1 for Honduras.
But then it is tricky to make a value bet that will come in 20-25% of the time really. It’s a tough call – I’ll leave that one up to you but at least consider it.
The big one is Over 2.5 goals. Both teams need goals. Yes, Switzerland could draw and that’d be it. But they want to win. And Honduras won’t give up – they’ll be pushing the whole match because why not? It’s the last World Cup game may as well play some free-flowing attacking football.
It’s not a banker that this game goes Over 2.5 but Switzerland have the skills to score and I don’t see them sitting there holding onto a 1-0 lead. Both teams should be pushing here and I think it makes a lot of sense to go over 2.5 goals for this one.
If you’re a fan of value bets, 8/1 on Honduras is a price that you can’t miss. We will stick with Over 2.5 goals in this match at 7/10 odds..
Honduras vs Switzerland Betting Props:
Skill wise, I do think Switzerland are better. We’ve liked them since before the World Cup even started. And even though we recommend a value bet on Honduras – that’s just because it’s a VALUE BET not because we think they’ll win. They will just win more than the odds dictate.
Based on that, we like Switzerland-Switzerland. The Swiss will want to get an early lead and control the game. Evens for that.
Bet Switzerland to be winning at both half time and full time.
