Mexico vs Honduras latest odds
Having run out 3-2 winners over this opposition in the last competitive encounter back in 2017 in a World Cup qualifier, Honduras are available at 8/1 (9.00) with bet365 to cause an upset by coming out on top in Arizona.
After starting the tournament with a disappointing 0-0 draw with Trinidad and Tobago, Gerardo Martino’s Mexico eased to successive victories over Guatemala and El Salvador to finish top of Group A.
