France v Honduras: Three ways to share in Les Bleus’ success
France are odds-on to win Group E and if that price is to be justified a win over lowly Honduras is a must. Dider Deschamps’ side have come in for support at 22/1 to win the whole competition after warming-up with an 8-0 win over Jamaica and we have pinpointed three of the best bets as they begin their tilt.
France to win to nil @ 17/20
France are 4/11 to win the match but no-one will be getting rich at those odds and the better option is to back the favourites to get the job done without conceding.
This selection would have produced a return in all six of France’s last victories and so if you think Hugo Lloris’ men will win then this is the naturally enhanced price you have been looking for.
Karim Benzema to score anytime @ 21/20
The Real Madrid star is practically guaranteed to play the full 90 minutes, unless the game has already been wrapped up, in which case the 26-year-old will have certainly already notched.
Benzema scored twice in that aforementioned 8-0 victory and has found the net in five of France’s last eight games.
Second half to produce more goals @ 21/20
As seen with Brazil in their first game it isn’t always wise to back the favourites to break out of the blocks quickly in their first game of the tournament and the statistics strongly suggest the majority of action will arrive in the second period here.
In the last three of France’s games the majority of goals have been scored in the latter 45 and further confidence can be found in the matches featuring the minnows over the past in the past eight months.
Only two of Honduras’ last seven games have featured more goals in the first-half.
