Olympics Betting Tips: Who Will Win Brazil vs. Honduras Match? 8/4/12

Soccer Betting Tips for Olympics: Neymar, Brazil Should Blow Away Hondurans: The odds to win the Olympics soccer tournament are clearly slanted in favor of the Brazilians, who are the odds on favorites right now to claim gold medals. They’ll at least ensure themselves of a chance to claim some sort of a medal on Saturday night at St. James Park when they battle it out on the Olympics betting lines with Honduras.

It really isn’t all that much of a surprise that an insanely talented Brazilian team stormed through Group C to make it to the second phase of this tournament with maximum points. There was very little pressure coming against any of the other teams, though we do have to note that three straight goals were scored by the competition between the end of the match against Egypt and the start of the one against Belarus. Honduras knew that it needed some help to get into the quarterfinals, and it got just that in the form of a miserable effort by Spain in the second match day in Group D. At least the Hondurans have to have the confidence that they were able to eliminate the Spaniards, but they only mustered draws against Japan and Morocco in the group stage.

There is a heck of a reason that Brazil is the favorite on the odds to win the Olympics right now. They have had seven different men score for them over the course of the first three matches of this tournament. No other team has scored more than six goals in total. The well balanced effort from top to bottom is something that you just don’t see on any other team in the world at the U-23 stage at this point, and it is going to take a heck of an effort for anyone to dispose of this team. This has been yet another great stage for Neymar to strut his stuff. The youngster is sure to be playing massive club soccer in Europe soon, but for now, he is tearing apart the Olympics and has a pair of goals to show for his work on a very impressive 16 total efforts at net. Keep in mind that one of the scorers hasn’t been Hulk, who is expected to be able to contribute in a big time way to this very inexperienced team.

William Hill Euro 2012 BannerThere hasn’t been a heck of a lot for Honduras to be proud of here in at the 2012 Summer Olympics. The Olympics medal count shows that they have yet to log a single piece of hardware that is coming back home, and the soccer team would love to be able to change that. This is one of the most important matches in the history of Honduras soccer at any level, and it definitely isn’t something to overlook. The problem is that the talent just isn’t there quite yet to compete with a team like this. Yes, Honduras got the job done against Spain, but as we saw, La Roja just never really came to play here in England, while Brazil clearly has. If there is a man that can pull off the upset, Jerry Bengtson is the man. He has three goals from the first round of the tournament, making him one of the three that has at least a trio of strikes thus far at the Olympics.

Brazil vs. Honduras Match Preview & Analysis: Still, we just don’t trust the development of Honduran soccer at this level. Brazil is clearly a refined team, and though this is a squad that features mostly a U-23 bunch, this team could clearly compete with the mass majority of senior squads in the world. Even with a great effort and some magic by Bengston, the truth of the matter is that Honduras only uses that one man at the top of the offense, and that isn’t going to cut it. Eventually, the 10 men back behind the ball for Honduras will prove to crack, and as we have seen thus far in England, the Brazilians have a tendency of scoring goals in big time bunches.
