Mexico vs Honduras Predictions and Picks
They’re undefeated in World Cup qualifying, but nonetheless, worries have emerged for Mexico supporters who expect much more from the North American giants.
After four rounds of matches, Mexico find themselves with two wins and two draws.
It’s not a bad spot to be in, but considering that their last two results were draws, skepticism and anxiousness are now the new norm in recent weeks.
Luckily for Mexico, and for manager Gerardo “Tata” Martino, three points may once again be within reach.
And most importantly, they could be garnered within a short amount of time.
At home at the Estadio Azteca, Mexico will be the heavy favorites against Honduras, who have been far from satisfactory in World Cup qualifying.
Pick Mexico for the win. (-360)

Should Mexico fans be freaking out right now?
That seems to be the case with media and fans throwing themselves into a frenzy about the latest 1-1 draw at home against Canada.
With the expectations of strolling at home against any opponent, especially during World Cup qualifying, a loss or a draw are seen as setbacks.
Nevertheless, even if Mexico did take a beating and were lucky to walk away with a point at home, the good news is that Canada are one of the more difficult tests in World Cup qualifying.
Honduras are far from the same side, and with plenty of reserves available on the sidelines, Martino will have no lack of backup plans that are available to him.
Backups Are At The Ready For Mexico
Ultimately, what will define places in the World Cup or not for Concacaf teams is roster depth.
In a setup that has squads going through three games in short periods of time, rotations will be paramount for managers who will need to cycle through starters.
That benefits the bigger sides, like Mexico.
Looking at most other teams within the region, substitutes like Johan Vasquez, Orbelin Pineda, Luis Romo, Sebastian Cordova or several others would be stars for Concacaf opponents.
These names are now well-rested, and with a demand for a refreshed sense of energy and drive, Mexico have higher odds than Honduras.
And as for Honduras’ momentum…
Honduras Have Been Uninspiring In The Last Few Months
In World Cup qualifying alone, Honduras have dragged their feet with three draws and one loss.
They’ve allowed five goals during that stretch of games, and in response, Honduras only have two goals scored.
They’ve had injury issues and player absences, but looking back further, Honduras are without a win in their last six games in all competitions.
Once thought of to be a potential World Cup qualifying candidate, there are now few bright spots to highlight from manager Fabian Coito and his squad.
Waiting On The Inevitable Game-Changing Performance From Raul Jimenez
It’s only a matter of time and we saw glimpses of it during Mexico’s latest draw.
Up top in his first national team game in nearly a year, Raul Jimenez was highly active with his runs, clever dribbles and key passes going forward.
Following several months out of the Mexico rotation due a serious injury, it was almost astonishing to see how well he was able to transition back to his starting role.
Jimenez wasn’t able to score a goal or provide an assist earlier this week, but there are no doubts that he’s incredibly close to being back to his old self.
The goals will follow, perhaps even, this weekend.
