For Honduras vs. Costa Rica, Gonzalez is backing Costa Rica to win or draw (-220). When the two teams last played, Costa Rica came out the victor following a 2-2 draw in regulation and subsequent penalty shootout.
The top scorer this year for Honduras has been Romell Quioto, who scored two goals against Panama in a July Gold Cup match, but he's been denied another goal in the four games since. Gonzalez thinks that the lack of scoring will continue for Honduras and Costa Rica will take its second consecutive head-to-head result.
"Los Ticos have the more talented team, and we saw against the U.S. how this Honduras team can just completely fall apart," Gonzalez told SportsLine. "There is pressure on both as yet have recorded a victory in qualifying, but with Keylor Navas in goal, I love Costa Rica's chances of getting something from this game."
