France must be thanking their lucky stars after landing the easiest World Cup group (with Honduras, Switzerland and Ecuador). But can minnows Honduras cause an upset in the opening match in Porto Alegre? Read on for the latest betting odds and tips.

France had to rely on a play-off win against Ukraine to make it to the Brazil World Cup, but now they are there they have a great chance of making it to the knockout stages… unless they cause themselves as much damage as they did in the last World Cup of course.

Honduras finished four points ahead of Mexico in their qualifying group to make it to Brazil, and as one of the less fancied sides they have nothing to lose and no pressure on their shoulders. As such we fancy they might pick up a couple of points here and there, and backing the draw here could be the way to go at betting odds of 23/5 with Pinnacle (compared to just 1/3 for the France victory with Sportingbet).
