Concacaf Gold Cup 2021 odds, picks, predictions: Soccer expert reveals best bets for Honduras vs. Qatar
Teams looking to secure the top spot in Group D meet when Honduras takes on Qatar in Concacaf Gold Cup 2021 action on Tuesday. Honduras has won its first two group stage matches, stopping Grenada 4-0 and defeating Panama 3-2. Qatar tied Panama 3-3 before downing Grenada 4-0.
