Seattle Sounders v Houston Dynamo - MLS Betting Preview and Prediction
After winning their last 2 games, Houston Dynamo hope they can make it 3 in a row against Seattle Sounders, who are waiting for their opponents at CenturyLink Field, where they haven't yet lost a match this season. Seattle Sounders might seem a bit "iffy" due to their recent results, however, they are not as bad as it seems. Looking back at their last 5 fixtures, Seattle won against Toronto FC (3:2), lost to LA FC (4:1) and drew the next 3 fixtures against San Jose (2:2), LA FC (1:1) in a rematch and most recently against Minnesota United (1:1). Despite the fact they are winless in the last 4 fixtures, Seattle Sounders only lost once this season, so we must give them some credit is where credit is due. Additionally, they only lost to LAFC, who are as of now the best performing team in the MLS. We need to address their draws in the last 3, which despite the fact they only brought them 1 point each, have been well-deserved draws. Seattle played well, especially if we consider the fact they had a tough schedule and were weakened due to injuries and suspensions. This, to some degree, won't be the case in the upcoming match against Houston. Huston Dynamo travel to Seattle after winning 6 out of their last 8 games. While it is an impressive record to hold, Dynamo have had it relatively easy, with the majority of their matches being played at home, where they perform well, unlike their away matches, where Houston Dynamo underperform. While we expect them to have a harder time winning in Seattle, Houston Dynamo have proved they do have a potent attack, which produced 11 goals in the last 5 games. Furthermore, Dynamo have yet to play a goalless match this season, which promises an exciting match ahead of us. Seattle Sounders are considered favorites here, which is a fair assessment. They play well, and their home advantage should prove to be enough of an advantage to push them to victory. While we expect Seattle to win this one, we also believe the upcoming match will be highly entertaining to watch. Dynamo, as we have mentioned proved they can score goals. With 11 goals in the last 5 games, we can expect Houston to extend their run into the next match and score at least once. In fact, I would not be surprised if they manage to score two if given a chance. While we talk about goals, Seattle scored at least twice in 2 out of their last 3 home matches. While they can score goals, their defence does leak from time to time, which is a perfect recipe for a high scoring match. Expect an open contest between two teams that possess plenty of attacking strength. Prediction: Over 3.00 goals
