The MLS continues this weekend as the Houston Dynamo will be in action at home. The team from Texas will host the visiting Sporting Kansas City at the BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston. Both teams are evenly matched and within 6 points of each other in the standings which should ensure that we get a really close and hard fought game of soccer.
The Houston Dynamo has been one of the most exciting teams in the tournament as they have provided tons of goals and chances in all their fixtures. This team is very talented going forward having scored 39 goals this season. That being said, the defense has been an issue since the Dynamo have conceded 32 goals. This has led the team to be placed in the bottom half of the Western Conference standings. This will be a great chance for the Houston Dynamo to move up the standings and they will hope that they can get the job done at home.
On the other hand, Sporting Kansas City will look to get an away win and move up the ladder. It has been hard for teams to win away from home in the MLS which is mainly due to the large distances traveled. This should not be a massive issue since Houston and Kansas are not too far apart. A win could move Sporting Kansas City into the top 4 but it will be hard since they need to beat a Houston side that will be determined to win at home.
All in all, I am going to predict this game to end in a draw. Kansas City are the better side but Houston will be at home and determined to get a result. The draw seems like a very likely result. We are getting a good price to wager on the draw so that is my suggested bet for this fixture.
