The Houston Dynamo will be in action this weekend as they prepare to play their next game in the MLS. The side from Texas will be at home as they take on Minnesota United. This should be a very close game since the two teams are evenly matched.
Minnesota United had a big win as they beat Toronto FC at home in a high scoring thriller. The win ensured that the side are within touching distance of the top half of the Western Conference. It has been a tough few weeks for Minnesota United as they have not done well but that win would have been huge as it would have completely changed the atmosphere of the camp. The goals showed the strikers are back in form and midfield is looking like it is doing its job once again. The defense will need to improve since Minnesota United are conceding too many goals and that has become a big issue.

Looking at the home team, the Houston Dynamo are also a team that needs to win. The Dynamo got a draw in their last game but have not won a game in a little while. As it currently stands, the Houston Dynamo are mid-table in the Western Conference with the important fact being that they are only 3 points ahead of the Minnesota United team. A loss here will be a very bad result and will see the Dynamo fall in the table so the home side will know that this is a game that they must win. There is still a chance of playoffs for the Houston Dynamo for the team should be very motivated and determined to do well.
All in all, I am going to predict that the Houston Dynamo win this match. While it should be a close contest, I think the home ground advantage will be enough to get the Dynamo all three points. We are getting a good price wagering on the Houston Dynamo so that seems like the best bet for this game. I am also a fan of the over 2.5 goals since both teams have poor defenses.
