The Houston Dynamo will be in action in the MLS this weekend as they prepare to host FC Dallas in a Texas derby. There is a long history between teams from Dallas and Houston which includes teams like the Rockets, Mavericks, Cowboys, and Texans. With the emergence of soccer in the USA, the Dynamo and FC Dallas rivalry is now a major talking point in both cities. There will be tons of pride on the line as these teams get ready to play this big game.
As it currently stands, FC Dallas are top of the Western Conference. This has been the team to beat all season and have shown their class in both home and away games. The league leaders had a convincing win over Chicago last weekend and things are looking very good for the franchise. The issue that has concerned FC Dallas fans all season has been the defense and although it has not had a huge impact, the team will look to improve before the playoffs. This game will be important for FC Dallas to win since LAFC are only three points behind them.

On the other side of the coin, the Houston Dynamo will look to win and move up the ladder. Winning this game could move the Dynamo into the top 5 and that is something that will motivate the team greatly. As far as talent is concerned, FC Dallas are more talented than Houston Dynamo but the home team will look to use the home crowd to win this rivalry game.
All in all, this should be a great soccer match. While both teams will believe they can win it, I am going to predict that FC Dallas wins away from home. While the crowd will be massive and behind the Dynamo, FC Dallas are simply too strong to lose this game. We are getting a good enough price to wager on FC Dallas winning this match so that is the wager which I am going to suggest we make. In addition to that, I am also a fan of the both teams to score bet. FC Dallas are great going forward but struggle to keep a clean sheet so this wager is looking very good.
