Reason For Houston Dynamo vs Minnesota United Betting Tips
Houston Dynamo’s miserable run of form continued last time out when they were beaten 1-0 away at Sporting KC, while after defeating LAFC 2-0 in their last MLS game, Minnesota United kept themselves busy during the international break with a friendly against Pachuca which ended 2-2.
All of the stats suggest that Minnesota will come away from Texas with at least a point to their name, and probably all three, and we’ve backed the visitors with a double chance bet.
Minnesota United are unbeaten in their last three meetings with Houston Dynamo, picking up two wins and a draw, and have won three of the duos’ last six head to heads. Both teams scored in just one of the pairs’ last five encounters, which is one of the reasons why we have decided to back a final scoreline of 1-0 in favour of Minnesota United.
The form and performances of both teams in recent weeks simply add even more weight to our tip, as Houston Dynamo haven’t won any of their last nine matches and Minnesota United have only lost two of their last six matches. Thursday’s hosts have actually lost five of their last six matches, while Minnesota United have won two and drawn one of their last four MLS games.
Both teams last competitive fixtures also suggest that a narrow win could be on the cards for the visitors on Thursday, as Houston Dynamo failed to score against Sporting KC, going down 1-0, while Minnesota United kept a clean sheet in their game against LAFC, which also happened to be away from home and end in victory for United.
We’re confident that a double chance bet on Minnesota United will payout on Thursday and have predicted a final scoreline of 1-0. The only reason we haven’t backed an outright win for Minnesota United this weekend is that the hosts drew their last home game and Minnesota United lost two of their last three on the road. The visitors have outperformed their hosts this season and have fourteen more points on the board and head into the game as the clear form favourites, so should be able to claim at least a point from Thursday’s clash.
