Reason For Vancouver Whitecaps vs Houston Dynamo Betting Tips
Vancouver Whitecaps lost at home 3-1 to in-form New York City last time out, while Houston Dynamo ended their winless run in midweek when they claimed a 2-0 victory over Minnesota United but both teams remain in the bottom two of the Western Conference.
All of the stats point towards goals being scored in this game by both teams and, despite sitting bottom of the table, we’re backing Vancouver Whitecaps to claim a much needed three points.
Vancouver Whitecaps lead the head to head record between these two clubs by two wins but it’s the performances of the clubs in recent seasons that make us believe there will be goals on Sunday. Both teams scored and over 2.5 goals were produced in the last five meetings between these two clubs and Vancouver Whitecaps have scored two goals against Houston Dynamo in each of their last four encounters. Vancouver Whitecaps have won two of their last four matches against Houston Dynamo and that, coupled with all of the above, suggest a 2-1 win looks likely for the hosts this weekend.
Neither team arrive in good form but Vancouver Whitecaps have picked up more points than their guests of late, with the hosts winning two of their last six matches and Houston Dynamo losing four of their last six matches. Both teams scored and over 2.5 goals were produced in five of Vancouver Whitecaps’ and four of Houston Dynamo’s last six matches, which is another reason why our prediction of a 2-1 final score looks a safe bet.
The away record of the visitors adds even more weight to our prediction of a home win this weekend, as Houston Dynamo have lost their last four away games and three of those match saw both teams score and over 2.5 goals produced. This is bound to be an edgy match between the two bottom clubs in the Western Conference but we’re expecting goals at both ends of the pitch and plenty of talking points.
We’re confident that both teams will score and over 2.5 goals from Sunday’s match and have predicted a final scoreline of 2-1 in favour of the hosts. Vancouver Whitecaps have a good record against their guests having never lost at home to Houston Dynamo over the years. However, the last five encounters between the pair have all seen both teams score so we’re expecting another close and competitive ninety-minute this weekend.
