Houston Dynamo (WLLWD)
Houston Dynamo finally got their first win of the new campaign after a horrible start. They lost their first 2 matches, 2-1 against Cincinnati and 3-0 against New England Revolution and then won their last match 2-0 against Austin FC on home soil. They now have 1 win and 2 losses in 3 matches and in their last 5 matches, and they have 2 wins, 2 losses and 1 draw in all competitions. Against Austin, Houston registered more shots on target (7) but had lesser percentage possession (48%) and took 7 corner kicks. Both goals came late in the second half, as Amine Bassi converted from the spot in the 71st minute and Hector Herrera doubled their lead in the 86th minute. That result places Houston Dynamo in 8th spot in the Western Conference, with 3 points in 3 games.

Expert Betting Tips
Both teams are still in the phase of building confidence at the moment after enduring a rough start. I think this game can go either way as neither of these teams can boast of a formidable status just yet. But we can back each team to atleast get a goal in this match.
