The wait is finally over, and the new Major League Soccer season is starting with plenty of interesting matches this Saturday. One of them is taking place in Texas where Houston Dynamo welcome LA Galaxy. None of these two sides is among top five favorites to win the title, but there are plenty of playoff hopes involved.
Both teams have finished the pre-season period with a lot of inconsistency, so it will be fun to see who is about to get a better start. Odds for both home and away victory are very close at the moment, 2.50 and 2.70.

Houston Dynamo vs LA Galaxy Prediction
Houston’s fans might actually get to see how it is to play in the playoffs this year. The squad won the 10th place on the West last season. Poor defending was the main reason for poor standings, as they conceded 59 goals in 34 games.
The team played four pre-season games so far. They were successful in clashes against Rio Grande Valley 5-0 FT and Real Salt Lake 4-0 FT. The only loss came against Columbus Crew recently.
LA Galaxy participated in the playoffs last season, even eliminated Minnesota in the opening round. Team that got them knocked out was city rival Los Angeles FC.
We are expecting to see an open match with a lot of goals. Over 2.5 FT & BTTS is surely going to be one of the most popular bets this weekend.
