Houston Dynamo couldn’t hold on to their opening win in the league during their second attempt this season in their schedule. They will return home after a 2-1 loss on the road against Portland Timbers last time out in the campaign. The home team did not qualify for the playoffs last season after finishing 25th in the overall MLS table.
Los Angeles has been unbeaten in their opening two matches and had a good start to their new edition of MLS in the schedule. The away team will come in after reaching until the first round of playoffs last season in the campaign. They were at the 12th position on the overall table and will visit on the back of a 1-1 draw at home with Seattle Sounders in the previous encounter.

Houston Dynamo vs Los Angeles FC Prediction
All the previous h2h meetings between these sides since 2018 across all major competitions have seen the same trend of BTTS and high-scoring affairs in each. So, we can count on the teams to carry that trend forward in the upcoming clash. Thus, the tip for over 2.5 goals & BTTS will probably be the best bet for the goals department to yield decent returns.
Besides, their individual current form in the league also suggests that they are both off to a good start this season. However, LAFC has a slight edge over the host as the latter will play on the back of a defeat in their MLS schedule. As such, the double chance favoring Los Angeles FC will probably be the best bet for the punters in the encounter.
