Match Preview and Betting Tips for Houston Dynamo vs Seattle Sounders
- Tournament: USA – Major League Soccer 2017
- Date: Sunday, 5th March 2017
- Kick off at 01:30 UK/ 02:30 CET
- Venue: BBVA Compass Stadium.
Sounders will be the team to beat this season. The reigning champions have a star-studded squad featuring two of the best attacking midfielders in the league Nicolas Lodeiro and Clint Dempsey.
Seattle will start their journey towards defending the crown this Saturday at BBVA Compass Stadium where they will take on Houston Dynamo.
The hosts failed to reach the playoffs in the last term and we sincerely doubt they are going to make it this time as well.
The manager Wilmer Cabrera can, however, be quite satisfied with the offseason which has seen the team pick up comfortable victories over New York City and Colorado Rapids by two goals each.
The main strategy for Cabrera in the first game of the campaign will be to stop the phenomenal Uruguayan midfielder Nicolas Lodeiro.
The boss Brian Schmetzer, who brought the first MLS silverware to Washinton, has lost both of the pre-season friendly games. He must be worried because of the defense which allowed as many as five goals in defeats to Atlanta United and Columbus Crew.
Houston Dynamo vs Seattle Sounders: Head to head
None of the last seven head to head meetings between the two sides went in more than two goals scored in total.
The 1-1 was the most common of the scorelines happening on three of the last four occasions. Since the sides have played four straight draws, we must see the value in the 11/5 odds offered on such outcome at the kick off of the new season.
Houston Dynamo vs Seattle Sounders: Prediction
The value is definitely in backing the draw at 11/5, while the braver punters can chase the correct score if 1-1 at flying 5/1 odds.
Houston Dynamo vs Seattle Sounders: Bets
- The first bet is the draw at 11/5.
- For the even more adventurous, the 1-1 scoreline is priced up at 5/1.
