New England vs Houston Dynamo
USA Major League Soccer
Date: 5 March 2023, Sunday
Kick-off at 00:30 UK / 01:30 CET
Venue: Gillette Stadium (Foxborough).

New England Revolution started the season with a 0-1 road success against Charlotte. It was a stellar defensive showing from Bruce Arena’s troops who are aiming to back it up with another strong display seven days later.

The Revolution play host to Houston Dynamo on Saturday evening. They head into the tie as the favorites and we expect them to justify the tag based on everything we have seen last weekend from them.

Arena can be pleased with the new center-back pairing upon the arrival of Dave Romney. His new partner in crime is Henry Kessler who made the difference seven days ago in Charlotte, bagging a late winner on the opening day.

Arena is looking to bring New England back to the playoffs and he has some exciting prospect at both ends of the pitch. Carles Gil, Giacomo Vrioni, Bobby Wood, and Justin Rennicks are all expected to shine this year.

Houston Dynamo are also hoping for a much better campaign this time around after failing to reach the postseason action more than twice in the last decade.

They started with a 2-1 road loss at Cincinnati last Saturday in a match that offered plenty of chances for both outfits.

New England vs Houston Dynamo Head-to-head

  • New England have tradition to back them up in this matchup, especially in the clashes at Gillette Stadium where they won 9, drew 5, and lost just 3 of the last 17 meetings with the Dynamo.
  • Houston, however, came on top in the previous H2H encounter, celebrating a 3-1 victory in September last year.
  • Both teams scored in three of the previous four head to head affairs.

New England vs Houston Dynamo Prediction

We trust New England’s defense much more than Houston’s. The home win is worth backing as the main betting option at the 1.61 odds.

Since the Dynamo left plenty of space at the back on the opening day in Cincinnati, we also favor Carles Gil to score anytime for the hosts at the 2.87 odds.

New England vs Houston Dynamo Betting Tips

  • New England to win @ 1.61 (8/13)
  • Carles Gil to score anytime @ 2.87 (15/8) odd.
