Colorado Rapids vs Houston Dynamo Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Colorado Rapids suffered a narrow 1-0 loss against Atlanta United in the last league game. Josef Martinez scored the only goal of the game in the 67th minute to send Colorado to a second consecutive loss. In the midweek U.S. Open Cup action, Colorado suffered a loss against FC Dallas. Houston Dynamo’s impressive run of wins at home ended with a 1-1 draw with FC Dallas. Erick Torres’ opening goal after just 19 minutes was canceled out by Maximiliano Urruti’s goal just before the hour mark. In the midweek U.S. Open Cup action, Houston Dynamo suffered a home defeat against Sporting Kansas City.

Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

A home game puts the onus on Colorado Rapids, who are on a poor run of form after suffering three consecutive losses. Houston Dynamo’s away form has substantially improved with the team suffering just one defeat in the last four across all competitions. Houston, though, have not managed a win at the Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in the last six visits, while Colorado have managed four wins in this run. I would back a win for Colorado Rapids.

Colorado Rapids have kept just two clean sheets at home in the last eight league games. While Houston’s biggest problem has been scoring on the road, the club has come up with some decent performances of late. Houston have scored five goals in the last two away games in all competitions. I would back both teams to score.

Colorado Rapids win – 21/20

Colorado Rapids Preview

Colorado Rapids have suffered three consecutive losses in all competitions. The team will be focused on recovering from a disappointing loss against LA Galaxy in the last league game at the Dick’s Sporting Goods Park. The defeat ended a sequence of five consecutive wins in all competitions. Colorado have suffered the most due to the disastrous away form. Pablo Mastroeni’s team are the only MLS team in 2017 not to have taken any point on the road. Colorado have lost all of the seven games on the road while scoring just one goal. Dominique Badji is the top scorer at the club with four league goals.

Colorado Rapids Team News

Bobby Burling (foot) is the only player on the sidelines for Colorado Rapids.

Houston Dynamo Preview

Houston Dynamo are once again on the road for much of July, and this spells bad news for manager Wilmer Cabrera. Houston have been close to impeccable at home, but their form on the road has been quite opposite. The club has managed only two points from the eight away games this season. However, there have been signs of a turnaround in fortunes with the club managing two draws in the last three. Houston’s biggest strength of the season has been their attacking strength with the team scoring 30 goals from the 17 league games. Houston’s top scorer this season is Erick Torres with 11 league goals.

Houston Dynamo Team News

Houston Dynamo will be without George Malki (cruciate ligament) and Eric Alexander (ligament) due to injuries.
