New York City FC vs Houston Dynamo Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

New York City were able to grab a point against Colorado Rapids at the Dick’s Sporting Goods Park. Thomas McNamara came up with an outstanding long-range effort to open the scoring in the 19th minute. New York City dominated the early exchanges, but Colorado’s search for an equaliser paid off in the 88th minute when Dominique Badji levelled the scores. Houston Dynamo’s away woes continued with the team losing 1-0 against San Jose Earthquakes. Danny Hoesen came up with the only goal in the 33rd minute, while Houston came closest in the second half when they struck the post. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Houston have never won against New York City in their history. I do not see this record changing in the upcoming game, as Houston travel to the Yankee stadium with a very poor away record. The club has just one win in 15 away games. Even though New York City suffered a surprise home defeat last time around, the club are likely to have key players like David Villa back in the starting line-up for this match. I would go with a win for New York City FC.

The last two matches at the Yankee stadium have seen New York City score under 1.5 goals. However, their MLS record at home in the 2017 MLS season has been strong with an average of two goals per game. Houston have conceded close to 2 goals per game on the road. Hence, I see amazing value in backing New York City to score more than 1.5 goals.

New York City win – 3/4

New York City to score over 1.5 goals – 4/6

New York City FC saw over 1.5 goals in 10 out of their last 10 games played

New York City FC saw over 1.5 goals in 4 out of their last 4 games played against Houston Dynamo

Houston Dynamo saw over 1.5 goals in 7 out of their last 10 games played

Houston Dynamo saw over 1.5 goals in 4 out of their last 4 games played against New York City FC

New York City FC Preview

New York City’s push to catch Toronto FC now looks like a futile attempt unless the Eastern Conference table leaders drop points in the remaining few matches of the season. New York City are now 11 points behind Toronto after failing to win against Colorado Rapids. The top two places are too close for comfort, as Chicago Fire are only three points behind with five matches left in the season for Patrick Vieira’s team. The task of finishing in the top two is made difficult by a lengthy list of injuries and the prospect of facing three matches on the road.

New York City FC Team News

Ronald Matarrita (toe), Ethan White (calf), Mikey Lopez (foot), Miguel Camargo (hip), Maxime Chanot (hernia), Yangel Herrera (groin), and Alexander Ring (toe) constitute a lengthy injury list for manager Patrick Vieira.

Houston Dynamo Preview

Wilmer Cabrera saw his team slip out of the top six after a poor run of form over the last few weeks. One of the few consolations for the club is that they are level on points with Real Salt Lake, who have been able to overtake them for a place in the top six. Real Salt Lake, however, have played two more games than Houston, who will be at home for three out of the next four league games. Away form has been the problematic area for Cabrera’s team throughout the campaign, and there were no eyebrows raised after the loss against San Jose. Erick Torres is the top scorer for the club with 14 league goals.

Houston Dynamo Team News

George Malki (cruciate ligament) and Charlie Ward (knee) are the players unavailable for Houston Dynamo.
