San Jose Earthquakes vs Houston Dynamo Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

San Jose Earthquakes are once again back to losing ways on the road, as they suffered a 4-0 defeat against Toronto. Victor Vasquez capitalised on goalkeeper Andrew Tarbell’s error to score the opener in the 26th minute. Jozy Altidore’s brace early in the second half coupled with a Jonathan Osorio goal led to a heavy defeat for San Jose. Houston Dynamo fell to a surprise home defeat, as Colorado Rapids managed a late 1-0 win. Colorado came in with a defensive mentality and did not allow Houston any space in the game. An injury time goal from Dominique Badji led to the first home defeat of the season for Houston. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

ven though San Jose have suffered two 4-0 losses in the last three league matches, manager Chris Leitch will be delighted to get back to the Avaya stadium. San Jose are without a win in the last four games against Houston Dynamo but three of those games have been at the BBVA Compass stadium. Houston have suffered just one defeat in the last five away games. I see value in backing a draw out of this game. Houston Dynamo have scored in five out of the last seven away games, while San Jose have kept just one clean sheet in their last five home games. Houston have also failed to score only once in the last five away games against this opponent. Once again, I see excellent value in going with both teams to score.

Draw – 11/5

Both teams to score – 8/13

San Jose Earthquakes Preview

The incredible highs and lows continue to haunt San Jose, as the team have gone from losing 4-0 to winning 3-0 and back to a 4-0 defeat all in the space of a few weeks. The club sits just outside the play-offs with six matches left in the season. New manager Chris Leitch will be aware about the need to bring consistency to the game. Since his appointment, San Jose are unbeaten at home and have dropped just two points in five games. Chris Wondolowski is San Jose’s top scorer in 2017 with 11 league goals.

San Jose Earthquakes Team News

Darwin Ceren is suspended for the game. Marvell Wynne (heart), Mark Sherrod (meniscus), and Harold Cummings (ankle) are the players definitely ruled out of the game, while Marc Pelosi (knee) and Nick Lima (thigh) are doubtful due to injuries.

Houston Dynamo Preview

A first defeat of the season at the BBVA Compass stadium comes as a surprise for Houston Dynamo, who still remain uncertain about a play-off place. The club are fifth in the table but just two points ahead of San Jose. The return of just one win in the last five league games has been a factor towards Houston Dynamo’s drop down the table. The home form was a crucial factor behind Houston Dynamo and it will be interesting to see how Wilmer Cabrera’s team react after the first defeat. Erick Torres is the top scorer at Houston with 14 goals in the league.

Houston Dynamo Team News

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