These odds from Betfred were correct at the time of writing. Check your bet slip before confirming.

Dallas Win

While Dallas haven’t started the 2021 MLS season in the best form, with only 1 win in the first 3 league games; The Toros are still relatively solid at home. Dallas are unbeaten in their last 5 home games in the MLS, with their only loss of the season so far coming away from home. Houston, on the other hand, haven’t won away from home in their last 5 games.

Halftime/ Full Time : Dallas / Dallas

Dallas have scored before the halftime whistle in 3 of their last 5 home games, and have no issues starting games with impetus and drive. Paired with the fact that Houston have only beaten Dallas once in their last 5 games vs each other, the Dynamo are likely to struggle as a result.

Total Goals Over / Under: Under 3.5

While 3 of the last 5 games between the two sides have ended with 3 goals each, none of the last 5 have surpassed that. Both teams aren’t high-scoring either, FC Dallas have scored 1.67 goals a game so far whilst Houston have 1.33 goals per game. Even if there are goals in this game, both Dallas and Houston have started the season slowly and aren’t in top form. Historically, the game also tends to not be a goal fest so I expect a low-scoring affair.

Dallas vs Houston Dynamo Preview and Team News

Dallas  

Starting centre-back Matt Hedges is a doubt for the game with a thigh injury; Hedges played over 1500 minutes last season, and started the first two games of this season. Starting goalkeeper Jimmy Maurer is also out with a shoulder injury. Luchi Gonzalez is the head coach of FC Dallas. A former MLS player himself, Gonzalez was academy director of Dallas’ youth teams for six years before getting the top job in 2018. 

Houston Dynamo

Houston come into this game with a clean bill of health except for one squad member. 2021 Draft pick, centre-back Ethan Barlow will be unavailable due to a concussion suffered recently. Tabaré Ramos has been head coach of the Houston Dynamo since 2019. His win percentage is the lowest of the past 4 Dynamo bosses.
