Goals on Both Ends

Houston Dynamo has scored five and conceded five in the last four MLS games, translating to a goal for and against in every game. On the other hand, Sporting Kansas City has scored six and conceded six in the last four games, converting to 1.5 goals for and against in every game. A preview of the last four games since the start of MLS season shows that both teams have scored and conceded goals in all those fixtures. Goals on both ends, therefore, look good on the books.

More than two goals

Given that each team has conceded at least a goal since the start of the season, we see a similar trend continuing in this game. Moreover, the previous four encounters between Houston Dynamo and Sporting Kansas City have had more than two goals. Both teams are unpredictable defensively and betting more than two goals is likely to yield some good returns.

Sporting Kansas City to win or get a point

Sporting Kansas sits above Houston Dynamo is both the MLS and Western Conference tables. The visitors have registered two victories; one on the road and one at home in the last four games. They also have a draw of 1-1 and a 3-1 loss since the start of the season. The hosts have two draws of 1-1, a 2-1 victory and a 2-1 loss since the restart. While only two points separate the two sides after four games, we think Sporting Kansas has a better form in this game, and will easily get a point or victory.

Match Preview: Houston Dynamo Hosts Sporting Kansas in Match Week 4

Houston Dynamo hopes to defeat Sporting Kansas City in the first encounter of the season. But can they do it against a team that is having a great run in the new reason?

Houston Dynamo

Houston Dynamo has six victories against Sporting Kansas City in the previous 16 meetings dating back to June 2016. With the two teams sharing three draws within that duration, the big question is can the hosts make it seven victories against the visitors?  Home advantage could make a big difference on Thursday. However, poor attacking is a concern for tactician Tabare Ramos Ricciard. The manager has a 0.96 winning average having managed 26 games for the hosts, winning five, drawing 10 and losing 11. An equal number of victories (2) against his opponent would, however, play significance going into this game.

Sporting Kansas City

Sporting Kansas City manager, Peter Joseph Vermes hopes for a third victory against his opponent on Thursday. The 54-year old tactician has 426 games under his belt with Sporting Kansas City. In all those games, he has won 190, drawn 98 times and lost 138 games. His winning average with the visitors translates to 1.57 points per match.
