Market: Minnesota United win
Odds: 8/11 @ 888sport
Looking to make a return to winning ways in the early hours of Sunday morning, Minnesota will welcome Houston Dynamo to Allianz Field this weekend.
Starting with the hosts, throwing away the lead earlier in the week and watching Vancouver snatch a last-gasp equalizer in a thrilling 2-2 draw, there is no doubt that Minnesota will be glad to make a return to home soil. Now playing out back-to-back draws on the road, Adrian Heath’s side have continued to shine with their performances at Allianz Field. Sat firmly in pole position to secure another Final Series spot this season, The Loons were last seen in Saint Paul landing a deserved 2-1 victory against the Portland Timbers. Smelling what should be a real chance to make a welcomed return to winning ways in the early hours of Sunday, Minnesota have picked up a very impressive 16 points from just their last six MLS contests on home soil, a run that stems all the way back to the start of May.
As for the visitors, heavily outplayed on the road earlier in the week and putting in another display riddled with defensive issues, Houston find themselves in the midst of a real worrying spell. Knowing that they’re in an uphill battle if they’re to shock many and clinch a Final Series spot in the Western Conference, boss Tab Ramos saw his side get hit with a deserved 3-2 defeat against Austin last time out. Now enduring a run of form that has seen them fail to win any of their last 10 straight MLS contests, a run that stems back to May 23rd, The Dynamos know they will face another tough task on the road this weekend. Remarkably yet to record a single victory on the road since opening the 2021 campaign, we’re backing a home victory here.
