In American Major League Soccer, the race for the coveted playoffs is currently in full swing. In the Eastern as well as in the Western Conference there will be a total of seven teams in the post-season, in which the new US champion will finally be announced in the knockout mode. In the direct duel of two teams that can make good use of every single point in the current phase, Houston Dynamo and the New York Red Bulls face each other in the night from Wednesday to Thursday. According to the odds of the bookmakers, the host from Texas favors the game, although the American offshoot of the “Red Bull Empire” recently presented in a slightly better form and in the ranking so far could collect more meters.
Today’s Betting Prediction Houston Dynamo vs New York Red Bulls
The main reason why bookies see Houston Dynamo ahead is their impressive home strength. The franchise, which belongs in part to the former boxing world champion Oscar de la Hoya, is still unbeaten after nine matches at home and celebrated six wins in this period. New York RB, on the other hand, was able to win two out of the seven games played in a foreign country and has to do without numerous players who are staying with their national teams. Nevertheless, between Houston Dynamo and the New York Red Bulls, we would tend to forego a bet on the game outcome and instead take a closer look at the alternative goal market.
The managers of Houston Dynamo can be quite satisfied with the season so far. Last year, the Texans ranked ninth in the Western Conference and missed out on the playoffs, and the chances of moving into the post-season this year as one of the top seven teams from the West are definitely bigger. The Colombian coach Wilmer Cabrera’s team is currently seventh with 24 points from 16 games and one point ahead of the eight-placed team. However, with Minnesota United (6th), San Jose Earthquakes (5th) and FC Dallas (4th) having three teams in front of Dynamo, all of whom have played at least one more match, the orange-blacks could win climb up to fourth place in the night from Wednesday to Thursday against the New York Red Bulls.
Hope makes the outstanding home record in any case. In front of its own spectators in the BBVA Compass Stadium, which, moreover, only 22,000 people place, Houston is still unbeaten in the course of this season. Six achievements are offset by three division of points. Only Los Angeles FC and Seattle Sounders scored more points at home than the reigning US Open Cup champion. In general, the Texans in their own stadium a very different team than in a foreign country, because the balance is one win and six defeats from seven games away. The latest three MLS foreign matches were all lost. Joe Willis in Dynamo’s goal had to grab at least twice each time. The last success in the highest American football league dates from May 19, and thus lies well over a month in the past. Accordingly, Houston Dynamo and the New York Red Bulls are unlikely to predict the home win, although the Western Conference rank-and-file with the support of their own followers can do it all.
In the meantime, the bets are significantly more interesting in that both teams score. In eight of nine home games such a recommendation would have been successful. In fact, the Texans in just one of 16 MLS games the “white vest”, which again indicates that the match Houston Dynamo vs New York Red Bulls is the tip on the “Both teams to score” a wise option. Personally, it also looks quite good, because with the exception of Eric Bird and Memo Rodriguez Coach Cabrera can draw on the full.
Estimated lineup of Houston Dynamo:
➤ Willis – Beasley, Garcia, Struna, AJ De La Garza – Cabezas, Cerén – Quioto, McNamara, Hairston – Pena
➤ Coach: Cabrera

More than half a year ago, the New York Red Bulls lost in the Conference Finals 2018 against eventual champions Atlanta United. Although the red-whites were the strongest team in the regular season to play the second leg against a home crowd, a 1-0 home win after the bitter 0-3 defeat in the stranger was not enough to the final of the Major League Soccer crown to reach.
The away weakness seems to have been transferred to the new game year in any way, because even in the current season, the charges of coach Chris Armas have, especially in opposing fields difficulties to retrieve the undoubtedly existing capabilities. Of the previous seven games on the opponent’s place, the “Red Bulls” could only decide the two of them (two draws, three defeats). Most recently, there was a 2: 3 defeat after 2: 0 half-time lead at the Philadelphia Union, which once again underpinned that it hooks especially on the defensive. Only once did the New Jersey men hold the zero in the distance. In at least four out of seven away games met both the Red Bulls and the respective opponent. As a result, we face Houston Dynamo Vs. New York Red Bulls predict that once again both teams will move the gaming device over the goal line at least once. The fact that the fifth-place finisher of the Eastern Conference scored the third-highest scores in the league table (30) reinforces our assumption.
However, the only question mark remains behind the personnel situation, because unlike the Texans, the New Yorkers have to do without one or the other national player, who is represented with his country selection in one of the ongoing continental tournaments. Kemar Lawrence (Jamaica), Aaron Long (USA), Michael Murillo (Panama) and Derrick Etienne (Haiti) will all be unavailable. Added to this is the injury-related loss of Florian Valot. The offensive hopes rest thus once again on the shoulders of the Austrian Daniel Royer, who leads the internal scorer list with four goals and five assists confidently.
Expected lineup of New York Red Bulls:
➤ Robles – Charge, Parker, Tarek, Duncan – Davis, Rzatkowski – Royer, Gamarra, Muyl – White
➤ Coach: Armas
Last matches of New York Red Bulls:
⚽️ 29.06.2019 – New York Red Bulls Vs. Chicago Fire 3: 1 (Major League Soccer)

⚽️ 09.06.2019 – Philadelphia Union vs. New York Red Bulls 3: 2 (Major League Soccer)
⚽️ 02.06.2019 – New York Red Bulls Vs. Real Salt Lake 4: 0 (Major League Soccer)
