Houston Dynamo FC vs St. Louis City SC Prediction, Odds & Best Bets cover


The Houston Dynamo FC (11-10-6, 39 points) will host the St. Louis City SC (15-10-3, 48 points) Saturday night. Houston is fighting to stay in the playoffs while St. Louis City continues to surprise everyone.

St. Louis City leads the Western Conference in just their first year in the league. Houston is currently holding onto the 5th seed by 1-point, with Vancouver right on their tail.

It will be the 2nd time this season the 2 teams meet. Houston lost the first game 3-0 back in the beginning of June to St. Louis City. Houston thought is in much better shape entering this game.

The Dynamos are undefeated in their last 5 games (3-2-0) since competitive play resumed after the Leagues Cup back in late August. They have 7 matches left to hold the line and make the playoffs.

During this 5-game stretch, Houston has outscored its opponents 10-0, which is pretty dang impressive. The whole team is contributing as well, with 10 different players scoring goals.

They just drew against the Galaxy but shut out the 3 opponents previous, 2 being Western Conference teams. The big win came against Real Salt Lake on August 26th where they won 3-0.

Houston's defense has really stepped up. Not only not allowing any goals, but they have been impenetrable to say the least. They’ll look to continue this play tonight against a tough St. Louis City team.

Can St. Louis City SC continue their dominate Inaugural season?

Coming off a 2-2 draw vs the Galaxy, St. Louis City looks to continue its magical run. For an expansion team, they are doing things that have never been done by one.

They currently have 48 points, which leads the Western Conference and ties 2nd in the whole league. St. Louis City currently leads the West by 7-points over the Seattle Sounders and 8-points over Los Angeles FC.

St. Louis City has scored a goal in 23 of the 28 matches they’ve played. Adeniran has scored the opening goal of their last 2 matches.

City SC absolutely dominated the 1st matchup vs the Dynamos, but that was a home game. They are only 4-4-2 on the road vs Western Conference teams, so they don’t have a great track record.

The Dynamos though have turned it around since their first matchup with a record of 6-3-3. Houston is also 9-2-2 at home this season with a +18-goal differential. Let's see if home field is really going to make a difference tonight.

Houston Dynamo FC vs St. Louis City SC Predictions and Picks

Pick: St. Louis City SC +1 (+115)

Home field is so important in soccer, and you can even see by the lines that the sportsbook take it into account. In my opinion though, Houston is going to have to do a lot to get the win and not draw.

Getting a goal cushion at plus money seems almost too good to be true, but we’re going to roll with it. St. Louis City has shown they can contend with the best in the league and can win regardless of where they play.

I’ll be taking the spread and definitely sprinkling the Moneyline because there is a strong chance St. Louis City plays spoiler and ends the Dynamos win streak.

St. Louis City ranks 4th in the league for shots on target, 1st for tackle attempts and 2nd in tackles succeeded. Most importantly, they rank 2nd in the league for goals scored with 2 per game.
