Competition: US Open Cup
Market: Houston Dynamo win
Odds: 7/10 @ Bet 365
Looking to carry on what has become a remarkable run at the BBVA Stadium, Houston Dynamo will host Minnesota United on Wednesday with a spot in the quarter-finals of this year’s US Open Cup on the line.
Starting with the hosts, picking up a 3-2 win over USL outfit Austin Bold last weekend, Houston find themselves in the midst of a very eye-catching run. Quickly climbing up the play-off spots in the Western Conference, a huge part of the Dynamo’s recent resurge has come thanks to their continued showings at the BBVA Stadium. Wílmer Cabrera’s side are yet to lose any of their nine matches in Texas this season winning all bar two of those contests. Also picking up a very eye-catching 2-1 win over Eastern title contenders DC United last month, Houston should be confident of booking their spot in the quarter-finals of this year’s US Open Cup.
As for the visitors, picking up a 4-1 win over Sporting KC in the last 32 stage, Head Coach Carl Craig will be desperate for his side to build off of that result. Enduring a three-match losing run prior to their victory at Allianz Field last week, the Loons have continued to struggle with their form outside of Minnesota. Suffering a 1-0 loss away at Colorado in their last appearance on the road, they have failed to win any of their last four matches on their travels and have not registered an away goal in nearly 300 minutes of action. Suffering a 3-0 hammering the last time they made the trip to Texas, we’re backing a similar outcome on Wednesday.
Bet: Houston Dynamo 7/10 to beat Minnesota United in Wednesday’s US Open Cup tie @ Bet 365
