  • Coach Ben Olsen has a positive 2-0-1 record against Austin.
  • Houston Dynamo currently rank 3rd in the Western Conference, with four victories, one draw, and two losses in seven league games.
  • Austin’s backline is underperforming, as the team conceded 13 goals in seven league games, which is surely a plus in favor of our Houston Dynamo vs Austin predictions.

  • HOME: -138 – 57.2%
  • DRAW: +290 – 23.8%
  • AWAY: +370 – 19.0%

*These Houston Dynamo vs Austin odds are subject to change

With the home-field advantage at Shell Energy Stadium behind them, coach Bel Osen’s boys are considered by the bookmakers as the expected winners, with a staggering 57.2% win probability at –138. No surprise that Austin are less likely to win. Sebastian Driussi and his colleagues only seem to have a 19.0% chance of securing much-needed three points this week.

Austin have a slight head-to-head advantage, but we believe that after this week’s game at Shell Energy Stadium, this won’t be the case anymore.

Houston Dynamo team news and form: U.S. Open Cup winners could beat Austin

There is a slight possibility we can see Houston Dynamo on top of the Western Conference table this week. To do that, coach Ben Olsen’s players will simply have to prove our Houston Dynamo vs Austin predictions correct, as they need three points to climb to the top.

Predicted lineup: Clark (GK), Steres, Bartlow, Sviatchenko, Dorsey, Carrasquilla, Artur, Bassi, Aliyu, Blessing & Kowalczyk

Austin team news and form: Driussi and his colleagues not performing

With two victories, three draws, and three losses in eight league games, Austin currently rank 11th. They aren’t performing well and coach Wolff knows that. We believe he will be making slight changes to his starting 11 to adapt to Houston Dynamo’s style.

Predicted lineup: Stuver (GK), Biro, Hines-Ike, Cascante, Gallagher, Ring, Pereira, Wolff, Driussi, Obian & Rubio

Player to watch: Sebastian Driussi

After that sensational Major League Soccer performance in 2022 when Sebastian Driussi scooped the top goalscorer award underneath Philadelphia Union’s Daniel Gazdag, Driussi wasn’t exactly up to par in 2023.

Driussi needs to adapt

There are plenty more quality players in Major League Soccer right now. That’s why we believe that if Driussi wants to retain his status as one of the best around, he’d have to perform better. After all, he only has two goals to his name this season.
