Under 2.5 Goals

Our top Houston Dynamo vs New York City prediction this week is in favor of a lackluster game at Shell Energy Stadium. The fans will certainly not get their money’s worth out of this match as three of the five official matches between the two sides ended with two or fewer goals. In all fairness, the last two official showdowns were interesting but what are the chances we’ll see a third back-to-back goal-filled game between two sides with subpar offensive lines?

Draw

You’ll read more about it in the odds section of our Houston Dynamo vs New York City below, but the bookies are sure this game will end with the two managers sharing the spoils. At least that’s what the odds suggest.

Furthermore, the most common outcome of this rivalry is the 1-1 draw, and seeing as there’s not much that separates these two teams in the 2023 season as well, we feel quite comfortable with our prognosis on this game. Sure, the last two games didn’t end with ties but that’s all the more reason for us to consider this outcome for Sunday’s game.

Houston Dynamo odds: +160 – 36.5%

Draw odds: +245 – 27.5%

New York City odds: +167 – 36.0%

Houston Dynamo barely have a 0.5% lead over New York City when it comes to who has a better chance of winning. A draw at +245 (27.5%) is the likeliest outcome on Sunday between these two and we advise against blindly relying on any of the two teams to win.

Houston Dynamo vs New York City Lineups & Team News

Houston Dynamo

Houston Dynamo’s only win this season was against the in-form Austin. Coach Ben Olsen’s boys beat Austin 2-0 at home and the performance was one to savor. We’re sure that with the help of our Houston Dynamo vs New York City predictions you’ll realize that despite being a poor visiting team, Ben Olsen’s side is performing well at home and a draw against New York City isn’t too far-fetched.

Predicted lineup – Clark (GK), Schmitt, Hadebe, Bartlow, Dorsey, Carrasquilla, Herrera, Artur, Baird, Franco & Bassi

New York City

With two victories, one draw, and only one loss in the 2023 MLS campaign thus far, New York City are among the better Eastern Conference sides this season. And while coach Nick Cushing’s side lacks attacking punch with only five goals scored, it’s the defensive line that’s the chief perpetrator for New York City’s good form. It’ll take one hell of a performance from Houston to get anywhere near Barraza’s penalty box this week.

Predicted lineup – Barraza (GK), Cufre, Martins, Chanot, Gray, Parks, Sands, Pellegrini, Rodriguez, Pereira & Magno

Player to Watch: Hector Herrera

New York City aren’t the only ones lacking attacking punch. Houston Dynamo barely scored three since the start of the season and it’s largely due to Hector Herrera’s tireless efforts to be everywhere on the pitch. Seeing as he’s only a center midfielder, it’s quite impressive to see him being the top Houston Dynamo scorer this season but he also provided a teammate with an assist which makes him the best creator as well.
