Houston Dynamo odds: -133 – 56.6%

Draw odds: +295 – 22.0%

Vancouver Whitecaps odds: +350 – 21.4%

With a probability of 55.75%, Under 2.5 Goals seems like the best way to approach this MLS game. Houston Dynamo are considered the expected winners, with a massive 56.6% win probability ahead of Thursday’s game. Meanwhile, the Canucks barely have a 21.4% shot at the three points. However, we believe that the two teams will share the spoils, meaning a draw at +295 is the safest route.

Houston Dynamo vs Vancouver Whitecaps Lineups & Team News

Houston Dynamo

Not plenty of experts gave coach Ben Olsen’s boys a chance against top-of-the-table St. Louis City last week, but after 90 minutes of soccer, the result on the scoreboard at Shell Energy Stadium showed 1-1. The two sides shared the spoils but Olsen’s players showed why our Houston Dynamo vs Vancouver Whitecaps predictions favor the home side.

Predicted lineup – Clark (GK), Dorsey, Sviatchenko, Michael, Escobar, Herrera, Artur, Carrasquilla, Bassi, Iturre & Baird

Vancouver Whitecaps

Tristan Blackmon and Brian White gave Vancouver Whitecaps a crucial 1-2 win over Toronto on the 17th of September. The match at BMO Field was controlled by the Canucks, who had 57.0% possession, but it’s the result that matters in soccer, and Vancouver Whitecaps made the most of the few good goalscoring opportunities they had.

Predicted lineup – Takaoka (GK), Blackmon, Veselinovic, Laborda, Berhalter, Ahmed, Schopf, Raposo, Laryea, Gauld & White

Player to Watch: Steve Clark

Goalkeeper-in-chief Steve Clark is a key reason behind Houston Dynamo’s success recently. Coach Ben Olsen’s boys have been robust at the back but it was thanks to Steve Clark’s sensational goalkeeping that the club conceded only 32 goals this season. Steve Clark will surely be among the starters on the 21st of September, which means our Houston Dynamo vs Vancouver Whitecaps are in safe hands. Clark recorded three clean sheets in the last four games. Surely, he’ll want to have another.
