LA Galaxy odds: -133 – 52.2%

Draw odds: +270 – 23.0%

Houston Dynamo odds: +300 – 24.8%

Over 2.5 Houston Dynamo Goals is a pick priced at +275, which means the likelihood of us seeing three or more goals from coach Ben Olsen’s boys isn’t that high – only 34.25%. LA Galaxy are the bookmakers’ expected winners ahead of Sunday’s game at -133 (52.2% win probability) but we fancy Houston Dynamo’s odds at +300 (24.8%) likelihood. A draw at +270 could also prove a good betting alternative if Houston Dynamo don’t show their true colors.

LA Galaxy vs Houston Dynamo Lineups & Team News

LA Galaxy

The only team doing worse in the Western Conference is coach Fraser’s Rapids. However, LA Galaxy themselves rank 13th, with six victories, seven draws, and 10 matches lost. Time is running out, and if coach Vanney wants to qualify the team for the final stage of this year’s campaign, he’ll have to prove our LA Galaxy vs Houston Dynamo predictions wrong.

Predicted lineup – Bond (GK), Calegari, Zavaleta, Yoshida, Edwards, Cerrillo, Rossell, Boyd, Puig, Costa & Joveljic

Houston Dynamo

With 10 victories, five draws, and 10 losses in their 25 MLS games so far, Houston Dynamo are on the right track to securing a place in the final series this season. The team achieved some memorable victories, such as the two wins against 2022 MLS champions Los Angeles FC.

Predicted lineup – Clark (GK), Smith, Micael, Bartlow, Steres, Caicedo, Herrera, Kowalczyk, Ibrahim, Franco & Baird

Player to Watch: Riqui Puig

Priced at a whopping €12m, Riqui Puig is a gem in coach Vanney’s starting XI. The agile midfielder is by far the best player at his manager’s disposal. The former Barcelona starlet is proving his worth with his new club each passing day.

Currently, Riqui Puig has four goals and four assists in the 2023 Major League Soccer campaign. He’s the 2nd-best creator and finisher, and he’s the key threat to our LA Galaxy vs Houston Dynamo predictions this week.
