Santos Laguna odds: +230 – 25.0%

Draw odds: +240 – 24.0%

Houston Dynamo odds: -107 – 51.0%

A 0-1 to Houston Dynamo betting suggestion isn’t as ludicrous as you might think. Sure, there’s only a 13.33% chance of that happening, but as you saw from the facts in our Santos Laguna vs Houston Dynamo prediction, there’s a higher possibility that the US side will take home the three points after a thrifty win. Houston Dynamo are the expected winners ahead of Wednesday’s Leagues Cup brawl at -107 (51.0% win probability), while Laguneros hold a 25.0% shot at the three points.

Santos Laguna vs Houston Dynamo Lineups & Team News

Santos Laguna

The fans at Estadio Nuevo Corona didn’t get their money’s worth on the 14th of July. Santos Laguna’s last Liga MX game was a complete letdown, as neither side performed well. We saw only four shots on target after 90 minutes of soccer and we fear Santos Laguna’s lack of attacking punch might be contagious.

Predicted lineup – Lajud (GK), Lopez, Torres, Doria, Campos, Vargas, Cervantes, Vergara, Brunetta, Rodriguez & Preciado

Houston Dynamo

Our Santos Laguna vs Houston Dynamo predictions rely heavily on coach Olsen’s boys’ spotless backline. Sure, the last couple of games don’t exactly back up our words, but any true fan of MLS will remember how well Houston Dynamo performed against 2022 Major League Soccer champions Los Angeles in June.

Predicted lineup – Tarbell (GK), Escobar, Micael, Sviatchenko, Dorsey, Caicedo, Artur, Bassi, Baird, Iturre & Ibrahim

Player to Watch: Amine Bassi

It’s understandable why Amine Bassi is under the spotlight in this Santos Laguna vs Houston Dynamo prediction. Coach Repetto’s boys should be on the lookout for the attacking midfielder’s signature cut-throat passes and goalscoring instincts, as the Houston Dynamo player has been at his lethal best throughout this entire campaign.

With eight goals to his name already, Amine Bassi is proving to be one of the best investments Houston Dynamo’s board has made in recent years.
