Houston looks to make it three games unbeaten when it hosts Columbus Wednesday at 8pm EDT. Consider the draw, which offers good value.
After losing four of their first seven games in MLS this season, the Houston Dynamo rebounded with a 1-1 draw against Portland and an emphatic 4-1 road win over Chivas USA this past weekend.
The Dynamo are listed right now at evens (2.00) to beat the Crew, who haven't won in their last five league matches.
They will need to clean up at the back, however, as they have dropped 14 goals from their opening 9 matches -- tied for second worst in the league.
A draw pick can be had at 3.40 over at British bookmaker William Hill, and it offers solid value considering how close these teams are. They have tied in four of the last six games against one another, while Columbus have cracked three 1-1 draws from its prior four matches.
For that correct score to hit again tonight, the odds are sitting at 7.00.
Last season these teams went 1-1-1 in three meetings against one another.
The away win is being offered at 3.75. The Crew are coming off 2-0 away loss to Sporting Kansas City on Sunday and haven't tasted victoy since their road win against Seattle at the end of March.
Expect boh teams to score, whch is a bet you can scoop for 1.70, but if they both score and it stays under 2.5 total goals then a chunky 7.50 can be taken for that. For the draw and under 2.5 total goals, that sits between the other two selections at 4.33.
