Vancouver Whitecaps vs Houston Dynamo prediction

Kick-off: 2230, 05/08/2022

Stadium: BC Place

TV: TSN/ESPN+

Vancouver Whitecaps will be looking to get their home form back on track against Houston.

The Whitecaps have lost their last two on home soil, having not suffered defeat in six outings there previously, but the good news is that the Dynamo are struggling on the road this term.

A home win at 2.25 is our first Vancouver Whitecaps vs Houston Dynamo prediction.

Vancouver Whitecaps Odds

Vancouver have hit a sticky patch over the last month, failing to win in five outings.

The Whitecaps lost at home to Minnesota and Chicago, while also drawing at Cincinnati, Portland Timbers and Nashville.

They fought back well to secure a 1-1 stalemate on Sunday in their first-ever meeting with Nashville, with Javain Brown’s 87th-minute goal clinching a point.

Vancouver are having no problems in front of goal, but they are struggling to keep opposition out at the other end.

They have netted six goals and conceded 10 during their winless run.

Vancouver have seen three goals or more in six of their 11 home games, while Houston have experienced the same in their last seven away fixtures.

A home win and over 2.5 goals is Vancouver Whitecaps vs Houston Dynamo odds.

Houston Dynamo Odds

Houston, two points behind Vancouver in the Western Conference table, are in dire form with 11 defeats in their last 16 matches.

The Dynamo have conceded 29 times during that run and leaked six in their last outing.

Mikkel Uhre scored twice while Daniel Gazdag, Jack McGlynn, Julian Carranza and Quinn Sullivan were on the scoresheet as Philadelphia Union ran riot at Subaru Park on Sunday.

That result continued their awful displays on the road, with eight losses coming in 11 games.

Add that to their poor record at Vancouver and everything points heavily towards a home win.

Vancouver have never lost at home to Houston, winning three and drawing three, with four of those matches seeing both teams scoring.

A home win with both teams scoring at 4.10 completes our Vancouver Whitecaps vs Houston Dynamo betting tips.
