Houston vs Colorado (By: TFB)
After a routine 5-0 US Open Cup victory against amateur side NTX Rayados, Houston return to home soil to play the MLS's bottom side Colorado Rapids.
Houston have a reputation of being a strong home side and they recently showed this by comfortably beating New York City 3-1. They are currently on a 4 game home winning streak scoring a huge 16 goals!
Their cup match in midweek gave the Dynamo a chance to rest their star players and field some fringe players with it being a relatively easy match for them.
Colorado on the other hand crashed out of the cup to USL side Nashville. The Rapids have been poor away from home for some time and this defeat has taken the club to a new low. Bottom of both Conferences combined, Colorado have lost their last 8 games home and away.
They even fielded their top scorer, Badji, in the loss to Nashville but even he was unable to make an impact.
Colorado will need to up their game considerably to get anything on the road against Houston.
You can get better odds elsewhere if you shop around.
