Houston Dynamo vs. Columbus Crew SC Online Soccer Betting Picks
Posted by: Mike Davis
MLS fans will have to undergo a brief hiatus this week as the online soccer betting action kicks off again this Saturday. Granted, the added time allows sports betting players to truly size up this weekend’s action. With that in mind, let’s take a look at the Houston Dynamo vs. Columbus Crew SC pairing. What kind of turnout should MLS sportsbook bettors anticipate?
Houston Dynamo vs. Columbus Crew SC – Saturday, August 11th
When: 7:30 pm ET
Where: Columbus Crew Stadium, Columbus, Ohio
Stream: Watch ESPN
Online Soccer Betting Odds:
Columbus Crew SC -154
Houston Dynamo +303
Columbus Crew SC/Houston Dynamo +276
The Dynamo charge into this weekend’s action sporting a meager 7-6-9 record that ranks them near the bottom of the Western Conference. In fact, it ranks Houston 10th in the Western Conference with a total of 27-points on the year. While 27 points might have placed you in the playoff running for the Eastern Conference, in the West it isn’t doing very much for Houston. Right now they’re a whopping 15 points behind the conference leading FC Dallas. On the other hand, they’re only 7 points behind the 6th seeded Real Salt Lake. With a bit of luck, Houston could bridge that gap and make a push for the playoffs. Granted, they’ll probably need a little more than a bit, especially since they enter riding a 3-game losing streak.
Players to Watch: Mauro Manotas (21 GP, 11 G, 0 A), Romell Quioto (22 GP, 4 G, 8 A), and Tomas Martinez (21 GP, 4 G, 3 A).
Columbus Crew SC
The Crew leap into this weekend’s action flashing a 10-6-7 record that ranks them 4th in the Eastern Conference. Although they’re only 12-points behind the conference leading Atlanta United FC, the Crew’s +1 goal differential on the year makes it clear that this team is not speeding past the competition. However, they are consistently edging out wins. Testament to this is the fact that they’re entering on a 2-game winning streak. The online soccer betting odds are sticking with Columbus this weekend, which isn’t surprising given who they’re facing.
Players to Watch: Gyasi Zardes (23 GP, 13 G, 0 A), Federico Higuain (20 GP, 4 G, 5 A), and Pedro Santos (19 GP, 1 G, 3 A).
