Houston Dynamo: LWDDW
The Houston Dynamo should have an advantage in this game if Messi doesn’t play, as he is doubtful right now, and even if he does, he won’t be 100% healthy. The Orange Crush had a tougher road to this final, and they performed well in the last few games; they only lost twice in their last 11 matches.
The live MLS odds for the Houston Dynamo to get a win or a draw are really enticing. The Orange Crush have the better defense in this matchup, so their drawing chances are good enough not to ignore such odds.
Both teams are having a lot of high-scoring games lately, as the last five Inter Miami matches have averaged 4.4 goals per game, while the Houston Dynamo have scored two or more goals in five of their last eight matches. All of the last eight US Open Cup finals had at least three goals as well, keeping the decisive games pretty open.
Corey Baird is having a great US Open Cup tournament, as he has three goals and two assists and needs to score to be the joint goalscorer leader. The American forward scored in five of his last eight starts with the Houston Dynamo, and he was rested in their last game and only played in the second half.
Inter Miami are still missing Negri, Jean, and Gregore due to injuries, while Messi and Alba are doubtful for this game, and Busquets should be fine to play.
The Houston Dynamo are much healthier than Miami in this game, as Achara and Schmitt are the only players out, and they barely played all year, so it doesn’t affect them much.
This will be one of the best US Open Cup finals in a long time, and we will be going with Houston to have a positive result. Make sure you use our 2023 Inter Miami vs Houston Dynamo betting predictions and bet them at the bookmakers in the USA to have more fun watching the game.
