FC Dallas vs Houston Dynamo: Match Predictions

We has a derby!

MLS: Houston Dynamo at FC Dallas Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

FC Dallas managed a draw against Columbus, which depending if you’re a glass half full or glass half empty kind of person, may be a good or a bad thing. Dallas did take the lead twice, but also did give up the lead twice too. But now all eyes are focused on a trip down to Houston in the Texas Derby for some state pride. After a strong start to 2020, Houston has fallen off a bit and are 10th in the standings and have lost Alberth Elis, who has joined Reggie Cannon abroad. Dallas will want some points here to push them firmly into a top playoff spot.

The staff are continuing to make picks this season and we’re going with a simple points system for 2020:

Name Result for FCD FCD Score Opposition Score Commentary
Name Result for FCD FCD Score Opposition Score Commentary
Ben Lyon Win 2 1 The smug comments from Sounders fans this week...
Jack Rous Win 2 0 How do they do it? Ricardo Pepi
Jason Poon Loss 0 2 It's been fun but I'm not seeing a way out of Seattle with a win.
Jeff Loftin Loss 1 2 Close loss after controversial play at the other end which mysteriously doesn't get VAR treatment.
Mohammad Bushnaq Loss 1 2 Valiant effort but Dallas falls short in the Pacific NW for their revenge bid.
Nathan Hill Draw 2 2 FC Dallas advance on PKs and claim the Cascadia Cup. Goals from Jara and Pepi.
Ryan Scanlon Loss 1 3 Seattle’s quality and combination play will be too much for FC Dallas which will not let us get away with what we pulled off against Portland. Michael Barrios gives us a glimmer of hope with a goal before Jordan Morris and Nick Lodeiro put this out of reach.

Nathan still holds the lead among us.
