3-0 - Lost
Houston are firmly in the chase for top spot in the Western conference and won 9, drawn 7 and lost 7 of their 23 matches played so far. They currently sit in 2nd place, 3 points behind leaders Sporting Kansas. They have scored 39 goals( 2nd best in the league) and conceded 32 goals. So we know their defense is not so tight.
San Jose are in 6th place but are just 2 points off 2nd place and tonight's opponent so a win could take them as high as second place depending on other results. Their away form has been dismal all season as they have won just twice in 11 away matches, losing an astonishing 9 times. Stats like that wont help their cause considering tonight opponent haven't lost a game at home in 11, winning 8 of them.
Houston have won 4 of the last 6 h2h matches losing just once and drawing the other. I expect them to come out victorious in this encounter also but their leaky defense should make this a high scoring affair with both teams scoring. A selection that would have paid out in Houston's last 5 home matches and at decent odds of 3.40, that is my pick for this encounter.
