Inter Miami vs Houston Dynamo: Best Soccer Bets for US Open Cup Final

Not to be dramatic, but according to official reports, Lionel Messi is questionable for Wednesday’s clash between Inter Miami and Houston Dynamo at DRV PNK stadium. However, if you ask me, that’s just head coach Gerardo Martino playing mind tricks.

The Argentinian superstar didn’t play against Orlando on Saturday to recover and there will be a title at stake here. Besides selling millions of dollars in t-shirts, Miami signed Messi to make a difference in matches like this.

Let’s check our soccer odds and predictions for the US Open Cup Grand Final.

Inter Miami Non-Losing Streak at Home

Inter Miami hasn’t lost in its last eight home matches and is 6-1-0 since Messi started playing. Most recently, they crushed Toronto FC 4-0, and the Argentinian only played 35 minutes.

That’s why they come in as the online sports betting favorites. And to be honest, they would remain favorites even if Messi was ruled out. This is a very different team than the one that lost 1-0 the last time these two met.

Jordi Alba and Sergio Busquets rested last Saturday. Leonardo Campana scored four goals in his last four appearances, and Houston has not been great on the road, winning only one of its last 10 away games.

Go ahead and include Inter Miami in your soccer betting ticket. The franchise won its first title a month ago – the Leagues Cup – and wants to feel that ecstasy again.

Expect Goals

These two have collided three times, and the total has gone over three goals in only one of those encounters. Precisely, the total for Wednesday’s clash is set at three goals.

The match that went over the total was played in Miami and Messi didn’t play in any of the previous meetings. As we have mentioned in other articles, it doesn’t matter if Messi scores; his sheer presence makes everybody around better.

Finally, regardless of the result, the Houston Dynamo scored in eight of their last 10 games in all competitions.

Amine Basi is the team’s top scorer with nine goals, followed by Corey Baird with seven. Inter Miami conceded in four of their last five matches. Trust me, the visitors will contribute to the total to go over.

Let’s Talk Numbers

I already established that I expect Inter Miami to win and both teams to score, a prop that offers a +240 price, making it one of the best soccer bets today.

Now, it’s time to talk about the winning margin. I believe Messi will play, but not the entire game. Plus, the Dynamo already clinched a spot in the MLS playoffs, while Inter Miami is still in the race. In other words, Houston can go all in with nothing else to worry about. Therefore, I expect a close contest in which Miami will win by one goal. That’s +330 in our sportsbook.

Finally, go with Houston scoring last at +150. After doing his thing, Messi will come out and Houston will take advantage to reduce the deficit.
