NORTH AMERICAN SUPERLIGA FINAL
NEW ENGLAND REVOLUTION - HOUSTON DYNAMO
This is the third big final between the two best sides in US football, in the last two years and I fully expect Houston to claim the hat-trick, having prevailed in the last two MLS Championship games.
Both sides are missing players tonight, Dynamo are without Patrick Ianni and Stuart Holden, who are at the Olympics, Steve Nicol's Revolution are minus Michael Parkhurst and Jay Heaps, two very key defenders who are going to be sorely missed.
New England have already done the league double over Houston, but the circumstances are very different now, Dynamo are in fantastic form losing just two of their last 14, one was a match in this competion that they did not need to win, the other was one of the NE losses when they were missing six starters. Despite the absences, they created far more chances than NE (15-7), but had no luck at all, with a stronger squad, better form and the defensive problems for the home side, plus the stronger record in big finals, I have to firmly side with the visitors.
6 points Houston +1/4 ball 1.92 asian line. PICK IS OF COURSE +1/4 , SORRY, NOT WITH IT TODAY !
