Portland Timbers at Houston Dynamo Prediction Thread

The Portland Timbers are on the road again. How will it turn out?

Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

The Portland Timbers take on the Houston Dynamo at noon and they are in serious need of points. Losing every game on the road just won't cut it and, even with plenty of games yet to go, the Timbers need to start closing the gap on the teams ahead of them if the playoffs are still the goal.

Will this be the match that the Timbers take their first three points this year? Who will step up and put the Timbers back on track for this season? Can the team contain a similarly desperate Dynamo side?

Let's get busy making some predictions.

Here is what we are looking for:

  • The final score.
  • The goalscorers.
  • The timing of the goals.

The more specific the prediction, the better.

The rules: Get your predictions in before kick-off. Correctly predicting the score is worth two points, correctly predicting a goal scorer is worth one point, and coming close to the timing of a goal is worth one point. That's about it. I reserve the right to award bonus points for excessively awesome/accurate predictions.

Check out our game preview, interview with SB Nation's Dynamo Theory, and most recent training reports to make sure that your predictions are as accurate as possible.
