Welcome to a fourth prediction thread!

Last Saturday, the Portland Timbers returned home to take on the Houston Dynamo, a Western Conference Rival that had also started the season strong with two wins. And at halftime, with a score of 2-1, it looked like their record would remain unblemished while the Timbers fell.

Houston fall 4-2 on the road against Portland.

The hype leading up to Houston's first game on the road against the Portland Timbers was pretty big almost too big to live up to. Almost. The two teams combined for 29 shots and a lot of back and forth action early on. While it wound up being a bit of a weird one, a game that included two goals off of handball calls, both teams found time in front of the net but only one team found themselves dominating possession.

The Portland Timbers are back in action this evening, taking on one of the few other teams with a perfect record through two weeks: the Houston Dynamo. To get the low down on last year's last place finishers in the West, we turned to Derek Stowers of our sister site, Dynamo Theory to get our questions answered.

Plenty of potential for more goals as the Dynamo travel to Portland.

Two out of the remaining four undefeated MLS squads will face up this Saturday in Portland when the Dynamo face the Timbers. The Dynamo are starting off 2-0-0 for only the second time in their history and another win will be new territory for the club.

The Houston Dynamo embarks on its first game on the road and they head towards inhospitable waters as they make their way towards Portland, Oregon to take on the Timbers. The Timbers are the lone team above them in the Western Conference standings and a win over them in front of their incredible fan base would certainly cause other MLS clubs to take notice of the new-look Dynamo.

Plenty of encouraging signs in Sounders’ season-opening loss

Joevin Jones' starring performance and Clint Dempsey playing 90 minutes two huge positives.

Of all the ways the Seattle Sounders hoped to begin their title defense, I think it can safely be said that the first half of Saturday's game was not one of them. The Sounders were roundly outplayed, looked sluggish and frankly like a team that wasn't quite ready to play meaningful matches.

Houston started fast and held on to a 2-1 victory over the Sounders at home in the season opener.

In a season-opening matchup between the defending champion Seattle Sounders and defending Western Conference bottom-feeders Houston Dynamo, the champs were rightfully favored to win, especially with the return of Clint Dempsey.

Seattle remains winless in Houston.

Despite a late surge, the Seattle Sounders opened 2017 with a 2-1 loss. The Houston Dynamo dominated the first half. Their posture in the final forty-five gave Seattle hope. Sounders have yet to win in Houston. Clint Dempsey scored his first goal since 21 Aug 2016, but it was a goal for honor not a result.

Six points from three games is better than most MLS teams have produced this season, and the Dynamo's new additions (notably Romell Quioto and Alberth Elis, obviously) have paid real dividends so far.
