Playoff hopefuls Houston Dynamo can extend their winning streak to four overnight, with an away win against Colorado Rapids. It would equal their best record since March last year, as they're showing signs of progress under new head coach Tabare Ramos Ricciard.

By contrast, Wednesday's hosts remain winless since play resumed in July (six games) and are only above bottom side San Jose on goal difference in 11th place after eight matches.

Robin Fraser needs a response from his players, who have recorded successive draws but need more if they're to mount a serious playoff charge themselves. Can they begin their resurgence here? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Colorado Rapids vs Houston Dynamo Betting Tips

Goals from two substitutes – Alberth Elis and last season's top goalscorer Mauro Manotas helped Dynamo recover from 1-0 down to beat Sporting Kansas City last weekend. By contrast, Rapids needed an 81st-minute equaliser from Kei Kamara to share the spoils against San Jose Earthquakes.

Having turned 36 earlier this month, you'd be forgiven for expecting Colorado's other forwards to step up but the Sierra Leone international remains reliable as ever. It's likely all three will feature from the start for their respective sides, as both look to earn an important victory for different reasons.

Interestingly, six of Rapids' 15 goals conceded so far this season have occurred between the 75-90th minute mark.

Head coach Fraser will stress that statistic to his players, urging concentration and a collective defensive effort under pressure – easier said than done, admittedly. Darwin Quintero, Darwin Ceren and the aforementioned duo from the bench will look to exploit a backline that usually wilts towards the latter stages of matches.

Colorado Rapids vs Houston Dynamo Correct Score Predictions

In 19 previous meetings, Colorado are slightly ahead (seven wins, seven draws, five defeats) but that record has slowed in recent years. They've only won one of their last five H2H fixtures, so watch to see how both sides line up after a quick turnaround.

There's usually goals in this matchup and I'm predicting a narrow Dynamo victory as they aim to extend their impressive recent form.
