Dallas is one of the form teams in the MLS and comes into this unbeaten in five matches.
Nico Estevez’s team have won three and drawn one of their last four home games, including back-to-back 4-1 victories over Portland Timbers and Colorado Rapids.
Houston drew 0-0 with Portland last time out, while its only away win came against struggling Inter Miami earlier this month.
Philadelphia Union are top of the Eastern Conference after seven matches and can recover from their first defeat of the season last weekend.
The Union had won five in a row prior to that, including three straight victories at home.
Montreal lost 2-1 to Philadelphia at home, and is unlikely to stand a chance on the road.

The Whitecaps have lost four out of four on the road.
Charlotte was beaten 2-1 away to New England last weekend, leaving it eighth in the Eastern Conference.
That was its fourth defeat in four matches on the road and it is one of four teams yet to earn a point away from home.
Colorado has taken seven points from its three home games, including a 3-0 victory over Atlanta United last month.
Nashville is a big price, but is worth backing against inconsistent opponents.
Gary Smith’s team have played seven games out of seven away, and taken seven points from their last three.
LA Galaxy come into this on the back of a goalless draw at Chicago last weekend, while they were beaten at home to Orlando last month.
