CONCACAF Champions League Quarter Final Matches to Must Bet On
Comunicaciones vs New York City FC
- When: Tuesday, March 8 at 8:00 pm ET
- Where: Pratt & Whitney Stadium, East Hartford, CT
- Handicap Odds: Comunicaciones +1 ½ +115 / New York City FC -1 ½ -151
- ML Odds: Comunicaciones +1200 / New York City FC -475 / Draw +500
- Over/Under: O 2 ½ -156 / U 2 ½ +113
The Guatemelan League isn’t one of the best in the Western Hemisphere, but Comunicaciones outworked the Colorado Rapids in a couple of matches to secure their quarterfinals spot. Comunicaciones has won 3-of-5 with a draw and a loss.
The loss was a 1-goal match to Colorado. New York City FC has also won 3-of-5 with a loss and a draw. But NYCFC’s loss and draw have happened in their last couple of matches.
No doubt, New York City FC should win this, but giving a quality team like Comunicaciones a goal and a half at above even money makes for a bad bet. At +1 ½ and +115, the Comunicaciones handicap is the play.
Soccer Pick: Comunicaciones
Club Leon vs Seattle Sounders FC
- When: Tuesday, March 8 at 10:00 pm ET
- Where: Lumen Field, Seattle, WA
- Handicap Odds: Club Leon +½ -208 / Seattle Sounders -½ +155
- ML Odds: Club Leon +185 / Seattle Sounders +165
- Over/Under: O 2 ½ +140 / U 2 ½ -196
This match happens in Seattle, which is one of the reasons the Sounders are a slight moneyline chalk. After handicapping the match, that’s the only reason Seattle is the favorite.
The Sounders aren’t playing well. Seattle has lost 3-of-5 with a win and a draw. 2-of-3 losses happened in Seattle’s last couple of matches.
Both games ended 1-0. Nashville beat the Sounders on Feb. 27. Real Salt Lake beat Seattle 1-0 on March 5. The win did impress, a 5-0 victory CD Motagua, but Leon plays in a much deeper league than Motagua.
Motagua throws down in the Honduran League. Leon is in fourth place in the Mexican Liga. Leon is on fire. They’ve won 4-of-5 with a draw against Monterrey.
The odds make Leon an overlay. Seattle has home pitch advantage, but the Sounders aren’t better than Leon. Also, Seattle has struggled in their last couple of matches.
The Sounders could surprise, but at +165 they’re a bad play. The Mexican Liga is as deep, if not deeper, than MLS. Leon is one of the best teams in the Mexican League. The road squad can win this in regulation.
Soccer Pick: Leon
