Top 2022 MLS Matches to Bet On: Austin vs NYRB, and Philadelphia vs Orland City Highlights Weekend Action

There are just two weekends of games left in July for MLS teams as the schedule rolls into the second half of the season. With the summer transfer window in full swing, teams are adding new major players to their rosters.

The last two weeks have also seen some significant trades, with former MVP Alejandro Pozuelo heading to Miami and Canadian National Team midfielder Mark-Anthony Kaye going to Toronto FC.

In addition to the player moves, D.C. United hired England legend Wayne Rooney as head coach, and he will take charge this weekend. D.C. also traded Julian Gressel to Vancouver Whitecaps and brought in Miguel Berry from Columbus. United sit in last place in the East as they prepare to face CF Montreal this weekend. 

With all those moves, the league has two big games this weekend, with the top five teams facing each other. The Eastern Conference-leading Philadelphia Union travels south to face fifth-place Orlando City SC.

Meanwhile, Austin FC are just one point out of first place in the West as they welcome the third-place New York Red Bulls to Texas in a cross-conference matchup. It’s time to look at the top matches for the weekend so you can place your bets against their MLS Odds.

Austin Hosting Game of the Week

Both Austin FC and New York Red Bulls played rivalry games last weekend. Austin got on the board for a 1-1 draw at FC Dallas, but the Red Bulls lost at home 1-0 to NYCFC. 

Those results left Austin FC in second place, one point behind LAFC, while the Red Bulls are now third in the East. These teams didn’t play last year when Austin was new to the league, so they have never met.

The Red Bulls welcomed center defender Sean Nealis back from suspension against NYCFC, but they were unable to find a goal. Lewis Morgan has a team-best nine goals on the season, and Luquinhas has five. 

Austin has scored in 11 straight games, with multiple goals in six of those games. It adds up to Austin having the most goals in the league with 42, or 2.0 per game. 

Diego Fagundez had the equalizer against Dallas, while Sebastian Driussi leads the team with 11 goals. Those two have also combined for 12 assists and form one of the most potent tandems in the league. 

At MyBookie, Austin FC is a +155 favorite with the Red Bulls at +165. A draw is +235. Over 2.5 goals is -135 and under 2.5 goals is +100.

Union Suffocating on Defense

While Austin FC gets it done in front of goal, the Philadelphia Union protect their net like no other team in the league. The Union are in first place on the season with only 15 goals allowed in 21 games. They head to Orlando City with a +18 goal differential and only two losses on the season. 

Philadelphia is in first place in the East by one point over NYCFC, and Orlando City is in fifth place, nine behind the leaders. Goalkeeper Andre Blake has played every minute for the Union this season while posting a league-high eight shutouts. 

Julian Carranza leads the Union in goals with seven goals. He had a hat trick against D.C. United two weeks ago and teams with Mikael Uhre atop the Union offense. Uhre has three goals in the last three games and has six goals overall. 

Orlando has tied their last two games 1-1, their first stretch of consecutive draws on the season. Ercan Kara leads the team with seven goals, while Facundo Torres has four. Goalkeeper Pedro Gallese has seven shutouts on the season and is 1-1-1 in his career against the Union.

At MyBookie, the hosts from Orlando City are favored at +140. The first-place Union are +190 to take all three points, while a draw is +230. The total goals is 2.5, with the over at -116 and the under at -108.
