Top MLS Games to Bet On the Weekend
Top MLS Weekend Matches
- When: Saturday, July 17
Saturday, July 17th Matches
- New England Revolution +135 / Atlanta United FC +165
Atlanta United has 3 draws and a couple of losses in their last 5 matches. New England Revolution has 2 losses and a draw in their last 3. On May 1, New England beat the ATL 2-1. The Revolution looks tough to beat, but by backing Atlanta United, we get a decent home team at better odds than what the road squad offers. That’s a good deal in our eyes.
Soccer Pick: Atlanta United FC
- Inter Miami +350 / New York Red Bulls -135
Miami has lost 5 straight. The New York Red Bulls have a victory and 2 draws in their last 3. It’s always tough to accept low odds, but NYRB should have no trouble on Saturday. The Red Bulls are the play.
Soccer Pick: New York Red Bulls
- New York City FC +160 / Columbus Crew +155
The Crew has drawn in 3 straight. New York City FC has a couple of victories and a loss in their last 3. In the last head-to-head, on May 22, the Columbus Crew beat NYFC 2-1. Give the Crew the nod.
Soccer Pick: Columbus Crew
- DC United +290 / Philadelphia Union -109
Philly Union has a victory, a loss, and 3 draws in their last 5. DC United beat Toronto FC 7-1 in their last match. On May 23, Philadelphia beat DC 1-0. Based on the odds, P. Union is an underlay while DC United is an overlay. Backing overlays is always better than backing underlays.
Soccer Pick: DC United
- Orlando City SC +160 / Toronto FC +142
The odds reflect what this should be, a tough match between two decent squads. Toronto beat New England Revolution 3-2 on July 7. Orlando City heads into this after losing their last couple. Orlando has won the last two head-to-head, which is why they’re the team to back in this match.
Soccer Pick: Orlando City SC
MLS Weekly Betting Update
- FC Cincinnati +225 / CF Montreal +108
It’s going to be tough to find a more difficult soccer match to handicap this weekend than FC Cincinnati versus CF Montreal. The home team in this rides a 2-match winning streak into Saturday. Cincinnati drew 1-1 with Houston Dynamo on July 3. On July 9, FC Cincy drew 2-2 against the Columbus Crew. On May 22, Cincinnati beat Montreal 2-1. The odds make the road squad an overlay.
Soccer Pick: FC Cincinnati
- Los Angeles Galaxy +104 / Vancouver Whitecaps FC +220
The Galaxy have won 3-of-4. Even though Vancouver is the home squad in this, it’s tough seeing the Whitecaps getting past LAG. Give the Galaxy a nod in a match where the oddsmakers appear to be giving Vancouver too much credit for playing on their pitch.
Soccer Pick: Los Angeles Galaxy
- Real Salt Lake +1 ½ (-169) / Los Angeles FC -1 ½ (+126)
LAFC appears to have gotten it together. Los Angeles struggled early in the season. The preseason favorite to win the MLS Cup has turned things around, winning 3-of-4. On July 3, LAFC beat Real Salt Lake 1-0. Don’t be surprised if the home team beats their rivals again, this time by 2 goals instead of 1.
Soccer Pick: Los Angeles FC
- FC Dallas +270 / Portland Timbers -114
On Saturday, Portland and Dallas have something to prove. The Timbers will head into this on a 2-match losing streak. FC Dallas has a draw and a loss in their last couple of matches. Not only is Dallas in slightly better form, but they beat the Timbers 4-1 in the last head-to-head. That match happened on May 1. Even if the Timbers beat Dallas, backing Portland at the odds isn’t a good play. Hoping Dallas steps it up at +270 is.
Soccer Pick: FC Dallas
