Top MLS Games of The Week to Bet On (May 29th – May 30th)
Saturday, May 29th Matches
- CF Montreal +285 / Chicago Fire FC -120
The Fire had been on a 4-match losing streak. On May 22, though, Chicago beat Inter Miami 1-0. CF Montreal has lost 2 straight. Montreal does have a victory over Inter Miami just like the Fire. That’s a good enough reason to back the road dog.
Soccer Pick: CF Montreal
- Orlando City +188 / New York Red Bulls +122
This should be a competitive match. Before the Red Bulls 2-match losing streak, they had won 2 straight, beating Chicago Fire and Toronto FC by the same 2-0 score. Orlando City has 3 wins and 2 draws in their last 5. NYRB is an underlay at their current odds. Give Orlando the nod.
Soccer Pick: Orlando City
- Toronto FC +211 / Columbus Crew +108
On May 22, Columbus got back to winning soccer matches with an entertaining 2-1 victory over New York City FC. That should be all the Crew requires to go on a win streak. Toronto is an okay soccer club. But they shouldn’t beat Columbus on the road.
- Nashville SC +204 / Atlanta United FC +112
ATL U and Nashville show similar form. Atlanta has a win and 3 draws in their last 4. Nashville has 2 wins and 3 draws in their last 5. In the last head-to-head, Nashville rolled, beating Atlanta U 4-2. The odds make Nashville an overlay. So that’s the way were going.
Soccer Pick: Nashville
- New York City FC +295 / LAFC -136
On May 22, after dropping matches to the L.A. Galaxy and Seattle Sounders, Los Angeles FC grabbed a 2-1 victory over the Colorado Rapids. New York City has 2 draws and a loss in their last 3. These two have drawn in their only head-to-head matches. LAFC should win, but this season their form has been spotty at best. Another draw is possible.
Soccer Pick: Draw
MLS Weekly Betting Update
- San Jose Earthquakes +233 / L.A. Galaxy -106
Galaxy fans had won 3-of-4 and 2 in a row. It sure looked as if LAG might be one of the better teams in MLS this season. But, then, the Galaxy traveled to Portland where the Timbers promptly dominated them 3-0. The Earthquake are on a 3-match losing streak. Ah, but in the last head-to-head, San Jose trembled the Galaxy with a 4-0 win. Give the Earthquakes a shot.
Soccer Pick: San Jose Earthquakes
- Houston Dynamo FC +338 / Sporting Kansas City -151
KC is in great form. Sporting has 3 wins and 2 losses in their last 5. Houston has 2 wins, 2 draws, and a loss in their last 5. On May 12, Houston beat Sporting KC 1-0. Even though this happens on Kansas City’s pitch, the Dynamo are good enough to win again.
Soccer Pick: Houston Dynamo
- FC Dallas +257 / Colorado Rapids -128
Save for a May 22 loss to LAFC, Colorado has rocked it. The Rapids had won 3 straight before the Los Angeles loss. Big D drew 2-2 with Real Salt Lake in their last. Before that, Minnesota beat Dallas 1-0. We often prefer dogs in MLS, but the Rapids’ odds are fair.
Soccer Pick: Colorado Rapids
Sunday, May 30th Matches
- Portland Timbers +241 / Philadelphia Union -120
The weekend’s best Major League Soccer match pits two of the top squads in the league against each other. After a rough start to 2021, Portland has settled down. The Timbers are on a 2-match winning streak. Portland beat San Jose 2-0 on May 15. On May 22, the Timbers dominated the Galaxy 3-0. Philadelphia Union has 3 wins and 2 draws in their last 5. The odds on Union don’t make them an underlay. But Portland could be on the verge of a 4 to 5 game winning streak. The Timbers are the play.
Soccer Pick: Portland Timbers
- Austin FC +366 / Seattle Sounders FC -175
At -175, the Sounders may be an overlay. Austin has lot 3 straight, including a 1-0 defeat to Nashville in their last. Seattle drew 1-1 with Atlanta in their last. The Sounders had won their previous 4 games. Lay it.
Soccer Pick: Seattle Sounders FC
