MLS Matchday 12 Betting: What Should You Bet this Weekend | MyBookie Soccer Betting Preview

MLS Week 12: May 13-14, 2023


New York Derby

New York Red Bulls vs New York City FC
MLS Odds: Red Bulls -0.5 +100, City FC +0.5 -128 / Red Bulls +105, City FC +285, Draw +230 / O/U 2.5
When: Saturday May 13, 7:30 pm ET
Where: Red Bull Arena | Harrison, New Jersey
TV / Streaming: ATV

The two New York teams had opposite results in the U.S. Open Cup this week. The New York Red Bulls were victorious over D.C. United, while New York City FC lost at FC Cincinnati. On Saturday, they meet up at Red Bull Arena for their first meeting of 2023, and both teams looking to get the momentum back on their side.

The Red Bulls made a coaching change last week, and the team responded by winning 1-0. The team hasn’t been scoring goals, but that could change with a new coach and system. If Troy Lesesne can find a little magic, the defense has been good enough to carry this team up the standings. 

NYCFC doesn’t have to go far this week, but they’ve lost two straight on what is a five-game road trip. Dating back to last July, they have just two wins in their last 14 road games, and this year they have just two draws in six road contests.  Last year they won both Hudson River Derby games with a 1-0 win in New Jersey and a 2-0 win at home. 

Both teams are desperate for a win. MyBookie has the Red Bulls as the favorites at +105 on the moneyline, with NYCFC at +275. A draw is +230 and could be the way to go on this one as it seems to have 1-1 written all over it.

An Interesting California Clasico

LA Galaxy vs San Jose Earthquakes
MLS Odds: Galaxy -0.5 -118, Earthquakes +0.5 -107 / Galaxy -112, Earthquakes +295, Draw +280 / O/U 2.5
When: Sunday May 14, 9:30 pm ET
Where: Dignity Health Sports Park | Carson, California
TV / Streaming: ATV

The LA Galaxy may have turned things around this week with a U.S. Open Cup win over first-place Seattle Sounders. They took advantage of the Sounders’ resting key players and possibly snagged some much-needed confidence with a pair of goals and a home win. 

Now they welcome longtime rivals San Jose Earthquakes to town for a California Clasico. The road team has won the last four matchups in this rivalry, and after the Galaxy dominated the series for years, San Jose is 5-3 in the last eight games. 

This is officially the worst MLS start in Galaxy history, with just six points from 10 games. Meanwhile, San Jose has 18 points after 11 games, their most since 2016, but they haven’t won on the road this season. In fact, their only win in the last 25 games away from home came at the expense of the Galaxy last July. 

A bet to look at for this game is for Earthquakes striker Jeremy Eboibisse to score. He has netted a goal in all five career games at Dignity Health Sports Park and he has eight goals in 10 career games against the Galaxy. On the moneyline the Galaxy are -112, with the Earthquakes at +295 and a draw at +280.
