Top MLS Games of The Week to Bet On (May 22nd – May 23rd)

Top 2021 MLS Picks for the Weekend

Los Angeles Galaxy (+275) Vs Portland Timbers (-126)

  • When: Saturday, May 22

The Galaxy have won 4-of-5. Their lone loss in their last 5 happened against the Seattle Sounders on May 2. The Timbers haven’t played great this season. Portland’s form could be turning around, though. The home team beat San Jose Earthquakes 2-0 on May 15. But the odds make Portland an underlay. 

Soccer Pick: Los Angeles Galaxy 

Toronto Fc (+266) Vs Orlando City Sc (-126)

  • When: Saturday, May 22

Orlando City has 2 wins and 3 draws in their last 5. Orlando has another edge because it happens on their pitch. On May 12, Toronto beat Columbus 2-0. Then on May 15, TFC drew with New York City Fc 1-1. Orlando should win. Toronto has played well enough, and the odds are high enough, to make them the play.   

Soccer Pick: Toronto Fc

Columbus Crew Sc (+363) Vs New York City Fc (-163)

  • When: Saturday, May 22

Columbus had dropped the name “Crew” from their moniker. The blowback was so intense, Columbus decided to keep the name. Whatever you want to call them, last year’s MLS Tournament winners haven’t played close to the 2020 level yet. Laying -163 is never easy. But NYFC should roll.

Soccer Pick: New York City Fc 

New York Red Bulls (+285) Vs New England Revolution (-129)

  • When: Saturday, May 22

The Red Bulls had won two in a row, but on May 15, Philadelphia beat NYRB 1-0. Is that a sign the Red Bulls are due for a losing streak? Maybe. But the odds on NYRB make them a big time overlay to win this. 

Soccer Pick: New York Red Bulls 

Real Salt Lake (+239) Vs Fc Dallas (-111)

  • When: Saturday, May 22

Dallas has drawn and lost in their last couple. Real Salt Lake shows the same form, a draw and a loss. On Oct. 24, RSL and FCD drew 0-0. Either team can win this, but the draw looks like the best play.  

Soccer Pick: Draw 

Vancouver Whitecaps (+374) Vs Houston Dynamo (-188)

  • When: Saturday, May 22

Vancouver has a single win in their last 5. Houston’s form isn’t great. The Dynamo also hasn’t won more than a single game in their last 5. The home team in this should be tough to beat. But the odds imply Houston is a lock. They aren’t.

Soccer Pick: Vancouver Whitecaps 

Sporting Kansas City (+154) Vs San Jose Earthquakes (+137)

  • When: Saturday, May 22

San Jose looked like a contender until facing the two Northwest teams, Seattle and Portland. The Sounders beat San Jose 1-0. Portland dusted the Earthquakes 2-0. Sporting KC can win this. But the home squad offers decent enough odds to attract a look.    

Soccer Pick: San Jose Earthquakes 

Colorado Rapids (+338) Vs Los Angeles FC (-156)

  • When: Saturday, May 22

What’s up with LAFC? The preseason chalk has lost 2 and drawn twice in their last 4. Colorado is on a 3-match winning streak. Los Angeles FC could struggle against the Rapids. Also, the odds on Colorado are nice.  

Soccer Pick: Colorado Rapids 

Atlanta United (+375) Vs Seattle Sounders (-153)

  • When: Sunday, May 23

The Sounders are on fire. They’ve won 4 straight. In many games, it hasn’t been close, like the 3-0 victory over the Galaxy on May 2, and the 2-0 win against LAFC on May 16. ATL U beat Montreal 1-0 on May 15. Sounders are solid. 

Soccer Pick: Seattle Sounders

Philadelphia Union (+136) Vs DC United (+174)

  • When: Sunday, May 23

Based on recent form, Philadelphia Union is an overlay. Philly Union has a couple of wins and a couple of draws in their last 4. DC has a single victory and 4 draws in their last 5. In the last head-to-head, on Oct. 14, DC U and Philly Union drew. The odds are good enough on Philadelphia to warrant a long look.  

Soccer Pick: Philadelphia Union
