Top MLS Games of the Weekend Matchday 2
New England Revolution vs Chicago Fire
Both squads lost their first MLS match of the season. The Fire fell 2-1 to the Sounders. New England lost to Montreal by a 2-1 score. Both teams have a shot. That makes the dog, Chicago, an attractive play.
Soccer Betting Pick: Chicago Fire
Real Salt Lake vs New York Red Bulls
No doubt, this is one of Saturday’s top matches. Real Salt Lake drew with Orlando City in their first match. The Red Bulls beat Cincinnati 3-2. Although New York won their game while Salt Lake drew, back Real. New York allowed Cincinnati to score 2 goals while Real kept Orlando at a goose egg.
Soccer Betting Pick: Real Salt Lake
FC Dallas vs Montreal Impact
- MLS Odds: FC Dallas -172 / Montreal Impact +415
FC Dallas is a major favorite to put a beating onto the Montreal Impact. It makes sense. Dallas beat Philadelphia 2-0 in their Week 1 MLS match. They can go to 2-0 on Saturday.
Soccer Betting Pick: FC Dallas
Toronto FC vs New York City FC
- MLS Odds: Toronto FC -125 / New York City FC +288
Toronto’s draw with San Jose in their last should set them up well for the victory here. New York City FC struggled with the Columbus Crew. Toronto grabs the win.
Soccer Betting Pick: Toronto FC
Atlanta United vs FC Cincinnati
- MLS Odds: Atlanta United -270 / FC Cincinnati +579
A top MLS squad, most expect ATL United to dominate FC Cincinnati. The odds are tremendous on Cincinnati to pull off the upset. Although underdogs can win in MLS, it’s asking a lot to back the dog in this game, though. Atlanta is much better while Cincinnati yielded 3 goals to the New York Red Bulls in their last. Go ATL.
Soccer Betting Pick: Atlanta United
Sporting KC vs Houston Dynamo
- MLS Odds: Sporting KC -169 / Houston Dynamo +383
In their first 2020 MLS Season battle, the Dynamo stepped it up. Houston drew 1-1 with the L.A. Galaxy. That terrific performance could carry over into Saturday’s match. It won’t matter much. Sporting KC dominated Vancouver 3-1 in their first match. Give KC the nod.
Soccer Betting Pick: Sporting KC
LA Galaxy vs Vancouver Whitecaps
Vancouver’s offense won’t keep up in their battle with the Galaxy on March 7. The Galaxy scored a single goal against Houston in their first match of the season. But the Whitecaps yielded 3 goals in their first match. Galaxy win by at least 2.
Soccer Betting Pick: L.A. Galaxy
Seattle Sounders vs Columbus Crew
The defending champion Seattle Sounders started the defense of their title off on the right foot. Seattle beat Chicago 2-1 in their first game of the season. Columbus beat New York City FC 1-0 in their first match. The Crew offers decent odds while the best time to get to the champs is early on in the season. Back the Crew.
Soccer Betting Pick: Columbus Crew
