MLS Weekend Games Preview | Soccer Betting Analysis – May 13th Edition
Orlando City SC +160 vs Toronto FC +165
- When: Saturday, May 14 at 3:00 pm ET
Toronto has home pitch advantage, which is why the odds make the home squad a slight underdog. But although this happens on Toronto’s pitch, the home team has struggled.
Toronto is 0-4 straight up in their last 4 games. Orlando City has won 3-of-5. These two drew in the last head-to-head. In the head-to-head before, Orlando City beat Toronto 3-2. The road squad is solid.
Soccer Pick: Orlando City SC +160
Los Angeles FC +170 vs Colorado Rapids +150
- When: Saturday, May 14 at 3:30 pm ET
Because this happens on the Rapids’ pitch oddsmakers have given Colorado the benefit of the doubt. They shouldn’t. Los Angeles is playing like Major League Soccer’s best team.
LAFC has won 4-of-5 with a draw. The draw happened versus Philadelphia Union in a 2-2 match on May 7. Los Angeles beat Colorado 3-0 earlier this year on Feb. 26. A similar score is possible even if this happens on the Rapids’ field.
Soccer Pick: Los Angeles FC +170
Columbus Crew +1 -129 vs New York City FC -1 +102
- When: Saturday, May 14 at 7:00 pm ET
Columbus has a win, 2 losses, and 2 draws in their last 5. New York City FC shows 4 wins and a draw in their last 5.
In the last head-to-head, NYCFC blasted Columbus 4-1. New York City is playing lights out while Columbus is struggling. At -1, we get our money back if NYCFC only wins by a goal. Luckily for us, New York City should win by at least 2.
Soccer Pick: New York City FC
New York Red Bulls +205 vs Philadelphia Union +138
- When: Saturday, May 14 at 7:30 pm ET
Sporting Kansas City +250 vs Portland Timbers +105
- When: Saturday, May 14 at 1:00 pm ET
Portland hosting Sporting KC should be one of the most competitive MLS matches of the day. The Timbers have drawn 3 times and lost twice in their last 5.
Portland and Sporting drew 1-1 in the last head-to-head. The last head-to-head happened last August. So a lot of time has past since then. The road team heads into this off a 4-2 victory against Dallas. Before the win, KC had drawn in 3 straight. The draw looks like a solid play.
Soccer Pick: Draw
Minnesota United FC +1 -147 vs Seattle Sounders -1 +111
- When: Sunday, May 15 at 4:00 pm ET
Seattle blasted Pumas UNAM 3-0 to win the CONCACAF Champions League. Since winning the CONCACAF Champions League, the Sounders have lost 2 straight.
But although Seattle isn’t playing well, this happens on their pitch. The handicap odds mean we get our stake back if we back Seattle at -1. That’s a more than fair bet on the Sounders to get back on the winning track. Seattle can win this by more than a goal.
Soccer Pick: Seattle Sounders
