MLS Bets You Should Make
MLS Betting Guidance & Betting Lines
By Matt Pitt
Toronto FC (-135) vs. Philadelphia Union (+360)
Toronto FC top the Eastern Conference by two points and could go five points clear if they beat Philadelphia Union at home and New York Red Bulls fail to beat Montreal Impact.
The Canadian side fought back from being 3-1 down in their last game against the Red Bulls to tie 3-3 thanks to a brace of goals from Jozy Altidore, the second of those goals coming in the 86th minute to rescue a point for the home side.
Union don’t tend to travel well as is evident by their 3-8-4 away record, and they lost 2-1 on the road last week to Portland Timbers.
I don’t see any other result than a win for Toronto especially now Altidore has rediscovered his scoring touch and Sebatian Giovinco is on 16 goals for the season.
Pick: Toronto FC at -135
LA Galaxy (-205) vs. Seattle Sounders (+550)
LA Galaxy drew 2-2 against Sporting Kansas City last week thank to a late goal from Landon Donovan who had only recently come out of retirement. The tie, Galaxy’s 15th from 30 games, put the LA side on 48 points only five behind Western Conference topping FC Dallas.
Galaxy entertain Seattle Sounders in their next game and should claim all three points. The Sounders have only won two games on their travels this season, drawing four and losing eight times from 14 fixtures. This record simply won’t do against a side such as Galaxy who are 8-0-7 on home soil.
This is the fourth time the two sides have faced each other this season, Galaxy winning 1-0 away and drawing 1-1 away in the MLS, but running out 4-2 winners in the US Open Cup in July.
Pick: LA Galaxy at -205
DC United (+105) vs. Orlando City (+250)
DC United could sneak into the playoff places with a win at home to Orlando City, who themselves could leapfrog United if they secure what would be only their third away win of the regular season.
United are 6-4-4 at home this season with Orlando 2-6-6 when they are on the road. The teams have only met four times previously, DC winning twice, including a 2-1 home win in May 2015, one draw and an Orlando victory.
DC drew 2-2 away at Chicago Fire last week, Bobby Boswell rescuing a point in the 92nd minute, while Orlando were smashed 1-4 at home by struggling Columbus Crew SC. While I don’t envisage Orlando rolling over again, I do see DC taking all three points from this encounter.
Pick: DC United to win at +105
