MLS Odds Analysis & Game Predictions

With nine games taking place, we take a look at where you should be on the moneyline for the fixtures in the Eastern and Western Conferences this weekend.  

New England Revolution vs. New York Red Bulls 

Neither side has enjoyed a stellar start to their 2016 campaign, with The Revs yet to win and New York Red Bulls only taking maximum points once from their opening three games. The record between the two teams is an interesting one, with the home tea completely dominant in recent match-ups. New England Revolution do not look in the form to continue that trend, but in Lee Nguyen have a mercurial talent who will be keen to show why he should be a starter for the national team. Red Bulls have won their most recent league game, a thrilling 4-3 win, and while both sides will be mindful of their general poor league starts, we’re sure there will be goals. 

Tip: Take the -125 line on there being more than 2.5 goals. Both sides’ defense looks susceptible to pressure.

Chicago Fire vs. Philadelphia Union 

Both sides had a season to forget last year, but while Chicago Fire are winless from their opening three games, The U are flying high, sitting pretty at the top of the Eastern Conference, albeit after only three games. With Chicago’s home form being a worry and Philadelphia Union on a strong run, the bet has to be with the value that Chicago try to take the game early, but are eventually overhauled by the team in better form. 

Tip: Chicago to lead at half-time but Union to win the game is at +2500 and is well worth a shot. 

Colorado Rapids vs. Toronto F.C. 

With Toronto now in the middle an eight-game road swing that kicks off their 2016 MLS campaign, they’ll be looking to pick up a win against Colorado Rapids, just as they did in their only MLS meeting to date last September. In that game, Toronto ended a Rapids run of two wins. This time, a victory would halt back-to-back unbeaten games for The Rapids. But while both sides will be desperate for the win, we think the lack of goalscoring prowess will count against them, and the under2.5 goals market is just too appealing. 

Tip: Go for the -115 Moneyline on there being fewer than 2.5 goals. 

F.C. Dallas vs. Columbus Crew SC 9.00pm Saturday 2nd April 

F.C. Dallas celebrating

F.C.Dallas have already begun their season very well, with three wins from four games putting them in a strong position for what we think will be a real challenge for the Western Conference title. This weekend they face a Columbus Crew side who are in the exact opposite situation.

The Crew are rock bottom of the Eastern Conference without a win in three and are not in the best place to take on a side with the attacking talents of Castillo, Diaz and Urruti. F.C. Dallas have a spring in their step, and our favourite bet of the weekend is to see them comprehensively take care of Columbus Crew. 

Tip: F.C. Dallas to be winning at half-time and full-time (+150) 

Other MLS Tips: 

Sporting Kansas City vs. Real Salt Lake 8.30pm Saturday 2nd April 

Draw (+255) 

Vancouver Whitecaps vs. L.A. Galaxy 10pm Saturday 2nd April 

Both teams to score (-155) 

Seattle Sounders vs. Montreal Impact 10pm Saturday 2nd April 

Total goals for Montreal Impact over 1.5 (+225) 

San Jose Earthquakes vs. D.C. United 10.30pm Saturday 2nd April 

Draw H-T/San Jose win F-T (+280) 

Orlando City vs. Portland Timbers 8.00pm Sunday 3rd April 

Orlando City to win (+130)
