New England Revolution vs Houston Dynamo
The New England Revolution has 16 points in the East Division. Although they beat the New York Red Bulls in the United States Open Cup, they lost their second match to Orlando City SC. The Revolution isn’t playing great soccer, but they should still beat the Houston Dynamo.
Houston hasn’t looked good in their last 5 matches. They could only beat Austin Bold FC 3-2 at the United States Open Cup. They lost to Minnesota United FC and the Portland Timbers. The Timbers dominated Houston 4-0 on June 22. New England is the play.Soccer Betting Pick: New England Revolution
San Jose Earthquakes vs L.A. Galaxy

Portland dominated the L.A. Galaxy 4-0 on June 19. The Galaxy is only 6 points behind LAFC in the MLS Standings, 31 to 37. Although the Galaxy hasn’t been in great form, 3-0-2, in their last 5, they should handle the Earthquakes on June 29.

Seattle Sounders vs Vancouver Whitecaps
Seattle is in a decent position on the MLS Standings. The Sounders are in third place with 26 points. They’ve been in awful form, though. Seattle has a 0-1-4 record in their last 5 matches. They must turn things around to have any shot versus Vancouver.
Although Vancouver only has a single win in their last 5, they have drawn 4 times. The Whitecaps play decent soccer. They probably should have beaten the Colorado Rapids on June 22. When these two played on Sep. 15, Seattle won 2-1. In the match on March 30, the two squads drew 0-0. Expect Vancouver to get the victory on Saturday.
