Pair of MLS Weekend Games In The Spotlight: Involves Soccer Betting Predictions

Written by on October 9, 2020

With the 2020 MLS season rolling right along and heading into an action-packed weekend, it’s time to take a look at two matchups that both look like they’re offering plenty of value. First, Miami hosts Houston in an interconference clash of playoff long shots. Shortly after, Atlanta looks to close ground – and snap a losing streak – against the New York Red Bulls. Now, let’s find out where the best value lies in both matchups.

Miami is sitting in 12th place in the Eastern Conference with 1 points. Miami has scored a modest 16 goals while allowing 26 goals defensively. Miami snapped a three-game losing streak by recording a hard-fought 2-1 win over the New York Red Bulls on Wednesday.

Gonzalo Higuain scored the go-ahead goal on an amazing free kick to lift expansion Inter Miami CF to a 2-1 victory over the New York Red Bulls.

The Dynamo are sitting in ninth place in the Western Conference with 19 points. Houston has scored 24 goals this season while allowing 26 goals defensively. The Dynamo have gone 1-2-2 over its last five games but comes into this matchup off a 2-0 win over Dallas on Wednesday. Darwin Quintero and Darwin Ceren scored goals to help the Dynamo overcame playing the entire second half with 10 men. Rookie goalkeeper Marko Maric recorded the third shutout of his 16-game career by turning back eight shots.

Game Prediction

Miami is playing at home where they’ve gone 2-1-3 while Houston is 1-4-4 on the road. More importantly, Inter has scored two goals in each of their last two outings and three times over their last five games while Houston has been limited to one goal or less three times in their last four games. I like Miami at home as a slight underdog.

Game Details

Venue: Inter Miami CF Stadium
When: Saturday, October 10
Time: 6:00 PM ET

MLS Odds

Atlanta +144
New York +170
Draw +234



Atlanta is in ninth place in the eastern conference standings with 18 points. The United have gone 2-1-1 over their last four matches and comes into this affair off a scoreless draw against Orlando City on Wednesday, following their 4-0 smackdown of DC in their previous match. Atlanta has scored 17 goals this season and allowed 19 defensively.

New York is in seventh place in the eastern conference with 20 points. The Red Bulls have dropped two straight including a 2-1 loss against Miami on Wednesday. New York fell against expansion Miami on Gonzalo Higuain’s free kick. New York is 2-2 over their last four matches and has scored 19 goals this season while allowing 21 defensively. Omir Fernandez scored in the 53rd minute and David Jensen finished with two saves for the Red Bulls.

Prediction

While the Red Bulls recorded a 1-0 road win over Atlanta on July 11 to extend their winning streak to four games in this rivalry, I’m going with the United to get some revenge in this meeting. The United have first in second half goals allowed average (0.3) while New York ranks an uninspiring 20th in second half goals scored (0.6). Atlanta has held the opposition to zero goals in three of their last four matches and I believe that kind of defense is why the United will prevail in this Saturday showdown.
