Top MLS Games of The Week to Bet On (July 3rd – July 4th)
Saturday, July 3rd Matches
- New England Revolution +200 / Columbus Crew +121
The Crew head into this having lost to Philadelphia Union 0-1 on June 23 and drawing with Austin FC 0-0 on June 27. New England Revolution dropped their June 27 match 1-2 versus Philadelphia Union. New England won the head-to-head on May 16. The Revolution has a chance.
Soccer Pick: New England Revolution
- Toronto FC +309 / DC United -116
Toronto FC has lost 5 straight. DC United shows a loss and a draw in their last couple of matches. These two drew twice in the last two head-to-head. Both matches happened in 2020. The odds make DC United an underlay, but Toronto FC has played awful. Another draw is a possibility.
Soccer Pick: Draw
- Inter Miami CF +175 / CF Montreal +150
CF Montreal shows a win and 2 draws in their last 3 while Inter Miami has lost 4 straight. On May 12, Montreal beat Miami 2-0. CF Montreal is at home and offers +150? We’re on it.
Soccer Pick: CF Montreal
- New York Red Bulls +330 / Orlando City SC -136
The Red Bulls last victory was on June 18. NYRB beat Nashville SC 2-0. Orlando City shows 4 wins and a loss in their last 5. It’s always tough laying odds, but Orlando should have no problem winning this home match versus their struggling opponent.
Soccer Pick: Orlando City FC
- Atlanta United FC +225 / Chicago Fire +110
On June 26, Chicago drew 3-3 versus Philadelphia Union, which is why the Fire is the favorite in this match. Atlanta United shows better form with 4 draws and a loss in their last 5. ATL U also won the last head-to-head on April 24 and it wasn’t close. Backing the road dog.
Soccer Pick: Atlanta United
MLS Weekly Betting Update
- Philadelphia Union +270 / Nashville SC +102
Both teams are in good enough form to win this. Nashville has a victory and a draw in their last couple. Philly Union has won 3 and drawn twice in their last 5. The odds don’t justify a bet on Nashville. Give Philadelphia a shot.
Soccer Pick: Philadelphia Union
- FC Cincinnati +270 / Houston Dynamo -105
The Dynamo head into this having drawn in their last 3 matches. Cincinnati has won back-to-back. Although Houston deserves favoritism, FC Cincy shouldn’t offer +270. Here’s another MLS match where backing the underdog makes sense.
Soccer Pick: FC Cincinnati
- Los Angeles FC +124 / Real Salt Lake +185
LAFC’s form is spotty at best. It’s also difficult to use the head-to-head to handicap this match. Real Salt Lake beat Los Angeles FC 3-0 on Sep. 9. LAFC returned the favor with a 3-1 victory on Oct. 4. Real Salt Lake battles Los Angeles FC on their pitch. Home grass advantage could be the difference.
Soccer Pick: Real Salt Lake
Sunday, July 4th Matches
- Seattle Sounders +190 / Colorado Rapids +119
The Sounders have 3 draws and a couple of wins in their last 5. Although they play against a strong Colorado squad in decent form, the odds make Seattle an overlay. The Sounders can upset the Rapids, which is why they’re a great play at +190 odds.
Soccer Pick: Seattle Sounders
- Sporting Kansas City +142 / Los Angeles Galaxy +154
Both teams are on a 2-match winning streak. Sporting KC and the Galaxy have also both won 3-of-5. Kansas City is the slight favorite. LAG plays this on their pitch. The home team gets the nod.
Soccer Pick: Los Angeles Galaxy
