Top MLS Games of The Week to Bet On (July 30th – August 1st)
Friday, July 30th Matches
- Columbus Crew +1 ½ (-161) / New York City FC -1 ½ (+122)
Because this takes place on their pitch, New York City FC is getting the benefit of the doubt. Columbus won the last match by a 2-1 score, though. But the odds imply NYFC should struggle to win. That won’t be the case. New York beat Orlando City 5-0 on July 25. NYFC continues the roll.
Soccer Pick: New York City FC
- Atlanta United +285 / Orlando City SC -114
Orlando City has a win, a draw, and 3 losses in their last 5. Atlanta United shows 2 draws and 3 losses in their last 5. On April 17, these two drew 0-0. Either team could win this. However, another draw looks like the optimal bet.
Soccer Pick: Draw
- Portland Timbers +235 / Los Angeles Galaxy -101
On July 24, Portland fell by a goal, 1-2, against Minnesota United. The Galaxy lost 0-4 to Dallas on July 24. There’s a chance LAG turns it around in this, but since Portland beat Los Angeles 3-0 on May 22, the Timbers are the better play.
Soccer Pick: Portland Timbers
Saturday, July 31st Matches
- New England Revolution +190 / New York Red Bulls +125
New England Revolution has won 3 straight. The Revolution have also taken the last couple of head-to-head matches. The odds make New England an overlay.
Soccer Pick: New England Revolution
- DC United +136 / FC Cincinnati +180
Cincinnati has won 3 and drawn twice in their last 5. On July 25, DC United beat the New York Red Bulls 1-0. DC U could make it 2 in a row, but the home squad is due. Give Cincinnati a shot.
Soccer Pick: FC CincinnatI
MLS Weekly Betting Update
- CF Montreal +220 / Inter Miami CF +108
Since neither team is in very good form, it makes sense to check out the head-to-head. CF Montreal has never lost to Inter Miami. Montreal is 3-0, including winning the latest face-off on July 3. The road team is the play.
Soccer Pick: CF Montreal
- Real Salt Lake +230 / Houston Dynamo +104
On July 24, Real Salt Lake beat Colorado Rapids 3-0. That should give RS Lake an edge in this match because the Dynamo show 4 draws and a loss in their last 5. Houston can win this. The odds force us to give Real Salt Lake a look.
Soccer Pick: Real Salt Lake
- Colorado Rapids +225 / Austin FC +121
On April 24, Austin FC beat Colorado Rapids 3-1. The Rapids head into this after an 0-3 loss versus Real Salt Lake on July 24. As long as Austin shows odds above even money, they’re the play.
Soccer Pick: Austin FC
- Minnesota United FC -117 / Vancouver Whitecaps FC +275
Vancouver shows a win and 2 draws in their last 3. Minny United shows 2 wins and a draw in their last 3. The draw happened against LAFC on July 28. The odds imply the Whitecaps don’t have a chance. Maybe, the home team doesn’t. But they could force a draw, which would lead to a nice score.
Soccer Pick: Draw
Sunday, August 1st Match
- Nashville SC +185 / Toronto FC +133
On July 24, Toronto beat Chicago and Nashville beat Cincinnati. Nashville’s victory impressed more. Also, Nashville has won the last couple of head-to-head matches.
Soccer Pick: Nashville
