MLS Game Betting Odds & Predictions

By Paul Seaton

Featured Games

Saturday 23rd July

Montreal Impact (-110) vs. Philadelphia Union (+275) 7.30pm ET

Union have the chance to return to the top of the Eastern Conference, but we think they'll fall short. Why? Ignacio Piatti, known as 'Nacho', has 11 goals in the MLS so far. The Argentinian specializes in close control and lethal finishing. He's an unbelievable +250 to score at any time and he'll 'ring the bell' again at the weekend. 

Check out some of Nacho's finest moments in an Impact shirt to date: 

Colorado Rapids (+125) vs. FC Dallas (+215) 9pm ET

Dallas made light work of Chicago Fire last week and in Castillo and Diaz in particular have quick, intelligent players who can harm The Rapids, even on their own turf. 

Check out the goals from Dallas last week: 

With Dallas three clear at the top of the Western Conference, Rapids could draw level. But we think that pressure and Dallas' focus will give the away side a shock victory. It's great value at +215. 

Sunday 24th July 

NY Red Bulls (-115) vs. New York City FC (+290) 1pm ET

The big game of the weekend sees the rivalry resume between both New York sides. They were virtually level when Red Bulls celebrated this stunning win earlier in the season: 

Since that day exactly two months ago, however, City have been on the rise. They're top of the Eastern Conference and can upset the odds across town. Take the away win at a huge +340.

Other Games

Friday July 22nd 

Real Salt Lake (-110) vs. San Jose Earthquakes (+305)

This will be another example of two stubborn defenses cancelling out both teams' attacking flair. Take the Under 1.5 goals bet at +230.

Saturday 23rd July

Portland Timbers (+135) vs. L.A. Galaxy (+195) 3.30pm ET

Portland haven't lost any of the last six games, while Galaxy are unbeaten in five. Galaxy haven't conceded in their last three games (all victories) but we think this game will preserve both teams undefeated recent form. Take the tie at +230.

New England Revolution (-145) vs. Chicago Fire (+400) 7.30pm ET 

Fire have lost their last seven games on the road, and have failed to win across an incredible 34 games stretching back to the summer of 2014. Take The Revs to be winning at half time and full time. It's +135, a big improvement on the straight result odds. 

Toronto FC (-110) vs. DC United (+285) 7.30pm ET 

While a sole Giovinco goal gave Toronto victory last time the sides met, we think DC could surprise the bookmakers. Take them to win at a juicy +285.

Columbus Crew (-165) vs. Orlando City SC (+400) 7.30pm ET 

Neither side is in great form, with Crew winless in half a dozen games, but they can edge out Orlando, with the away team losing two and tying two of their last four games. Ola Kamara is a great investment to open the scoring at +600. 

Houston Dynamo (+120) vs. Vancouver Whitecaps (+215) 9.30pm ET 

Neither side have lit up their conference this season and we love the +395 on offer that both halves finish level. Draw at half time and full time is our tip. 

Sunday 24th July 

Sporting Kansas City (-110) vs. Seattle Sounders (+300) 3pm ET 

Both sides are in erratic form and haven't tied a game in each of their respective three previous fixtures. That spell will be broken on Sunday afternoon and we like the odds of +475 for the game to finish 1-1. The straight tie is +235.
