MLS Weekend Betting Lines Analysis

MLS Weekend Betting Lines Analysis
Matchday 7 of the 2016 Major League Soccer season sees a full schedule of games played with all 20 teams in action over the course of the weekend. Who will you be putting your money on to win?

MLS Games Preview, Predictions & Matchup Comparison

Colorado Rapids (+123) vs. New York Red Bulls (+215)

Colorado Rapids

Who would have thought that after five games played the New York Red Bulls would have only one once and lost their other four fixtures? Well that is the reality and once Matchday 7 is completed, we expected the Red Bulls to have lost their fifth match of the season.

Colorado Rapids host the out of sorts Red Bulls having one of the tightest defences in the MLS with only three goals conceded while the goal shy Red Bulls have only scored four times and they all came in their one and only victory of the season so far.

The Rapids go into the match with odds of +123 to win and we do not see any reason to look any further than that outcome, sorry Red Bulls fans.

Pick: Colorado to win at +123

Columbus Crew SC (-127) vs. New York City FC (+355)

Columbus Crew SC

Columbus Crew host New York City FC this weekend still searching for their first taste of victory in the 2016 season. Three defeats and two draws from five games have left the Crew rooted to the bottom of the Eastern Conference and bottom overall.

Bookmakers price a Crew win at -127 but that just does not look like yielding any value at all, and also makes the +355 available on the NYC FC victory seems massively long. If Crew can fire on all cylinders, and both Federico Higuain and Kei Kamara find their scoring boots, the Crew could well justify their short odds, but it is a bug if, and for that reason we’re looking at the draw at +280 as our value bet.

Pick: Draw at +280

Seattle Sounders (-127) vs. Philadelphia Union (+360)

Clint Dempsey

With one win, a draw and three defeats from their opening five games, the Seattle Sounders really need a boost even this early in the season, and I suspect it will come against Philadelphia Union, despite Union flying high.

Union are a team who, traditionally, do not travel on the road very well as is evident by them losing two from their three away fixtures already this season. While the Sounders are out of sorts at the moment, they still have a good, strong squad, and they play attractive soccer, so surely this is the week they add another three points to their tally?

Pick: Seattle to win at -127

Chicago Fire vs. Montreal Impact – Draw at +225

D.C. United vs. Toronto FC – D.C United to win at +122

Orlando City vs. New England Revolution – Draw at +250
