Best MLS Predictions Today: Saturday, July 15

This is another match between a pair of seemingly even sides.

Playing at Providence Park in Portland isn’t as intimidating this season as it has been in previous years, but you know the Timbers will put up a fight in front of their home supporters.

However, Portland has had a tough time getting over the hump, going 2-2-2 in its last six MLS matches at home.

Looking at their last three games overall, the Timbers lost once and have drawn twice.

This is a tricky, cross-country road trip for the Columbus Crew, but they enter this contest with strong form, having gone unbeaten in their last eight.

That includes three draws in their last five outings. Columbus has finished with a tie in each of their last two road games as well.

All in all, it feels like Columbus is the better side at the moment, but Portland’s home-field advantage should be enough to keep them in the game and eke out a draw.

Best MLS Predictions Today: Wednesday, July 12

These sides seem pretty even at the moment. You could argue that Seattle has more talent overall, but that could be negated by the fact that the Sounders are playing on the road for this midweek match.

San Jose has ended three of its last five games in a draw, and that includes two of its last three home matches finishing without a victor.

Seattle has finished with a draw in three of its last six games overall.

These two teams met on May 31 in Seattle, and San Jose won a tight game by a score of 1-0. However, the Sounders had 23 shot attempts compared to just 8 for the Earthquakes.

There’s not much separating these two teams, and taking +220 for the draw on the three-way moneyline looks appealing.

Best MLS Predictions Today: Saturday, July 8

The LA Galaxy are currently riding a six-match unbeaten streak. Their recent impressive 2-1 victory over LAFC at the Rose Bowl Stadium stands testament to their resurgent form. Key contributors to this victory, Riqui Puig and Tyler Boyd, will undoubtedly be under the spotlight in the upcoming faceoff against the Philadelphia Union.

The Philadelphia Union are fifth in the Eastern Conference while showing some resiliency in away games this season. They are 8-2-4 in MLS games since April 1 despite losing to Atlanta United 2-0 last Sunday. You better believe Philadelphia will be hungry to get back on track out west.

DraftKings Sportsbook places the odds for a draw at +255. Considering LA Galaxy’s record of seven home draws and the Union’s overall quality, a draw seems a likely outcome. The Galaxy have drawn in four of their last five games overall, and this seems like a spot for another.

Best MLS Predictions Today: Wednesday, July 5

Charlotte FC has maintained an upper hand in their historical encounters with NYCFC, having won all three matches since they joined MLS in 2022. They average 2.3 goals per match against NYCFC’s average of 1.

Recent performances tell a compelling story. NYCFC’s victory over CF Montréal ended their longest winless streak in club history. Charlotte, on the other hand,  approaches this game off the back of a 0-0 draw against CF Montréal on June 24 while resting since that date.

Assessing these statistics and recent performances, the odds seem to favor Charlotte FC. However, home-field advantage is instrumental in MLS, and NYCFC could use the momentum from their last victory to defend their home pitch at Citi Field.

Putting those considerations together, betting on the Draw at +235 odds makes for an attractive wagering option.

Best MLS Predictions Today: Tuesday, July 4

We earned a win by taking Minnesota United on Saturday, as they came through with a 4-1 victory. Let’s keep our winning record alive on Tuesday!

There are six games to choose from on Tuesday, July 4 — and we are setting our sights on the FC Dallas vs. DC United matchup.

Dallas is fresh off an impressive 2-0 home victory on Saturday over one of the best teams in the league: LAFC.

In its most recent home game prior to that, June 7 vs. St. Louis SC, Dallas came through with another 2-0 victory.

On the other hand, DC United has lost three of its last four matches. The road results haven’t been great either, dropping three of four away from home.

There’s a quick turnaround in this match, and FC Dallas is staying home while DC United will travel from Nashville (where they lost 2-0 on Saturday) to Dallas.

Go ahead and take FC Dallas to get the job done at home once again.

Previous MLS Predictions Today: Saturday, July 1

We took a chance on FC Cincinnati last Saturday, and it didn’t work out. For this week’s MLS prediction, we are siding with a home team that could be underpriced despite rounding into form.

Minnesota United has had a tough time this season while playing the first several months without star Emanuel Reynoso. However, the Argentinian is back on the pitch and creating magic for the Loons.

Even though Minnesota United squandered a 2-0 lead at Real Salt Lake last Saturday, things are looking up for a Loons attack that has been reinvigorated by Reynoso’s presence.

Meanwhile, the Portland Timbers have struggled away from home, going 1-5-3 in their last nine outside of Portland. These two sides faced each other in Portland on May 20, and the Loons pulled off a 1-0 victory despite a compromised attack without Reynoso.

With improved form and home-field advantage on their side, expect Minnesota United to emerge victorious once again.

Best MLS Predictions Today: Saturday, June 24

If you’ve been keeping up with Major League Soccer this season, you know that FC Cincinnati (13-1-4, 43 points) is absolutely dominating the Eastern Conference.

Cincinnati has a tight turnaround on the road at DC United on Saturday, but there’s still a good chance the Orange and Blue gets the job done. Here’s why:

  • FC Cincinnati has a 4-0-1 record in their last five matches, while DC United (6-8-5, 23 points) has a 1-3-1 record.
  • Cincinnati has won its previous head-to-head matchups against DC United with a 2-1 victory in May.
  • FC Cincinnati has been strong on the road, winning three of their last four away games.
  • DC United has struggled at home, scoring only one goal in each of their last two home games.

FC Cincinnati has the momentum, the head-to-head record, the road game prowess, and the goal-scoring chops to take down DC United this Saturday. It’s tough to win on the road with only a few days rest, but Cincinnati is the superior talent in this matchup.

Go ahead and take FC Cincinnati moneyline at +215 odds on DraftKings Sportsbook.

Previous MLS Predictions: Wednesday, June 21

FC Cincinnati is currently dominating the MLS Eastern Conference standings, with an impressive record of 12 wins, 4 draws, and 1 loss from 17 matches. With that, they’ve accumulated a total of 40 points this season.

A victory against Toronto FC would enable them to match the MLS record for the most consecutive wins to begin a season at home (10). Given their stellar performance so far, we believe FC Cincinnati is the best bet for the day, which is enough to dub the Orange and Blue as our top MLS prediction today.

FC Cincinnati is tied (with LAFC) for the second-fewest goals conceded this season, and they have found ways to win matches of all kinds. Cincinnati has recorded 10 of their 12 wins by a single goal, including six by a 1-0 score, which demonstrates that Cincy knows how to hold onto a lead.

On the other hand, Toronto has struggled on the attack, scoring the third-fewest goals in the Eastern Conference this season.

Expect FC Cincinnati to put the clamps down on a floundering Toronto attack and pick up a record-tying home victory.
