Dallas Looking for an Online MLS Betting Tie atop the West
Posted by: Charlie Smith
The 4th of July gives most of the US a much needed break and what better way to use this allotted time than online MLS betting. Major League Soccer has a total of 5 contests lined up for soccer betting fans, with all 5 contests beginning this evening to ensure players are inebriated in order to enjoy the soccer action to the maximum.
4th of July’s Online MLS Betting Lineup
Tuesday’s action will kick off later on in the evening with the Atlanta United hosting San Jose. The contest featuring the Minnesota United versus Columbus will begin simultaneously. Atlanta United currently ranks 5th in the Eastern Conference with 27 points while San Jose ranks 4th in the West with 26 points. Likewise, Minnesota ranks penultimate in the West with 18 points while Columbus ranks 6th in the East with 25.
The most intriguing contest features FC Dallas going toe-to-toe with DC United. Dallas is in second place in the West and United currently ranks last in the East. This leads many online MLS betting fans to believe that Dallas will be walking away victorious this evening.
Colorado, who currently rank 9th in the Western Conference with 19 points, will face off against the Seattle Sounders this evening. The Sounders are ironically ranked 8th in the same conference, owning a 2-point lead over Colorado. Colorado will be looking to bridge that gap this 4th of July.
The 6th seed in the West will face the Real Salt Lake, who rank dead last in the Western Conference. LA Galaxy will likely come into that contest as favorites.
Accounting for how much FC Dallas stands to win this evening, let’s take a look at what the sportsbook odds are predicting for this evening’s matchup.
FC Dallas vs. DC United – Tuesday, July 4th
When: 8:30 pm ET
Where: Toyota Stadium, Frisco, Texas
TV: Local Broadcasts
Stream: MLS TV
FC Dallas -1 ½ (+131) 2 ½ (+122) -241
DC United +1 ½ (-146) 2 ½ (-137) +746
FC Dallas/DC United Draw +399
As aforementioned, FC Dallas comes into this contest as the second best team in the Western Conference. Dallas has amassed 28 points on the season, all thanks to the 7-7-3 record they’ve posted this online MLS betting season. Dallas is fortunate to be in the West. For had they been in the East, 28 would only be good enough for a 5th place ranking. Dallas is only 3 points behind Sporting KC, who lead the West. Needless to say, a win against DC United would tie them for 1st.
DC United comes into this matchup as a heavy betting underdog. That’s all thanks to the pitiful 18 points the franchise has racked up this season. DC United achieved that tally by delivering a 5-3-10 that paints them as the 2nd worst team in the league. DC United has lost their last two MLS games and is likely to extend that streak to 3.
