MLS Soccer Betting Odds:
DC United 3 (-122) +382
The United step into this weekend’s action sporting an 8-6-11 record that ranks them 8th in the Eastern Conference of the MLS. It’s been 4-years since DC came in first in the conference and it’s clear the club is having a hard time replicating that success. They’ve been declining since 2015 and it’s looking like this year will result in back to back losing seasons. Nevertheless, DC United has posted a 3-2 record in their last 5 games. This proves they have yet to give up on the season. And although they have hopes of picking up a road win this Saturday, the MLS soccer betting odds feel differently.
Players to Watch: Yamil Asad (23 GP, 9 G, 3 A), Darren Mattocks (23 GP, 9 G, 0 A), and Luciano Acosta (24 GP, 7 G, 9 A).
New York City FC
The City that never sleeps enters this weekend’s matchup flashing a stellar 14-6-8 record that pegs them as the 3rd best team in the Eastern Conference. So far this season, New York has racked up 48 points on the year. That 48-point tally places New York 7-points behind the conference leading New York Red Bulls and 6-points behind the 2nd seeded Atlanta United FC. With those numbers in mind, it’s clear New York City FC can make a push for the lead in the conference. Nevertheless, their 1-1-3 record in their last 5 games isn’t helping them out in that regard. Luckily the franchise can rebound this Saturday by at home by taking out a weaker opponent.
Players to Watch: Ismael Tajouri-Shradi (22 GP, 11 G, 1 A), David Villa (19 GP, 10 G, 4 A), and Maximiliano Moralez (28 GP, 8 G, 7 A).
