Posted by: Mike Davis
The online MLS betting season is headed towards a weekend full of sportsbook action. Let’s take a look at what fans can expect this weekend before breaking down an individual match.
Weekend’s Online MLS Betting Lineup
Saturday and Sunday will offer sportsbook fans the perfect opportunity to bet on MLS soccer. Albeit, there will be more opportunities on Saturday.
The league has a total of 10 matchups lined up on Saturday, with Atlanta United facing Orlando City to kick off the action. Atlanta is looking for a win in order to come one step closer to cracking the top 3 in the Eastern Conference.
New England will face Philadelphia next, with the matchup between the New York Red Bulls and Montreal beginning in unison, at 7:30 pm ET.
Sporting KC will face off against Chicago. That contest begins at 8:00 pm ET, alongside 5 other MLS contests. Sporting KC will be looking to surpass FC Dallas in the West by picking up a win over Chicago.
However, Dallas will get an opportunity to defend their lead this Saturday when they face off against Vancouver. The online MLS betting odds are heavily favoring Dallas in that contest. Sportsbook players can find a preview of that contest here.
San Jose will square off against Colorado as well this Saturday. Neither team has much to gain from this contest.
Real Salt Lake is tasked with facing Columbus. Columbus could surpass the New York Red Bulls for 5th place in the East with a win, as long as the Red Bulls lose their contest against Montreal.
Houston Dynamo is set to challenge Portland. Portland is looking to surpass the Dynamo for 3rd place in the West.
The last contest of the day will feature the Los Angeles Galaxy lining up across from the Seattle Sounders. Let’s take a look at what the online MLS betting lines are predicting for this West Coast matchup.

Los Angeles Galaxy
The Galaxy comes into this contest flashing a 6-4-10 record that yields the franchise 22 points on the season. That tally ranks Los Angles 9th in the Western Conference, two spots away from being dead last. Furthermore, the Galaxy are 2 points behind the 8th place Real Salt Lake and own a 2 point lead over 10th place Colorado.
This contest will be one of the biggest and most alluring matchups on the weekend. However, this is mostly because of the intense rivalry between both teams, rather than any intriguing stakes on this particular contest.
The Sounders are 8-6-7 on the season which gives Seattle a total of 30 points on the season. That tally ties Seattle for 4th place in the West, alongside the Portland Timbers. The Sounders also sport a 3-point lead over 6th place Vancouver.
