MLS Betting tips and predictions – 28/4/19

Montreal Impact vs Chicago Fire

Montreal Impact return home after an impressive midweek win away from home against the New England Revolution. Remi Garde’s side are in formidable form at home as they prepare to host Chicago Fire who will be hoping to bounce back from their defeat during the week in New York.

The Impact have only lost once in their last 13 games at Saputo Stadium, coming against Atlanta United in July 2018. They’re currently on a run of seven unbeaten at home ahead of Sunday’s game against the Fire who haven’t won on the road in their last 15 attempts.

1.80 for a Montreal Impact victory looks good value considering Chicago Fire’s run without any success away from home and how dominant the Impact have been on home soil.

Minnesota United vs DC United

Another home game at Allianz Field for Minnesota United as they get set to take on DC United who are three points clear at the top of the Eastern Conference and have had a bright start to 2019. Again, I think DC United have been priced high here, just like they were last time out against Columbus where they won thanks to an exquisite free-kick from the influential Wayne Rooney.

3.50 for a DC United win is very attractive, but I would look towards the draw no bet option for a cushion, and that still comes at an appealing 2.55.

Seattle Sounders vs Los Angeles FC

Seattle Sounders vs LAFC is a mouth-watering clash on paper and one that should no doubt deliver and provide plenty of goals and high-quality moments.

It is the second time the two sides will meet in the space of seven days after they played each other over the Easter Weekend. LAFC were victorious, winning 4-1 at the Banc of California Stadium in the early hours of Monday morning. Carlos Vela was influential during the win, scoring twice and continuing what has been an amazing start to 2019. The Mexican has scored 10 goals and banked five assists in nine appearances so far – the best player in Major League Soccer in my opinion.

Over 3.5 goals has landed in Seattle’s last three games in succession, as well as in 3/4 of LAFC’s away games so far. It’s 2.40 to happen again this weekend, and I also fancy to Vela to get himself on the scoresheet again at 2.75.

LA Galaxy vs Real Salt Lake

The LA Galaxy have had a fantastic start to 2019, they currently sit in second place in the Western Conference trailing only to their LA rivals, LAFC. The Galaxy are currently six games unbeaten and had won five games on the bounce before drawing 0-0 in Minnesota during the week.

They will host fellow Western Conference side Real Salt Lake this weekend who seem to be picking up form after a disappointing start to the year. RSL had lost four games in a row before recently turning things around with back-to-back wins over both Orlando City and FC Cincinnati.

LA Galaxy have won all five of their home games so far this season, with each win seeing over 1.5 goals. That looks like a good bet to happen again against Real Salt Lake, you can get it at 1.72.
