Galaxy head to Seatle in MLS Monday Night Futball classico

Simple gang … back the home side in this one at good odds.

Don’t fall for the draw. A prime time Monday night game will produce goals and a winner.

Prediction: 2-1 Seattle Sounders

PS,
Caught some flack for not posting Saturday/Sunday. Sorry. Future note, if no predictions posted, probably not a good idea to play. Three road dogs won and a unpredicted draw highlighted the weekend, so we backed off until tonight.

Go Sounders! Go Big!

Chivas is a dangerous foe right now – MLS Soccer Friday Night

The headline speaks for it’s itself.

After crushing both mid-week games with 3 unit payouts, back to business this Friday night with an intriguing match-up between Chivas USA and Colorado Rapids.

Oddsmakers have moved the line in favor of the home side with a pretty significant money line to swallow to back them. We feel this is a trap game as sportsbooks are looking to get back what they’ve lost the last couple days.

Chivas is desperate team and makes them a dangerous team in MLS Soccer.

We’re leaning to the draw in this one for big value with very generous odds. Expect some goals as well.

Prediction: 2-2 Draw

Some great games set for the weekend. Check back Saturday afternoon for our weekend picks.

Go Big!

RSL gets back on track at Rio Tinto (MLS Soccer Thursday)

Let’s keep it simple. Both teams have been struggling to find form of late. RSL has much better talent on paper and are playing in one of the toughest places for a visiting team to win a match in all of MLS Soccer.

We’ll back the home team to get back on track with possibly a clean sheet against a Montreal team that failed to even win 1 game on the road. If the odds are too much to swallow, give the 3/4 on the AH and make it happen captain.

Don’t over think this one and go with the better side with possibly even a clean sheet.

Prediction: 2-0 Real Salt Lake

It won’t even be close on the stats table.

Go big!

Goonies to spoil Yallop return to San Jose (MLS Soccer Week 19)

In the midst of a ton of club friendlies tonight, there’s one match that counts to the MLS Soccer standings and both teams will be fighting for points tonight with Frank yallop’s return to the San Jose Earthquakes as the Chicago Fire’s manager.

To keep it short and sweet, both are tired and on short rest, and both desperately need points. We love the Goonies in this situation. At first glance draw seems logical, but we’ll back the home team in this one with great odds.

Prediction: 2-1 Quakes

Go Big!

MLS Soccer mid-week action for July 16, 2014

MLS Picks is back!!!

After a World Cup break, we are back and better than ever for the webs best picks in MLS Soccer.

So let’s cut the crud and bring you our mid-week locks…

New York at Philadelphia

A struggling Philadelphia Union hosts New York to get us going Wednesday night. On paper in the table, the Red Bulls seem like the bet of the night – but slow your roll. Philly is desperate for points and need a home win. Granted, they aren’t very good, but this has upset written all over it. We’ll back the Union to come out on top at great +odds. The over 2 3/4 play seems really nice play as well. Prediction 2-1 Union in a nail biter.

Sporting Kansas City at Columbus Crew

SKC and the Crew renew their Easter Conference rivalry in the next match on Wednesday’s card. Not sure if Higuain is playing, and that could have a factor. This game has draw written all over it, although Dom Dwyer might say otherwise. Tough call on this one, but we’ll back even steven at 90 minutes. Prediction: 1-1 Draw.

Vancouver at Toronto

Battle Canada follows and this one will piss people off. Vancouver is improving and really need points. Toronto can be hit or miss – even at home. This one at first glance screams to back the home side with generous odds – which is a red flag for us. We’ll take our second draw of the evening in this one with lots of goals. Prediction: 2-2 Draw.

New England at Los Angeles

And in the night cap, NE vs. LA. This is our upset pick of the week. The Revs have stunk up the place the past five outings, but typically have success out West. LA has not looked good at all, squeaking out wins. We’ll back the visitors in this one at long-shot prices +400 for an all-out victory at the Stub Hub Center – which we all know happens at least once in a season. This is that game, so scoop it up and head to sizzler! Prediction: 1-0 Revolution.

Good luck and Go large!

Your final MLS Soccer picks before World Cup break

Two games on the slate tonight with big value and standing implications.

First, DC United goes on the road to Montreal. At first glance, you’re probably like wow, I’m taking DCU at a huge positive money line. But what the sharps see is a huge value pick on the home team, that let’s face it, they have struggled to find their form. DC has not won in Montreal in previous two meetings, fyi, with both games also going over 2.5 goals. We love Montreal tonight to get a home win with big value, and the over is pretty solid as well. Recommend big plays on both of these and also take Montreal on the AH. Prediction: 2-1 Montreal.

Later, Portland returns home after a big road win at Rio Tinto of all places to clash with FC Dallas. This is an intriguing match up of these squads. First glance, the over looks like a sure bet – nice weather expected, two high-scoring teams, etc. However, both teams have pretty solid backlines and goalkeepers. Plus, like we’ve said, these teams really match up against each other well in style, quickness, and overall general play. The chainsaw will go off tonight for the Timbers, but not often as we think FC Dallas comes away with a point. Prediction: 1-1 Draw.

Enjoy the World Cup. We won’t be posting anything MLS related until after July 13. Go Big!!!! Go USMNT!

MLS Soccer Week 13 betting predictions

Lots of soccer, gang…

MLS has a full slate of games this weekend and there are a ton of International Friendlies. Quick note, that we will not be posting MLS predictions during World Cup as we’ll shift our focus to those games only. Please make a note of it.

Ok, so for this weekend …

Seattle and RSL battle in the Pacific Northwest with what looks to be gorgeous weather. Wow! We like the home team to get a win here at a meager value of -119. Great prop bet would be for the Sounders to keep a clean sheet. Take the Sounders on the AH. Prediction: 2-0 Seattle.

We expect a lot of goals in Toronto today hosting Columbus. Laying on the side and focusing our money mostly on the total score. Could be 3-1 or 2-2 result for either side — take over 2.5 goals.

Draw City in Montreal vs. the Revs today. Prediction 1-1 Draw.

DC hosts struggling SKC in an eastern conference showdown. We love draw in this one as both teams need a result to stay in the top tier. Normally we wouldn’t expect too many goals in a conference game, but EJ and Dom Dwyer both should have good days today. Prediction 2-2 Draw.

FC Dallas host San Jose. These teams are enigma to say the least. Handicappers giving both teams plus on the money line so maybe they see what we see — another draw with late-game goonies tying in extra time. Prediction 1-1 Draw.

Chivas and Philly both stink. Pass.

Sunday…

USMNT will be action against Turkey. The yanks need a good showing.

Chicago hosts LA. Prediction 2-2 Draw.

That’s all we’re going to play this week. Go Big and Go USA!

MLS Soccer Week 13 Kicks off Tuesday Night!

Defending champion Sporting Kansas City hosts the New York Red Bulls tonight without right back Chance Myers, who was lost for the season with a ruptured Achilles tendon. SKC has struggled, but NYC is not good on the road – never have been. We’ll lean to a Draw tonight, but the better play might be the over with NYC going over 60% of the time this season and SKC’s Dom Dwyer a terror up front. Prediction: 2-2 Draw.

In other quick notes, there are international friendlies worth looking at the odds – one being the USA tonight.

USA Manager Jurgen Klinsmann says he expects the lineup that he starts against Azerbaijan on Tuesday night at San Francisco’s Candlestick Park will be close to the starting lineup for the opening game of the World Cup June 16 against Ghana. Might be worth taking the yanks tonight in the tune-up match. Over looks pretty tasty as well since he will be experimenting quite a bit the US backline – one that has struggled in recent outings.
Prediction: 3-1 USA.

 

Memorial Day Weekend edition of MLS Soccer Picks and Predictions

A Friday night game, a Cascadia Cup match, and the possible MLS return of Landon Donovan highlight a busy weekend of MLS play. We also have the big Champions League Final that we’ll highlight, too.

It begins Friday when Sporting Kansas City and Toronto FC, deprived of their national team players, battle in a key matchup of Eastern Conference teams. We do foresee a lot of draws and low-scoring affairs this weekend. Here’s the lowdown…

Friday night lights…

  • Toronto at SKC. We like Draw in this one as both teams are missing key personnel. Prediction 1-1 Draw.

Special for Saturday…

We are rooting for Real Madrid for the Champions League title. We picked them to go all the way with 20-1 odds early in the campaign, so we’re crossing our fingers they pull through and we cash out! Prediction 3-1 Real Madrid.

MLS Saturday…

  • Portland is better on the road than most think. Red Bulls are a quandry? Prediction 2-2 Draw.
  • The kings of draw are Vancouver. Why should we deviate against a depleted Sounders. Prediction 1-1 Draw.
  • Columbus might pull out a home win this week. We’ll take them +125. Prediction 1-0 Crew.
  • New England and DC is intriquing as both have started stronger than most expected. The sucker play is over at small odds. Eastern Conference foes know each other well and expect a battle. Prediction 1-1 Draw.
  • Montreal is bad. Colorado is decent. However, why are the odds at only -116 for the home team? That tells us that a draw is not out of the question as most have written off Montreal. Expect goals. Prediction 2-2 Draw.
  • Biggest dog of the weekend is FC Dallas going to Rio Tinto against RSL. A tough place to play but without Rimando and Beckerman, a decent FC Dallas squad might shock some folks. We’re going for it at +420. Prediction 2-1 FC Dallas in an road upset.

Sunday Sunday Sunday…

  • LA hosts Philly. Shouldn’t be a problem and LD now has something to prove. Prediction 2-0 Galaxy.
  • Houston laid an egg earlier this week on the road and jets across country to San Jose, who really does stink up the joint right now especially without Wondolowski. Draw looks good. Prediction 1-1 Draw.

Have a great Memorial Day weekend everyone. Go Big!

Mid-week action kicks off MLS Soccer Week 12

Two games on the slate tonight … both could be lucrative for sharps.

Game 1, DC and Houston. Under, Under, Under boys and girls. With thunderstorms in the forecast, Eddie Johnson suspended, and two really good goalkeepers between the pipes, don’t expect many goals. Matter of fact, we may go with a clean sheet for both for once and could be a high payout prop play. Prediction: 0-0 Draw.

Game 2 for Carson, LA is desperate for a win. Over looks fantastic in this one and despite the Galaxy’s struggles, they are really really tough at the Stub Hub Center. Prediction 2-1 Galaxy.

Get that paydirt today, boys and girls. Go Big!
