Its decision day in the MLS and several teams are looking to improve their position. Home advantage is up for grabs for a number of teams. There are four teams chasing two remaining playoff spots in the Western Conference.
Here are some betting selections that deserve a look.
Atlanta United vs New England Revolution Sunday October 6th 4pm
For Atlanta to lock in second place in the Eastern Conference they just have to win this game. Philadelphia are hot on their heels but a win will be enough to clinch second place no matter the result of the Philadelphia v NYC FC game.
Considering that the Revolution secured their playoff spot last weekend. The intensity may not be there for them.
Atlanta to win at -190 looks attractive.
Houston Dynamo v LA Galaxy, Sunday October 6th 4pm
LA Galaxy needs to win this to get home advantage for the playoffs. As a result, they will go all out to win this game.
This is a dead rubber game for Houston Dynamo. They cannot make the playoffs and have lost their last two matches. As a result, it is hard to see them match LA Galaxy.
LA Galaxy +135 to win is a solid pick. However, LA Galaxy To Win To Nil at +410 is worth considering.
Portland Timbers v San Jose Earthquakes, Sunday October 6th 4pm
San Jose’s form has been atrocious. They have lost their last five games. As a result, they must win in Portland to claim a playoff spot.
Their disciplinary record is borderline farcical. It remains to be seen if they can keep their cool against Portland.
Despite the San Jose’s poor form, Chris Wondolowski has scored four in his last six starts. He is the key to San Jose keeping pace with Portland in this game.
Portland has been almost as bad with no wins in their last five games.
Both teams must push for the win. However, given recent form and the high stakes involved a draw at +300 could be the best bet.
*all odds are correct at time of writing.
