MLS Betting: The 3 Best Games To Bet On This Week



The Major League Soccer schedule rolls on this weekend with a number of high-profile matches, starting to Montreal visiting Los Angeles, while Seattle travels to San Jose. Finally, Toronto FC hosts New England in a big Eastern Conference clash. Let’s take a look at the matchups and betting lines:

Montreal Impact at Los Angeles Galaxy – Saturday, 10:30 PM ET

The Impact got a hat trick from Didier Drogba on his debut in a 4-3 victory, and now Montreal sits in sixth place, six points behind TFC. However, they're heading on the road, where they have seven losses so far while the West-leading Galaxy paces MLS with 11 home wins, and they're coming off a 1-0 loss at San Jose. In their last four home games, Los Angeles has won all four, scoring 18 goals and allowing three. Robbie Keane is fourth in the league with 15 goals, while the Galaxy's +16 is first in goal differential.

Los Angeles has two draws and a win in three meetings with Montreal, who lost in their lone trip to California.

Seattle Sounders at San Jose Earthquakes – Saturday, 10:30 PM ET

The Sounders are fourth in the West after a 2-1 win at home, their second in a row, which was their 10th of the season; however, their nine losses at home is tied with Real Salt Lake for the most in the league. San Jose is seventh in the West after a 2-1 loss at home to Philadelphia, which snapped a four-game winning streak, and they now have a win and a loss in their first half of a four-game run on their own pitch. Chris Wondolowski continues to bang in the goals with 13 on the season, tied for fifth in MLS as he tries to stay in the picture for the American national team.

San Jose has had Seattle's number recently, posting three wins and two draws in their last five, including two wins and a draw in Seattle.

New England Revolution at Toronto FC – Sunday, 5:00 PM ET

The Revolution romped to a 3-0 win at home over Orlando SC to sit in fourth in the East, and they've now won four and drawn two in their last six games overall. Charlie Davies leads a balanced squad with nine goals, and they haven't allowed a goal in four matches since a 3-1 win over Toronto, whose loss in Seattle was their eighth on the road, but they're returning home where they have seven wins. The fifth-place club are without Sebastian Giovinco, whose 17 goals is second in the league, but he had an injury that didn't allow him to go with the Italian national team, so his status is up in the air. At this point in the season, Giovinco has added ten assists for his 17 goals, he has to be the MVP of the league, but TFC might depend on him too heavily.

New England have won four and drawn two of their last six meetings with Toronto, who haven't beaten the Revolution at home since April 2013.
