Following an exciting Sunday of MLS soccer showcased last weekend where 12 goals were scored between 8 sides in total, fans of all sides have their expectations sky high.
Last weekend New England got the better of Orlando City, thrashing the visitors with a staggering four to null. Having had a positive game day, Kamara bagged a hat-trick with goals scored in the 26th, 75th and 89th minute. Once Kamara’s ravishing performance manifested itself, teammate Bunbury carried on till the very last minute to get the fourth goal in the second minute of extra time.
DC United vs. Orlando City
After a weak performance from Orlando last weekend, they will be looking to redeem themselves against DC United, again having the disadvantage of being away from home. We’re expecting a strong opening from Canadian forward Laric, so far bagging a moderate 10 goals this season. Recovering from 4 losses out of their last 5 games paired with a miserable draw, Orlando are under serious pressure to perform against DC United this weekend. Odds are competitive but definitely shy of confident betting when looking at Orlando.
On the other hand, DC United are coming off a 3 win streak, looking to make it a 4th by burying Orlando. While DC have not been known to be the ultimate goalscorers this season, including three shy wins of 1-0 against the Colorado Rapids, Atlanta United and New England, the team as a whole have been consistent in their own unique way. We wouldn’t be surprised of coach Olsen decides to put his team in a highly defensive formation, mainly opening on the counter windows of opportunity.
DC are currently 11th in the Major League Soccer table with 28 points, exactly 3 points behind Orlando. Will Orlando stop the downfall and carve the path to redemption? We are calling it a 1-1 draw in this instance, seeing as it’s highly unlikely to see more than 2 goals from both sides combined.
Atlanta United vs. FC Dallas
Atlanta United are finishing the weekend of action by welcoming FC Dallas in their home stadium of the legendary Bobby Dodd. With an impressive capacity of just over 55,000 fans, the home crew are in for a treat. Atlanta United have had an average record in their past 5 games, bagging 1 win, 1 loss and 3 draws. Sure there are improvements to make, but the team still have a chance to finish the season on a consistent note with a current 6th place with 36 points.
Playing catch up with the New York Red Bulls, we feel that the best way to there is enough motivation for the home side to pull a 2-1 win out of the bag and close the gap. We believe Martinez or Villalba have a great chance of opening with a competent goal, both currently on 9 and 10 goals this season respectively. Odds for a sneaky coin bet of this sort would show promising returns alongside a 2-1 end result stake.
