Philadelphia Union vs Atlanta United Predictions

1x2 Odds: Philadelphia United (+115) / Atlanta United (+220) / Draw (+265)

Total: Over 2.75 Goals (-102) vs. Under 2.75 Goals (+118)

Atlanta heads to this match after recording a win in their last game. It was a high scoring affair over DC United by a score of 3-2. Atlanta has scored 35 goals, but allowed 30 goals on the year for a +5 difference. Philadelphia is coming here after crushing Orlando in their last match. The win was by a 3-1 score and looked impressive defensively for Philadelphia. On the year Philadelphia has 31 goals scored, but has allowed 25 goals for a +6 on the year. Look for the Philadelphia team to have a better defensive effort in the match here, but with the offenses being so evenly matched this is one game that should end up on the over as both teams score quite a bit.

Pick: Over 2.75 Goals (-102)

DC United vs FC Cincinnati Predictions

1x2 Odds: DC United (-150) / FC Cincinnati (+400) / Draw (+300)

Total: Over 2.5 Goals (-121) vs. Under 2.5 Goals (+101)

DC is coming here after getting a losing by a 3-2 score to the surging Atlanta United club, but it was a game that hit the over. DC has a powerful offense with 41 goals scored, but a defense that has given up 36 goals on the year. Cincinnati is horrible on the season and in their last game ended up getting a 2-1 loss handed to them from NYCFC. When it comes to scoring Cincinnati is not that good with only 24 goals scored, but have given up 44 goals. With the horrible defense from the Cincinnati club it is going to be easy to see the DC United club getting a strong win in this game here.

Pick: DC United (-150)

Colorado Rapids vs Toronto FC Predictions

1x2 Odds: Colorado Rapids (-180) / Toronto FC (+475) / Draw (+340)

Total: Over 2.75 Goals (-125) vs. Under 2.75 Goals (+105)

Colorado is coming here after getting a tie in their last game against the Whitecaps. However, Colorado is a strong team for the wins with 12 on the year. The offense for Colorado has put in 35 goals on the year, but the defense has given up 24 goals this year and is one of the best in the MLS. Toronto managed to get a shocking 4th win on the year in their last match against Nashville by a 2-1 score. The offense for Toronto has ended up with 28 goals on the season. Now, the telling stat and what will cost the Toronto club in the match here is the fact that the Toronto FC club does not have a defense with 51 goals allowed on the season.

Pick: Colorado Rapids (-180)

Minnesota United vs Houston Dynamo Predictions

1x2 Odds: Minnesota Union (-135) / Houston Dynamo (+360) / Draw (+290)

Total: Over 2.75 Goals (-105) vs. Under 2.75 Goals (-115)

Minnesota is coming here after blanking the Los Angeles team in their last match by a 3-0 score. Now, that may sound good, but it only increased the Minnesota offense to 27 goals total, but the defense is not horrible giving up only 29 goals on the year. Houston is coming here after getting a win in their last game over FC Dallas by a score of 3-2. Now, the Houston offense has put in 31 goals which is good, but the defense has allowed 39 goals. Neither one of these teams have been a powerhouse this year, but the Minnesota defense is playing better than Houston and that will keep the Houston offense at bay and allowed the Minnesota United team to get the win here.

Pick: Minnesota United (-135)

Sporting Kansas City vs Seattle Sounders Predictions

1x2 Odds: Sporting Kansas City (+100) / Seattle Sounders (+270) / Draw (+270)

Total: Over 2.5 Goals (-125) vs. Under 2.5 Goals (+105)

Sporting Kansas City is coming here after blowing out Minnesota in their last match by a 4-0 score. This season Kansas City has put in a total of 43 goals, but the defense is the second best in the MLS giving up only 26 goals. The Seattle club comes here after getting a loss handed to them by Real Salt Lake in their last match by a score of 1-0. This year the Seattle offense has put in 36 goals on the year, but the defense has given up only 20 goals. Look for this game to be more of a defensive battle and that will lead to this game hitting the under here.

Pick: Under 2.5 Goals (+105)
