Saturday’s MLS Acca

New England vs Chicago: Over 2.5 goals

Inter Miami to win

Orlando City to win

Toronto to win

St Louis to win

 

 

New England Revolution vs Chicago Fire (6pm GMT)

New England have won three and drawn one of their Champions League fixtures to advance to the semifinals, but they’ve lost four of four in MLS.

Chicago made a similarly poor start but goals in the 85th, 95th and 99th minute handed them a 4-3 win over Montreal last time out.

That’s the sort of chaos you see from both of these teams throughout a season, so we aren’t prepared to pick a winner, but we do fancy goals.

There have been over 3.5 goals in five of seven meetings and over 2.5 goals in seven of their eight combined MLS matches.

 

 

New York Red Bulls vs Inter Miami (6pm GMT)

Inter Miami will be without Lionel Messi on Saturday. He’s listed as doubtful after dropping out of international duty, but rumour has it he’ll miss two more games.

That isn’t as much of an issue for this match because Sergio Busquets, Jordi Alba and Luis Suarez are available.

Inter are without 12 players and the Red Bulls as many as eight, but we think the hosts have been more significantly weakened.

The hosts don’t lose many at home but top-level teams can come here and win. Looking at the odds, we don’t think the bookmakers appreciate how much better Miami will be than the rest of the league this season.

 

 

Orlando City vs Austin FC (11:30pm GMT)

Orlando are without a win through four matches while Austin have drawn three and lost one.

The issue for City is they’ve also had to play four Champions League knockout matches, meaning they’ve crammed eight games into one month.

That’s a brutal start to the season when teams aren’t at peak fitness, but they’ve had six days off and now attention turns to the league.

This looks like a perfect opportunity to get off the mark. Austin won three games away from home last season and lost nine of 17.

 

 

Toronto FC vs Atlanta United (11:30pm GMT)

Lastly, we’ll take a flyer on Toronto. Atlanta have been hit with a spate of international call-ups, including World Cup winner Thiago Almada and Giorgos Giakoumakis.

Notably, the Canadians kept three clean sheets on the spin to start the season with Lorenzo Insigne’s goals enough to earn them two 1-0 wins.

They could keep a limited Atlanta side out and with the club looking in far better shape than last season, there may be value in backing them early on.

As an aside, Matty Longstaff is expected to make his home debut.

 

 

St Louis City vs DC United (12:30am GMT Sun)

St Louis have faced some tough fixtures to start their season but they’re unbeaten in four, including a 2-0 home win against New York City.

DC United have made a stubborn start but lost their first match last time out and they rarely travel well.

They’ve won six of 25 away from DC and although they spring the odd surprise, they’ve lost most of those matches.

City scored three or more in nine of 17 home league games last season, and DC can concede in bunches.
