MLS - Weekend Preview

Updated Friday 20th July to include extra game data from the Minnesota V New England Game

This week we have a number of MLS game to look at, 11 games from Thursday through to Monday. Minnesota play at home twice, so I will be updating this article for Minnesota home game on Monday.

Once the European leagues kick off, these previews will be about the top picks across all of the leagues and why I would pick them.

For this weekend MLS I have looked at the historical fixture data from 10/03/2012 to Present and the home and away teams form from this season.

Minnesota V New England – 19/07/2018

No historical data for this fixture, so the both teams to score prediction is based on this seasons form. At home Minnesota have played 10 games and 6 have seen both teams scoring, while away from home New England have played 7 games and 5 have seen both teams scoring.

GoalRush Both Teams to Score % Chance: 64.7%

Game played - results 2-1, correct both teams to score prediction

Atlanta United V DC United – 21/07/2018

2 out of 2 games in the last 5 seasons in this fixture have ended with both teams scoring, with Atlanta having 8 games out of their 11 at home ending with both teams scoring, while impressively DC United have had 11 of their 12 away games end with both teams scoring.

DC united have lost 7 of their 11 away games, so a bet of Atlanta to win and both teams to score might be worth while

GoalRush Both Teams to Score % Chance: 84.0%

Seattle Sounders V Vancouver Whitecaps – 21/07/2018

Only 3 of the 9 games these teams have played in recent history have ended with both teams scoring, so historically not a great fixture for both teams to score.

At home Seattle have 4 out of their 8 games ending with both scoring, while Vancouver away from home have seen 7 out of 10 games with both teams scoring.

This will probably be one game I avoid betting on.

GoalRush Both Teams to Score % Chance: 51.9%

Chicago Fire V Toronto FC – 22/07/2018

Historically a great game for both teams to score, 6 out of their last 7 games in this fixture have ended with both teams scoring.

Form wise this season Chicago Fire have 8 of their 11 games ending with both teams scoring while Toronto have 7 out of their 10 away games.

Toronto have only won one fixture on the road this season, so this could be another good shout for a Chicago Fire win and both teams to score.

GoalRush Both Teams to Score % Chance: 75.0%

Columbus Crew V Orlando City – 22/07/2018

3 games from recent history and 2 of these have ended without both teams scoring.

At home this season Columbus have seen 8 of their 11 games end with both teams scoring, while 4 out of Orlando’s away games have ended with both teams scoring.

Columbus Crews home form for both teams to score, pushes this one just past the 50% mark.

GoalRush Both Teams to Score % Chance: 56.5%

Houston Dynamo V FC Dallas – 22/07/2018

Another good game historically for both teams to score, 5 of the last 6 games between them have been both teams to score.

Form wise these season, neither team are performing well in this area, 5 out of 9 games have ended with both teams scoring for Houston, while only 3 out of 8 away games have ended with both teams scoring for FC Dallas. This would be another game I am probably staying away from.

GoalRush Both Teams to Score % Chance: 56.5%

New York Red Bulls V New England – 22/07/2018

6 out of the last 8 games between these teams has ended with both teams to score, while New York Red Bulls have also won 6 of the 8. This season New York have had 4 games out of 9 end with both teams scoring, while New England have 6 of their 8 away games ending with both teams to score including Thursdays defeat to Minnesota.

I think this game has a great chance of a New York win with both teams to score.

GoalRush Both Teams to Score % Chance: 64.0%

Philadelphia Union V LA Galaxy - 22/07/2018

2 in 2 historically for this fixture, at home Philadelphia have only had 4 out of their 10 games end with both teams scoring, LA Galaxy have a better away record with 6 out of their 9 games ending with both scoring.

GoalRush Both Teams to Score % Chance: 57.1%

Portland Timbers V Montreal Impact – 22/07/2018

Like the Philadelphia game this is 2 from 2 historically but again both teams form this season makes me want to stay away from this one. 4 out of 7 for Portland at home, while Montreal’s away both teams to score record is 4 out of 11.

GoalRush Both Teams to Score % Chance: 50.0%

Real Salt Lake V Colorado Rapids – 22/07/2018

Historically this is right down the middle from their last 10, 5 have seen both teams scoring and 5 games have not.

Real Salt Lake have had 6 out of 10 home games with both teams scoring and Colorado have 3 out of 8 ending with both teams scoring. Another tough one to guess which way this one goes, and probably one I am avoiding.

GoalRush Both Teams to Score % Chance: 50.0%

Minnesota V LA FC – 23/07/2018

No historical data for this fixture, so the both teams to score prediction is based on this seasons form. At home Minnesota have played 11 games and 7 have seen both teams scoring, while away from home LA have played 10 games and 7 have seen both teams scoring.

GoalRush Both Teams to Score % Chance: 66.7%
