This Weekend's MLS Betting Pick: Cincinnati FC vs Galaxy
As we near the midway point of the 2019 MLS season, we are changing things up to provide MLS betting fans with the best betting pick for the weekend action.
There is a limited slate of matches to choose from this weekend with all the exterior tournaments building momentum, so where can we find this weekend’s best bet to make? Let’s reveal the play.
This week’s tip comes in the form of a draw no bet scenario, and it involves a team that just got embarrassed in the U.S Open Cup this past Wednesday night.
Cincinnati vs. LA Galaxy - Galaxy Pk DNB at +100 with 888Sport
Cincinnati looked so bad against St. Louis in its Round of 16 U.S Open Cup match that it makes me shriek to think that they can put up a better performance against an actual MLS team. St. Louis FC, which is a USL club, managed to find a 93rd-minute goal to steal a 1-0 win from Cincinnati as hosts against the MLS team.
Cincy is in enough trouble this year as an expansion franchise, but now, with the Gold Cup taking four of its best players off the field to boot, there is reason to question the line setters’ judgement on this line.
The Galaxy has most of their team in tact for this weekend’s outing, as only Jonathan Dos Santos, Giancarlo Gonzalez and Rolf Fletscher are on international assignments.
That means Ibrah should be dressed for this contest, and he alone should settle the score in our favor with the Galaxy and the draw no bet action.
If you seek some extreme value from this game, take a look at the LA Galaxy 1st Half 1x2 line listed at +210 with SugarHouse. The Galaxy will likely grab an early first-half goal and carry it on to victory when the final whistle blows.
Los Angeles has to keep rival LAFC in sight as well, as there is already a nine-point separation between the top two teams in the Western Conference.
Meanwhile, you don’t have to look hard to find Cincinnati in the Eastern Conference standings… just look at the bottom, and expect it to stay that way!
