MLS Betting: A Trio of Value Plays for Wednesday Night

Jul 25, 2018 3:05 PM EDT
  • There are just three MLS matches on Wednesday night but plenty of betting value on the board.
  • The Red Bulls, Dynamo and Earthquakes are getting the majority of bets in their respective games.

Wednesday night’s MLS action features just one playoff team (New York Red Bulls) but there’s plenty at stake as teams jockey for position in the race for the postseason.

  • D.C. United vs. New York Red Bulls (8 p.m. ET)
  • Houston Dynamo vs. Philadelphia Union (9 p.m. ET)
  • San Jose Earthquakes vs. Seattle Sounders FC (10:30 p.m. ET)

After analyzing the betting market for each match, I’ve picked out three value plays, all risking one unit apiece.

Season Record: 33-39-2, +15.98 units, 22% ROI

New York Red Bulls at D.C. United

Moneyline odds:  NY Red Bulls +133, D.C. United +190, Draw +296
Total: 3 (o-113)
Time: 9 p.m. ET

The New York Red Bulls have won five of six games and have been stingy defensively, conceding just four goals over that span. They’ve got a positive goal differential on the road and haven’t had to travel very far the last few weeks.

D.C. United will have to take advantage of their new home field where they’ll play 14 of the last 18 games of the season. They’ve been on recent trips to Los Angeles and Atlanta but will finally get to settle in at home for two consecutive matches.
