The Major League Soccer season opens this weekend with 5 MLS matches on Saturday, March 10th. We have odds for 4 of them! The only game that we don’t have odds for yet is between expansion team the Montreal Impact and the Vancouver Whitecaps. Since this is the Impact’s first match ever, it looks like the sportsbooks are having trouble handicapping this game.
The first game on Saturday is between the Colorado Rapids and Columbus Crew. The Rapids are at home, and they’re favored in the this match. Last year these teams played twice. Colorado won the first game 4-1 at home, and lost the next one 0-2 in Columbus.
|6:00p||Colorado Rapids||Pick (-185)||+110||2½|
|Columbus Crew||Pick (+145)||+225|
The 7:30pm EST game is between DC United and Sporting Kansas City. The United are home and are slight favorites in this game. These teams met twice last year and Sporting KC won both matches 1-0. This game should be close, and the under could make for a good bet.
|7:30p||DC United||Pick (-130)||+135||2½|
|Sporting Kansas City||Pick (EVEN)||+175|
The best game of the day is definitely between the Los Angeles Galaxy and Real Salt Lake. This is rematch of the Western conference finals where the Galaxy won 3-1 before going on to win the MLS Cup a few weeks later. These were two of the best teams in their conference last year, and they met twice during the regular season. In the first match Real Salt Lake won 4-1 at home. The Galaxy won the next match 2-1 in California.
|11:30p||Los Angeles Galaxy||-½ (-110)||-110||2½|
|Real Salt Lake||+½ (-120)||+290|
The second 11:30 EST games in between the San Jose Earthquakes and the New England Revolution. The Revolution was one of the worst teams in the league last year. San Jose won both times these two teams faced each.
|11:30p||San Jose Earthquakes||-½ (-110)||-110||2½|
|New England Revolution||+½ (-120)||+290|
Good luck this weekend! We hope you cash all your bets!
