We take a look at this week's MLS fixtures compiling our best bets into an accumulator.
We've picked two 5/1 MLS winners in our last two bets, we're back with a 6/1 acca at Stan James this weekend!
New York City v Chicago Fire - MLS - Saturday 19:00
We're backing Both Teams To Score in the first leg of our 6/1 MLS acca at Sky Bet on Saturday evening. For the second game in a row, New York City face a tough home fixture against another top 2 side as they take on Chicago Fire. New York City held their own in their 2-2 draw against Toronto on Thursday but were incredibly close to taking three points until Victor Vazquez netted a last-minute equaliser.
Chicago Fire were also involved in a 2-2 draw away at Portland Timbers as they battle it out for top spot with Toronto but have a game in hand. Much like Thursday, we can't pick a win between these two sides battle it out at the top of the table. Instead, BTTS looks the best bet. New York City have kept just one clean sheet in their last 10 home games but haven't failed to score at home this season. Chicago Fire have failed to score in just one of their last seven away games but have kept just two clean sheets on the road this season.
Toronto FC v Colorado Rapids - MLS - Sunday 00:00
We're backing Toronto FC in the second leg of our MLS accumulator as they look to continue their superb home form and stay top of the Eastern Conference. Toronto are unbeaten at BMO Field this season, after drawing their opening two home games, Toronto have won their last seven at home conceding just three goals.
Colorado Rapids are the worst away side across the Western Conference and Eastern Conference this season, losing all seven of their away games and have netted just two goals. With this in mind, Toronto on the handicap market looks the best bet here. Four of Toronto's seven home wins has seen the -1 handicap land with Greg Vanney's men winning their last three games netting nine goals without conceding. Toronto -1 takes our pick.
New England Revolution v LA Galaxy - MLS - Sunday 00:30
Goals look the best bet as New England Revolution take on LA Galaxy early on Sunday morning. New England Revolution and LA Galaxy have both lost their last four games in a row, we can't pick a full-time result winner between these two sides but over 2.5 goals look to be the best bet.
Eight of New England's last nine games has seen over 2.5 goals land despite their frustrating run of form. After going eight games unbeaten, LA Galaxy have now lost their last four games in a row. Despite their recent poor run of form, over 2.5 goals has landed in five of their last six games while eight of their nine away games have featured over 2.5 goals this season.
Seattle Sounders v San Jose Earthquakes - MLS - Monday 03:30
Like Thursday's winner, we're hoping Seattle Sounders can once again round off our 6/1 MLS accumulator at home to San Jose Earthquakes on Monday morning. Seattle Sounders just about got the job done on Thursday as they beat DC United 4-3 despite going 2-0 down and finished the game with 10 men.
Four goals in 27 minutes in the second half saw Seattle Sounders win the game and we're hoping they can beat San Jose in the fourth leg of our acca. San Jose Earthquakes are just one point behind Seattle in the Western Conference but most of their wins have come at home - on the road, they've struggled to pick up victories. San Jose have lost their last three on the road and have lost seven of their 10 away games this season. Seattle are unbeaten in their last five at home, winning four. We're backing Seattle Sounders to take three points.
