Ace Football presents detailed betting tips on the upcoming MLS games of the week.

As we prepare for another matchday of the Major League Soccer campaign, our experts take a look at the bookmakers’ predictions for the upcoming games.

Let’s check out three betting tips for Matchday 22 of MLS.

Back Nashville to beat Seattle on home soil

Nashville continued their run of two winless games after suffering a 4-1 defeat against Charlotte last weekend.

However, we expect them to return to winning ways when they meet Seattle Sounders on Thursday. Despite their poor defensive form, Nashville’s goalscoring stats have remained consistent in recent weeks. 

This will most likely be enough for the hosts to beat Seattle, who have struggled for defensive form themselves. 

On the other hand, Seattle’s attacking numbers are not good enough to promise they can avoid being outscored in the coming game.

Expect goals on both sides when Colorado take on Orlando City

Colorado haven’t won any of their last five games, remaining 12th on the Western Conference table.

However, their improved attacking form convinces us they will find the back of the net against Orlando’s backline.

Colorado have scored in all but one of their last nine matches, while Orlando made their first clean sheet since May 14 last weekend.

Despite their defensive struggles, however, Orlando’s attacking style of play has resulted in impressive attacking stats. 

We expect both sides to outscore each other when they meet on Thursday. 

Back Real Salt Lake to surprise Atlanta United 

Atlanta United have been unable to win any of their last four matches, losing three league games in the process.

This week, they must host Real Salt Lake, who come into the game on the back of a 2-2 draw on Sunday.

We expect the hosts to push for a victory in the coming game. However, their poor defensive form convinces us that Atlanta might have a chance to surprise them.

Real Salt Lake have scored five goals in their last two matches, showing clear signs of attacking improvement. Given the lucrative odds for their victory, we believe it’s worth a try to back them in their quest to beat Atlanta United this week.
