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

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 18 of MLS.

Back Montreal to beat Austin

Montreal bounced back from their defeat against Real Salt Lake with a thrilling 4-3 win over Cincinnati on May 29. The Canadian side will resume their MLS campaign with a match against Austin.

Their opponents come into the game on the back of a 4-1 defeat against Pachuca, and we expect them to suffer another loss this weekend.

Austin have struggled with defensive consistency in recent weeks, conceding 11 goals in their last four matches. We believe Montreal’s superior firepower will outscore their opponents on Sunday.

Expect goals on both sides when Dallas take on Vancouver

Dallas defeated Orlando City with a 3-1 result in their last match before the international break.

This weekend, they must face Vancouver, who suffered a 4-0 defeat against Seattle Sounders on Wednesday.

Despite failing to score in their latest outing, we believe Vancouver’s attacking consistency will provide them with enough chances to score in the upcoming match.

However, Dallas’ overall form suggests they will have the upper hand throughout the game.

Back Real Salt Lake to defeat San Jose on home soil

San Jose were held to a goalless draw in their rescheduled match against Nashville last week. 

They must face another tough opponent when they meet Real Salt Lake this weekend. Real Salt Lake, who sit third in the Western Conference table, suffered a shock defeat against Vancouver in their last game before the international break.

However, we expect them to return to winning ways by beating San Jose at home. Real Salt Lake’s attacking line have been brilliant recently, giving us enough reasons to believe they can dominate San Jose’s out-of-form defence.
