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 19 of MLS.

Expect goals on both sides when Miami take on Minnesota

Inter Miami continued their struggle for consistency when they lost 2-0 against Atlanta United last weekend.

On Sunday, they must face Minnesota, who come into the game on the back of their 2-1 loss against New England.

Despite their decent goalscoring stats in recent weeks, Minnesota have failed to climb higher than 11th place on the Western Conference’s table.

We expect them to find the back of the net again this weekend. However, their poor defensive form will most likely provide enough chances for the hosts to score too.

Don’t expect goals when Portland host Colorado

Portland have failed to win any of their last four league games, struggling with defensive stability. 

A 1-1 draw against LA Galaxy last weekend showed significant signs of improvement in Portland’s backline. We expect the Timbers to build on that performance when they meet Colorado on Sunday.

All you need in a VPN — and more

The guests drew 1-1 against New York City last week, failing to win for the second game in a row. We expect them to push for a victory in the upcoming match.

However, Portland’s improved defensive form and Colorado’s goalscoring struggles suggest we won’t see many goals when the two sides meet.

Goals likely when Seattle meet Kansas

Seattle drew 1-1 against LA FC after their brilliant victories over Charlotte and Vancouver in MLS. 

This weekend, they must face Sporting Kansas, who defeated Nashville 2-1 on Monday. 

Having scored in all but one of their last seven games across all competitions, Kansas will most likely find enough chances to score against Seattle.

However, Seattle’s overall form and their in-form attacking line convince us they will also push to outscore their opponents in the upcoming match.
