Ace Football presents three 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 31 of MLS.
Goals likely on both sides when Inter Miami host Sporting KC
Inter Miami will have to play their next MLS game without Lionel Messi in their squad. The Argentine icon has joined Argentina for two World Cup qualifiers as Inter Miami prepare to take on Sporting KC.
We expect Inter Miami’s attacking line to find the back of the net despite Messi’s absence. However, Sporting KC’s recent attacking displays in away games suggest they also have a good chance of scoring in the upcoming game.
Back Minnesota to beat New England
Minnesota come into their next game on the back of a 1-1 draw against San Jose. On Saturday, they will take on New England, who drew 2-2 with Austin last weekend.
Minnesota’s impressive attacking form suggests they will find enough chances against the visitors. On the other hand, New England’s attacking struggles in away games convince us that they won’t be able to prevent the hosts from outscoring them.
Expect goal when Portland take on LAFC
Portland have struggled for defensive consistency in recent weeks, conceding 11 goals in their last four matches. This weekend, they will meet LAFC, who come into the game after a 3-1 defeat against Inter Miami.
Given the two sides’ in-form attacking lines, we expect both teams to take an attacking approach to the game. LAFC might be the favourites on the paper, but Portland’s recent home displays suggest they will also have a good chance of scoring in the upcoming match.
