The action starts at Avaya Stadium in San Jose where the Earthquakes host FC Dallas. These two Western Conference foes meet each other for the second time this season, and the first duel in Texas was finished in a goalless draw.
Interestingly, the Earthquakes haven’t recorded a tie in seven outings at home this season, winning four times in the process, while the Toros are without a draw in seven showings on the road, losing five times in that span. Five of the last ten head-to-head duels were ended in a draw, so consider taking a tie at +255 odds.
Both teams couldn’t keep their net intact in four of their last five games overall. Picking both sides to find the net is another interesting option, but -195 odds are not tempting at all.

The Eastern Conference showdown from Talen Energy Stadium in Chester, Pennsylvania, will see the New York Red Bulls going against the Philadelphia Union for the first time this season. Philadelphia is topping the East with 28 points and a 28:18 goal difference, while the Red Bulls are sitting at the 5th spot with 25:16 goal difference.
Philadelphia is a slight favorite here, but taking the side bet could be a tricky job. The U is winless in three straight outings at home, recording just one victory in its last four games overall along with two ties and a loss. The Metros are unbeaten in five straight contests, recording four wins in the process.
Both Philadelphia and New York play solid defense, and four of the last five H2H matchups had fewer than three goals in the total. While half of the U’s 16 games had three or more goals in the total, seven of the Red Bulls’ 15 contests saw fewer than three goals on the scoreboard.
It seems there’s no easy money on this one, but we suggest you take the double chance Draw or New York Red Bulls at +105 odds. If you like betting on the totals, go with the under.
The ultimate clash of the day will take place at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, Colorado, where the Rapids welcome Minnesota United. These two Western Conference rivals will take on each other for the first time this term, and the previous two H2H duels in Colorado saw more than three goals in the total.
The Rapids are playing in a good form at the moment, winning three of their last four outings along with a draw, but they recorded a clean sheet only once in 15 games this season. Colorado’s defense is the worst in the West with 34 goals allowed, while the Rapids have a 17:20 goal difference in eight showings at home.
Ten of Colorado’s 15 games overall and seven of its eight contests at home saw three or more goals in the total. On the other side, seven of Minnesota’s eight outings on the road saw three or more goals on the scoreboard. We could easily see a proper high-scoring affair, so take Over 3 Goals at -102 odds or be brave and invest on Over 3.5 Goals at +140 odds.
