Punters Best Friend Major League Soccer betting stats and free betting tips

The Punters Best Friend is here again with another statistical MLS betting masterclass.

Check out below the highlighted matches we are going to cover in greater detail and our tips for each match…

TORONTO to win vs Houston Dynamo 3-0

Finally, Toronto has started to build up some momentum, they have been the MLS’s yo-yo team this year who just can’t seem to get three wins on the bounce. However, they can do just that this weekend against a struggling Houston Dynamo who got spanked 5-0 last week.

Philadelphia Union & Chicago Fire BTTS 2-1

Philadelphia lost heavily in their last game to a strong Salt Lake side who somehow managed to put 4 goals past them. They were away from home though, so I think in front of their home crowd they should do the business. They are prone to conceding however, so I think both teams to score is the best bet.

SAN JOSE EARTHQUAKES to win vs Vancouver Whitecaps 2-0

San Jose is beating some high profile teams this season, and that should be no different on this occasion against a bottom of the table Vancouver Whitecaps. San Jose currently sits in 5th position and could slingshot themselves up into 3rd if results go their way. Vancouver has lost four games back to back and conceded 14 goals in the process. They sit bottom of the table and rightfully so. I think they’ll put up a fight but I wouldn’t expect miracles.

LA Galaxy vs Los Angeles FC over 2.5 goals 2-3

Los Angeles is the favourites to lift the MLS Cup this year, they’re form this season has been second to none. They come up against Zlatan though who lives for the big stage. I think Los Angeles will get the win but the safest bet would be over 2.5 goals.

FC Cincinnati vs New England Revolution over 2.5 goals 1-3

FC Cincinnati’s season is pretty much over, they’re just playing for pride now with the home crowd I fancy them to grab a goal. New England, however, is looking to make the playoffs. So a win here could move them from 8th into 5th.

12/1 >>> BTTS and win accumulator

132/1 >>> Philadelphia Union, New England Revolution, New York Red Bulls and Los Angeles all to win

The Punters Best Friend’s MLS Betting Accumulator

Here is the Punters Best Friend accumulator for tonight’s MLS matches.

Orlando City vs Columbus Crew

Orlando city managed to pull off a shock last week by drawing 2-2 with top of the table Philadelphia union away from home.

Nani is in impressive form so far this season and I think his technical ability will be too much for a colombus crew side who have lost their last four games.

Orlando managed to beat Colombus Crew in their last meeting 2-0 away from home. So with home advantage I see them doing this business in this one.

My prediction:

Orlando city 2-0 Columbus Crew

Nani to score at any time.

Portland Timbers vs Colorado Rapids

Portland Timbers beat New York City away from home in their last outing, mind you it wasn’t a convincing win they were dominated for most of the game but still managed to hold onto a 1-0 win.

Colorado rapids aren’t in terrible form but they’re facing the Timbers at the worst possible time.

I can imagine Portland with home advantage and the confidence they picked up from their last game will be enough to see it through.

My prediction:

Portland Timbers 2-1 Colorado Rapids

Over 2.5 goals

New York Red Bulls vs New York City

Anything can happen in a derby but I think both will be hungry to score some goals so my safe bet is both teams to score.

My prediction:


Both teams to score

Real Salt Lake vs Philadelphia Union

Philadelphia somehow conceded 2 goals to a weakened Orlando side last week so being away from home I can see them conceding a goal or two.

My prediction:


Both Teams to score

Chicago Fire vs FC Cincinnati

FC Cincinnati started this season very strong but cracks started to appear and they’ve been in a decline ever since. They somehow managed to pull of a 3-2 victory over Houston Dynamo last week. But the week before that they were spanked 7-1 but Minnesota.

Chicago Fire love to entertain especially when at home so my bet is…

My prediction:

Chicago fire 3-1 FC Cincinnati

Both teams to score.

When Saturday Comes!

This weekend sees some tasty looking fixtures for our local sides and hopefully, we can navigate what at first looks like a minefield, and bash those bookies.

Man United have a huge game against Newcastle, which although many feels will be a tight affair, I see as an absolute home banker!

Rochdale face a trip to the seaside to play Blackpool, where I feel both teams will score at least a goal, maybe two!

Meanwhile, in League 2, a cash-strapped Oldham host a Carlisle side managed by former gaffer John Sheridan. The game also sees Ant Gerrard (former Latics skipper) make his return, only a few months after being dismissed by his old club. This game, I feel, will be a spicy affair with cards, goals, and corners for all.

My bet of the week therefore is:

Man U to win -2 AH (Asian Handicap)

Blackpool vs Dale over 2.5 goals

Oldham vs Carlisle over 2.5 goals

£20 on the treble pays back £255!


Be lucky guys and enjoy your day!

When Saturday Comes!

Hello and welcome to week two of ‘When Saturday comes’

Some lovely individual picks from last week landed but no actual multiples. Oldham’s 3-3 BTTS Draw at 5/1 on its own was a highlight, along with Sunderland’s BTTS Home win.

On to this week.

I think fans of our Manchester based clubs would be forgiven for thinking this week could be a tough week.

United go away to a resurgent West Ham, Bolton face a Derby side fresh from dumping the Salford outfit out the League cup. Then we have Rochdale at home to high flying Pompey, Leaky defenced Latics go away to Swindon and, Bury travel to free-scoring Colchester.

Tough games for all.

But in with just a little fortune, I believe we can turn this into cash.

All games should have early goals, so my main bet this week is a First Half Over 0.5 Goals acca.

Tip 1

West Ham v Man U4d9456be-7625-4054-a8ca-fd86fca5d52a

Bolton v Derby

Dale v Pompey

Colchester v Bury

Swindon v Latics

5 fold 1st half over 0.5 goals – 4/1


It’s worth also having a similar bet on all these games to have more than 2 goals in. So that is my second bet.

Tip 2

Over 2.5 goals acca – 25/1


If you are having a dabble this week please bet responsibly and please be lucky!!!

Good luck
