4th July: Sunday’s MLS Accumulator – 14/1

With another stacked schedule from across the MLS on the cards this weekend, we have a host of noteworthy meetings for those of you looking to stick on a Sunday acca. On that note, we have found a handful of helpful tips from throughout the early hours of Sunday morning that are worth keeping an eye out for.

Sunday 4th July

BST 00:30 Orlando City vs New York Red Bulls

Starting with Sunday’s hosts, despite getting hit with a 2-1 defeat when they faced off against this weekend’s guests when heading into the international break, Orlando have only continued on a real purple patch. Last seen landing themselves a deserved victory against Inter Miami, The Lions are now in the midst of a three-match winning run and have their sights set on clinching top spot in the Eastern Conference. Still boosted by that thumping 5-0 romp against San Jose on June 23rd, they have also managed to muster a hugely impressive 15 points from their last six MLS matchups. Gaining a reputation for their free-scoring displays in the final third, Orlando also have one leading marksman who has enjoyed a stellar start to the 2021 campaign. Once again finding the net away at Phil Neville’s struggling Miami last weekend, the former Manchester United star has already racked up six MLS goals this season, including finding the net in his last three appearances on the spin. Given The Red Bulls’ rather glaring issues on the road, there is no doubt that Nani and Orlando should be confident of extending on their recent purple patch. Failing to build off of their back-to-back victories on either side of the international break, New York have collected just a single point from any of their five contests on their travels since opening the 2021 campaign. It should also be noted, Sunday’s guests have conceded over 2.5 goals in three of those five away day outings.

Tip: Orlando City win & Nani to score anytime @ 15/8

00:30 Montreal vs Inter Miami

While Montreal might have managed to open up the 2021 campaign with an action-packed 4-2 win against Toronto, Wilfried Nancy’s side have largely failed to build off of that result. Despite being last seen snatching a point off of Nashville on the road, The Blacks were largely outplayed and will know that they were lucky to have left Tennessee with something to show for their troubles. With just a single victory from their last five MLS matchups and losing their spot in the Final Series places, Montreal’s new boss will have a real headache over his side’s continued problems in the final third. Along with failing to bag themselves more than a single strike in seven of their last eight contests, it should also be highlighted that Sunday’s hosts have scored just a single goal in their last three fixtures at the Stade Saputo. On the flip side, last seen putting in another worrying display against a high-flying Orlando, Inter Miami are in the midst of a real MLS nightmare. With the pressure already firmly on Phil Neville’s shoulders, the former Manchester United defender has seen his side lose each of their last four matchups on the spin. Batting it out at the foot of the Eastern Conference, this weekend’s guests have also shown their own problems in front of goal. Bagging just a single strike in over 350 minutes of action, we could have another cagey affair on our hands this week.

Tip: Both teams to score – no @ 1/1

01:00 Minnesota United vs San Jose Earthquakes 

Putting in what was another professional display away at the Portland Timbers last weekend, it is no surprise that Minnesota are tipped as a landslide pick to clinch a Final Series spot in the Western Conference. Last seen grabbing a 1-0 win against their fellow top-seven contenders, The Loons have really managed to bounce back after a worrying start to the 2021 campaign. Despite losing each of their opening four MLS matchups and some even questioning Adrian Heath’s spot in the dugout, Sunday’s hosts are enjoying an extended six-match unbeaten run, a run that stems all the way back to May 9th. Mustering an impressive points tally of 14 on their recent purple patch, Minnesota have also continued to impress with their continued performances on home soil. Last seen at Allianz Field picking up a 2-0 win against Austin, Heath’s side have won each of their last three home games on the spin, keeping a clean sheet in each of those victories. On the flip side, despite enjoying an eye-catching start to the 2021 campaign, San Jose find themselves in the midst of a real nightmare. Last seen getting hit with a 3-1 drumming against LA Galaxy on home soil, The Earthquakes have collected just a single point from their last six MLS matchups on the spin. With Minnesota winning each of their last four straight meetings against San Jose, we’re backing a similar routine home victory here.
