Although the major domestic leagues may not be back just yet, that doesn’t mean that we’re short of footballing action from across the globe. As the MLS begins to heat up, teams in both the Eastern and Western Conferences are looking to mount a push for the playoff positions, on that note, we have found a handful of bets that can help boost your Sunday acca.
Sunday 15th July
00:00 BST New York Red Bulls vs Sporting Kansas City
For Chris Armas’ side, after being promoted to head coach after the departure of Jesse Marsch, although his New York Red Bulls side could only slump to a 1-0 loss in the Hudson River derby last week, the hosts on Sunday still sit third in the East and will fancy their chances on closing the gap at the top. Despite losing two of their last four and being knocked out of the US Open Cup, the hosts do hold a stellar record at The Red Bull Arena. In fact, aside from a loss to Chicago Fire in April, New York have not lost any other matchup at home since January. Unsurprisingly, one man to watch is two-time Golden Boot winner Bradley Wright-Phillips, the 33-year-old has 11 for the season and is three away from scoring 100 MLS league goals. However, while we do fancy the Red Bulls to leave with all three points on Sunday, we expect Sporting KC to find the net at some point. Although the visitors are on a three-match winless run that has seen them ship eight goals, they have scored four in their last two.
Tip: Home win and both teams to score @ 9/4
00:30 New England Revolution vs LA Galaxy
Starting with former Premier League shot-stopper Brad Friedel, coming off the back of their third drawn in their last four outings, New England currently hold a five-point buffer over slipping out of the playoffs but must start collecting more than a single point if they want to shore up their position. As for LA, coming off the back of thumping Colombus Crew 4-0 last time out, The Whites have begun to climb up the table and they have former Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic to thank, the 36-year-old now has six in his last four for the Galaxy. While both sides have begun to show their form in the final third, combined both New England and Los Angeles have drawn five of their last seven and we fancy both teams to leave with a point on Sunday.
Tip: Draw @ 14/5
23:00 Los Angeles FC vs Portland Timbers
Well, although former USA national boss Bob Bradley has been without Mexican international Carlos Vela, the MLS’ latest franchise have only grown from strength to strength and a win on Sunday night could see them climb to top in the Western Conference. Scoring 41 times in their 18 MLS outings, they hold the second best-attacking stats in either conference and coming off the back of thumping Orlando City 4-1 last week, Los Angeles have now won six of their last seven. Scoring a staggering 22 goals in their last seven outings in all competitions, while Vela has been away at the World Cup, former Hull City man Adama Diomandé has been stealing the show. The 28-year-old has now scored nine in his last six for Los Angeles and has only failed to score in two of his ten appearances for The Whites. The former Premier League man will fancy his chances of carrying on his impressive record against a side who have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last three.
Tip: Adama Diomandé to score anytime @ 1/1
