In this post betting tips and previews of the 19th gameweek MLS matches scheduled on Sunday 12th July.
ORLANDO CITY - DALLAS
Both teams occupy the playoffs zone in the league table.
Orlando is 2nd along with Columbus Crew and New England Revolution.
Their good results depend by the great shape of their leader Kaka who has scored 8 goals in the last 6 matches.
He will be missing in the next match because he received a red card on last week vs Real Salt Lake.
Two more players will not be available because of the Gold Cup (the forwarder Cyle Larin and the midfielder Darwin Ceren.
Dallas has collected 2 wins in a row but can't count on its forwarders Akindele and Perez also busy with the Gold Cup.
PHILADELPHIA UNION - PORTLAND
Portland has the best shape of the whole MLS lately: 6 wins in the last 7 matches and for the next game has only Alvas Powell unavailable because of the Gold Cup.
Philadelphia has never won vs Portland in the previous 5 clashes.
Portland's higher tactical solidity should be decisive vs Philadelphia which has conceded 11 goals in the last 6 appearances.
PORTLAND DOUBLE CHANCE (1.44, 10Bet)
CHICAGO FIRE - SEATTLE SOUNDERS
The last team of Eastern COnference vs the first of the Western Conference.
Chicago has had hard times in the last period having collected only 1 point in the last 5 matches.
Seattle instead has kept the 1st position although the 3 losses in a row. Seattle has a bad away trend (4 losses in the last 5 away games) and the absences of Dempsey, Evans and Pappa (Gold Cup) are heavy.
We do not expect lots of goals here.
UNDER 2.5 (1.70, Sporting Bet)
DRAW (3.35, Sporting Bet)
New York Red Bulls have a great occasion to get a win vs New England Revolution which has lost 5 of the last 6 matches and when playing away are really weak (5 losses in the last 5 away matches)
and have conceded at least 2 goals in the last 6 away appearances.
Colorado should have the best vs Real Salt Lake which has 4 players unavailable because of the Gold Cup.
Also New York City is the favourite vs Toronto because away team has too many important absences (above all Bradley, Altidore and Morgan) and considering that home team has won 4 of the last 5 matches we expect another win fot the home team.
