MLS Betting Lines & Week 22 Preview
By Paul Seaton
Sunday 31st July
Sporting Kansas City (-125) vs. Portland Timbers (+325) 2pm ET
After last week's defeat at home to L.A. Galaxy, Portland will be looking to bounce back on the road against Sporting Kc, one of the most formidable opponents. After thrashing the Seattle Sounders 3-0 last week, Sporting are on a high and will be very difficult to stop. We think they'll win back-to-back games and like the odds of them being victorious at both whistles.
Our tip: Sporting Kansas City to be winning at HT and FT (+150)
Seattle Sounders (+190) vs. L.A. Galaxy (+240) 4pm ET
Galaxy come into this game on the back on impressive victory, with a convincing win on the road at Portland Timbers. Check out the highlights of an exciting game right here:
Sounders are on the back of two defeats (one of them to Galaxy) which led to the dismissal of manager Sigi Schmid. They are odds-on to finish rock bottom of their conference and we think Galaxy have to be backed here with Giovanni Dos Santos and Robbie Keane linking up well.
Our tip: Galaxy to win (+240)
FC Dallas (-145) vs. Vancouver Whitecaps (+370) 6pm ET
After snatching a tie against Colorado Rapids last time out, Dallas will be desperate to maintain their slender, three-point lead over their rivals. They have the perfect opportunity with this home game against Vancouver Whitecaps. We think Dallas will just do enough.
Our tip: Dallas to win 1-0 (+600)
DC United (+130) vs. Montreal Impact (+200) 6.30pm ET
Montreal Impact come into this game on the back of a stirring 5-1 victory over Philadelphia Union, a result that sent shockwaves across the Eastern Conference. The highlights from that game are below, featuring a stunning hat-trick from the former Chelsea man, Didier Drogba.
D.C. United are not in the best immediate form, having lost 4-1 at Toronto in the last game they played. With just four goals, Fabian Espinola is their top scorer, and he seems light years behind Piatti (12) and Drogba (8) in the scoring charts. Can Montreal follow up on Toronto's victory by making it a back-to-back Canadian triumph in the capitol? We think so.
Our tip: Montreal Impact to win (+200)
Chicago Fire (+195) vs. New York Red Bulls (+130) 7pm ET
There won't be many teams with as much confidence this weekend as New York Red Bulls, who trounced their neighbors New York City last weekend 4-1, to the delight of their home crowd:
Red Bulls are favorites to triumph against a poor Chicago Fire side, but while that may be the most likely result with the bookies, we prefer the greater value odds of Red Bulls' striker Bradley Wright-Phillips to score.
Our tips: Bradley Wright-Phillips to score first (+400) and at anytime (+120)
Philadelphia Union (-105) vs. Real Salt Lake (+265) 7pm ET
Union will need to be at their best to get back on track for the title, with three priceless points up for grabs at -105.
Orlando City (+130) vs. New England Revolution (+190) 7.30pm ET
While The Revs have a good shot, Orlando don't often capitulate at home. Take the tie at a juicy +245.
Toronto FC (Evens) vs. Columbus Crew (+255) 7.30pm ET
Toronto are flying, and will surely defeat Crew at Evens.
Houston Dynamo (-105) vs. San Jose Earthquakes (+285) 9pm ET
Take over 2.5 goals at +110 as this clash of entertaining teams rounds off the action.

July 4th in the USA is about fireworks, apple pie, the flag, and if you happen to be on stage at Nathan's Famous Restaurant in Brooklyn, N.Y., cramming as many hot dogs as you can down your gullet.
Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest is as much a staple of America's Independence Day as any other patriotic celebration. And let's face it, what's more American than eating too much on a holiday?
Dana White promised fireworks when UFC made its bow on Fight Island, and he has delivered on that promise.
