MLS Best Bets Today: Away Teams Get It Done cover


Saturday has a full MLS Slate for us to bet on some soccer.

After sifting through the betting odds, we’ve found our MLS Best Bets for this weekend’s action!

We’ve got 13 games on Saturday and one on Sunday as the MLS Season starts to get closer and closer to the postseason. Teams are fighting for playoff seeding and simply trying to extend their season.

Let’s talk about Saturday’s action!

Saturday’s MLS Best Bets

MLS Best Bets Today

New England Revolution @ Montreal Impact

Matchup Information

  • Venue & Location: Stade Saputo (Montreal, Canada)
  • Date: Saturday, August 26th, 2023
  • Kick Off: 7:30pm Eastern

The Pick: New England Revolution Draw No Bet (+147) Bovada

The Revolution are in 2nd place in the Eastern Conference currently. They are 8 points out of 1st place, and 3 points ahead of Philadelphia and Orlando City.

A win here help them hold this position and gain some ground on Cincinnati.

They are 3rd in the league with a +14 goal differential and there offense is electric, even on the road.

Montreal sits in 8th place, just out of a playoff spot. They have 10 wins and 12 losses with just 2 draws this year, meaning they typically win or lose.

Tonight I think they lose and would be comfortable backing the Revolution on the ML at +235.

Philadelphia Union @ D.C. United

Matchup Information

  • Venue & Location: Audi Stadium (Washington D.C.)
  • Date: Saturday, August 26th, 2023
  • Kick Off: 7:30pm Eastern

The Pick: Philadelphia Union Draw No Bet (+118) Bovada

The Union are in the same situation as the Revolution. They are on the road against an inferior opponent, battling for playoff positioning.

They have a +13 goal differential while D.C. United posts a -3. They are 8-6-11 and can’t seem to string together a few good games.

At home tonight, I like the Union attack to overpower them and improve their chances at winning the conference.

Give me the Union at plus money to come out with a win, or we walk away with draw and a push.

NYCFC @ FC Cincinnati

Matchup Information

  • Venue & Location: TQL Stadium (Cincinnati, OH)
  • Date: Saturday, August 26th, 2023
  • Kick Off: 7:30pm Eastern

The Pick: FC Cincinnati ML (-105) Bovada

We’re betting on the Top 3 teams of the Eastern Conference to get the job done tonight, and I have faith that they will.

Cincinnati has been an animal this year posting a 15-6-3 record and a +11 goal differential.

NYC has been less than impressive, only scoring 25 goals in 25 games while allowing 32.

On the road, NYCFC is not very solid and already lost to Cincinnati 3-1 at home this season.

Tonight in Cincinnati, I think they handle business in front of their home crowd.
