MLS Betting Tips: Sep 18, 2019

Graeme Written on Wednesday, September 18th, 2019

It was a profitable day in the Champions League yesterday at 0.96u profit. I’ll take it! I never have much confidence with betting on the Champions League so as long as I don’t go 0-8 I’m happy ha.

It was an okay start to the Champions League. Liverpool vs Napoli was quite a close contest. How about Erling Braut Haland? Amazing stuff. The guy is fantastic and it was cool to see him get the hat trick. He is on fire this season and the clubs will be lining upf or him.

Was very disappointed Chelsea couldn’t get the win. Things just didn’t go their way. Brutal seeing that penalty miss. I thought Fikoyo Tomori was excellent last night though and he is going to be a star.

I have tips up for the September 18th Champions League Games already. Hoping for another profitable day there.

I wanted to tackle the Europa League here but honestly I’m just not feeling it right now. Maybe after the first round of games and we can guage teams strength more. Feel free to post your Europa League tips in the comments as I’ll be backing some things regardless, and always happy to follow your bets win or lose. Honestly I just feel like there are too many games to really look at.

There’s 3 MLS games tonight. Let’s look at those:

FC Cincinnati vs Atlanta United Betting Tips:

Atlanta United are pretty much guaranteed a playoff spot at this point in the East, and look to put misery on FC Cincinnati who are bottom of the East.

This is an intriguing game to be honest. Atlanta United have lost their last two and you have to wonder if complacency is setting in. FC Cincinnati hired Ron Jans recently and while it took him 5 games, he was able to get their first win over Montreal.

I think we can see a passionate performance from Cincinnati. They had a team meeting prior to the Montreal game and I love a team meeting for clearing the air etc.

Atlanta will be looking to bounce back here against one of the weakest teams in the MLS. It won’t surprise me if they thump them, but I still think there is value betting against them here. I’d say it’s a coinflip.

Portland Timbers vs New York Red Bulls Betting Tips:

The Red Bulls are 6th in the East and in a playoff spot currently. A win here would probably cement that. Portland however are also battling for a playoff spot.

The Red Bulls have struggled a bit lately. Portland have been a weird team too though and seem to have struggled a fair bit to score. It’s quite an interesting game.

Thing with Portland though is they are just being inconsistent while the Red Bulls look like they are slumping hard with just 7 points in their last 8 games. Red Bulls looked good in the second half I felt against Seattle, but they were dire in the first half. They really need to line up with the 4-4-2 more often.

Seattle Sounders FC vs FC Dallas Betting Tips:

I was impressed with the performance from Seattle against the Red Bulls. It was a good bounce back after the Colorado game and now they host Dallas who just lost 4-0 to Chicago Fire.

Seattle are in the playoffs and this is a crucial game for Dallas as a loss makes it very difficult for them to get in the playoffs. They’re probably doing the math now and though that after this game, they can probably pick up 2 wins out of the 3 remaining. So this one is important.

Despite that, they still fail to perform on the road. I think we’re going to see 2 wins out of their remaining 4.

Europa League:
Qarabag – Sevilla
Sevilla -1 AH is just under 2.00 so it’s definitely good value i guess.. Still not sure though how this trip to far far away Azerbaijan affects these Europa League specialists …


Although it stayed goalless for like 60 minutes Sevilla still won 3:0 🙂
