i80 Sports Toll Booth- Matchday 22 MLS Sportsbook Picks




Match- Columbus Crew host NE Revolution

Pick- Columbus Crew +110


This weekend the red-hot Columbus Crew host the struggling New England Revolution. The Crew are 4-4-0, unbeaten, in their last 8 matches. In fact, during that 8 game span, the Crew have allowed only 7 goals.


For New England, their current run of form is about to get worse. Not only are they coming off a two game losing streak and four matches without a win, but they are 0-2-5 in their last seven games in Columbus.


Key to the Match-

The key to the Crew’s season is going to be the connection between Zelarayan and Cucho Hernandez. They have been red-hot together and seem like lifelong teammates after just a few weeks together on the pitch.


While the Revolution have some star power themselves, specifically with Gustavo Bou looking like a world-beater this season, they won’t have enough firepower to get any kind of result this week. I consider +110 to be a huge discount.




Match- DC United host Montreal

Pick- Montreal +170


While the big story in Canadian soccer this weekend will be Insigne and Bernardeschi making their debut in Toronto, I will be looking at Montreal pursuing some road points this week as they head to the nation’s capital to face DC United.


After missing most of June and some of July, it looks like Djordje Mihailovic is returning to form. He played 30 minutes last week against Toronto, and Montreal needs to get him back. Djordje leads the team with 7 goals and 3 assists in his 13 appearances this season. He is easily their best player and can lead the team to a road victory this weekend.


Key to the Match-

DC United have averaged only 1.1 point per game at home this season, and they could be missing Taxi Fountas, who also didn’t travel with the team for their midweek game. With both strikers, Ola Kamara and Taxi Fountas, possibly missing this game, DC United will be short handed while facing a tough home opponent.






Match- Sporting KC host LAFC

Pick- LAFC +105


LAFC is in first place in the Western Conference with a 13-3-4 record and will be the visitors in a match against Sporting KC, in last place, with a 5-5-12 record. This lopsided match, for me, is not being given the respect it deserves. Getting better-than-even money on LAFC seems like a typographical error by the odds adjusters on your local sportsbook. This week I will be hammering this oversight.


Key to the Match-

Sporting KC has a lot of work to do in a disappointing season. They were hanging their hat too much on unduplicable wing play from Johnny Russell and Daniel Salloi and not reinforcing their center forward position.


Alan Pulido, Gadi Kinda, and Osvaldo Cisneros will all miss this match, Roger Espinoza and Kortne Ford will be suspended, and Tim Melia will be questionable. This is a recipe for disaster and a home loss this weekend.




Match- Real Salt Lake host FC Dallas

Pick- Real Salt Lake +100


Real Salt Lake is unbeaten at home this season with a 7-3-0 record, and they will host FC Dallas. Anytime I can get a home favorite at +100 I love the pick.


This is an open-shut case for me. RSL is the better team, at home, with a huge advantage, playing against a slumping Dallas team that hasn't won a game since May. I’ll take it.


Key to the Match-

Last week, also at home, RSL beat Sporting KC in a match featuring goals by Venezuelans Sergio Cordova and Jefferson Savarino. The “who” in the offense has been a question for me all season, but with Savarino scoring 3 goals and assisting 2 more in the last three games, I would look forward to his continuing success this weekend.
