There are four Major League Soccer games to bet on this Sunday, April 24. With the defending MLS Cup champion (New York City) and current Western Conference leader (LAFC) in action, there are some exciting matchups on the schedule.
Today, I will be taking you through my MLS predictions and picks for Sunday. If you’re planning to wager on Major League Soccer this weekend, my MLS betting tips should give you a head start.
MLS Odds for Sunday, April 24
Let’s kick things off by checking out the Major League Soccer odds for Sunday’s games. I have taken these prices from BetOnline, which is one of the best sportsbooks for MLS odds.
- Inter Miami (+160) vs. Atlanta United (+170)
- Orlando City (+140) vs. New York Red Bulls (+215)
- FC Cincinnati (+250) vs. Los Angeles FC (+100)
- New York City (-280) vs. Toronto FC (+815)
At first glance, New York City is the safe bet here. The defending MLS Cup champions are heavily favored to beat Toronto, while Inter Miami and Orlando are also favored to win on home soil.
LAFC is the only away favorite on Sunday. The Californians find themselves atop the Western Conference after losing just one of their opening seven games.
MLS Predictions for Sunday, April 24
It’s time to dive into my Major League Soccer predictions for Sunday, April 24. Once my predictions are done and dusted, I will go over the best MLS picks for Sunday’s games.
Inter Miami vs. Atlanta United Prediction
Inter Miami kicked off the campaign with a five-game winless run, recording one draw and four losses along the way. However, they head into Sunday’s clash against Atlanta on the back of two straight victories.
Thanks to a run of two losses in seven outings, Atlanta sits fourth in the Eastern Conference – four points clear of thirteenth-place Inter Miami. That said, Gonzalo Pineda’s men have managed to win just one of their past four MLS games.
Orlando City vs. New York Red Bulls Prediction
Second-place Orlando City and third-place RBNY are separated by three points in the Eastern Conference. It is worth noting, however, that New York has a game in hand over Orlando.
The Lions are coming off back-to-back shutout victories, having dispatched Chicago Fire (1-0) and Columbus Crew (2-0). That means they have won three of their previous five MLS encounters.
On the flip side, the Red Bulls have only won one of their last five league outings. To make matters worse for Gerhard Struber’s boys, they have managed to score just three goals across their past five matches.
FC Cincinnati vs. Los Angeles FC Prediction
It appears to be business as usual for FC Cincinnati in 2022. Unfortunately, Cincinnati’s usual business is not good.
By contrast, LAFC is two points clear atop the Western Conference. Having registered five wins, one draw, and one loss, Steve Cherundolo’s men are the early leaders in the race for the Supporters’ Shield.
New York City vs. Toronto FC Prediction
This matchup brings together two sides that have experienced indifferent starts to the 2022 campaign. Tenth-place New York City trails fifth-place Toronto by four points in the East, also NYCFC has a game in hand on TFC.
The reigning MLS Cup champs have managed to win just two of their six league games this year. That said, they thrashed Real Salt Lake 6-0 last weekend – thanks largely to four goals from Valentin Castellanos.
Meanwhile, the Reds failed to win any of their opening three games before turning things around. TFC heads into Sunday’s showdown on a four-game unbeaten streak, having picked up three wins and one draw since their last loss.
Top MLS Picks for Sunday, April 24
Here are my Major League Soccer picks for Sunday, April 24. Having scoured the top MLS betting sites, I believe these are the best bets for Sunday’s clashes.
I expect both teams to score when Inter Miami hosts Atlanta. Although the Herons have netted four goals across their past two games, they still have the second-worst defensive record in the East.
Lastly, I’m backing New York City and Toronto to dish up over 2.5 goals between them. NYCFC crushed RSL 6-0 last weekend before TFC claimed a 6-0 victory over Chattanooga in the US Open Cup.
