Our MLS picks stormed into the black last weekend with two winners from three bets at $3.60 and $4.91. The loser was a bet on New York City FC at home to local rivals New York Red Bulls and this match was notable for several reasons, not least that the home team got beaten 7-0.
The losing team also fielded one of the truly great midfielders the world has ever seen in Andrea Pirlo and one of Spain’s legendary forwards, David Villa. When Pirlo was subbed off at 5-0 he was replaced by one of the most successful players in English Premier League history, Frank Lampard, who was making a belated debut NYC.
Meanwhile, the star for New York Red Bulls – who scored twice and assisted another – is Bradley Wright Phillips. The same Bradley Wright Phillips who failed to make an impact at Man City and Southampton and had to drop to League 1 in England to find a level he excelled at.
We have five bets this weekend with the first kicking off in around three hours.
