San Jose Earthquakes/Atlanta United Draw +314

The Five Stripes won a second straight game, a 2-0 win over the Crew on Saturday, to snap a three-road game skid. Hector Villalba scored two goals in a single game for the second time in his MLS career though he had to be relieved from the field a couple of minutes after his second goal – on which he was assisted by goalie Alec Kann.

The Quakes extended their undefeated streak to three games with a 2-1 win over the Galaxy on Saturday. Chris Wondolowski and Shea Salinas scored to help SJ come from behind, including the game-winning goal in the 93rd minute of gameplay. Goalkeeper David Bingham had two saves followed by an assist.

FC Dallas vs. D.C. United soccer betting preview
Time: 8:30 PM
Venue: Toyota Stadium

Odds for fans who bet on soccer:

D.C. United +1½ (-146) 2½ (-137) +746
FC Dallas -1½ (+131) 2½ (+122) -241
D.C. United/FC Dallas Draw +399

Los Toros Quakes extended their undefeated streak to three games with a 3-1 win over Toronto FC on Saturday. Roland Lamah responded to the criticism he has been facing lately with a brace, while Maxi Urruti scored his 10th goal of the season, improving on his nine-goal 2016 season.

The Black and Red lost a second straight game, a 0-2 loss to the Impact on Saturday which marked the second shutout Montreal has inflicted on DC, as well as the 12th time this season United has failed to score. DC is 1-4-1 in the last six games with two goals for and eight against. Luciano Acosta is the team’s sole scoring threat – he has one third of United’s 12 goals to his name – but he simply can’t do everything by his lonesome.

Colorado Rapids vs. Seattle Sounders FC soccer betting preview
Time: 9:00 PM
Venue: Dick’s Sporting Goods Park

Odds for fans who bet on soccer:

Seattle Sounders PK (+110) 2½ (+112) +200
Colorado Rapids PK (-125) 2½ (-127) +156
Seattle Sounders/Colorado Rapids Draw +233

The Sounders extended their winless streak to three games with a 2-2 draw against the Timbers on June 25th. Seattle lost Brad Evans to a red card in the 44th minute for a foul inside the box that resulted in Portland’s game tying penalty. In the end the Sounds had to come from behind with a man short to salvage a road point, thanks to Clint Dempsey’s goal in the 4th minute of injury time.

The Rapids bounced back from two straight losses with a 3-1 win over the Dynamo on Saturday. Marlon Hairston scored a brace, including the go-ahead goal, while Kevin Doyle scored the opener.
