MLS Picks: June 17

By Ryan Nadrajan

Philadelphia Union (6-7-1) look to keep their unbeaten home record intact tomorrow when visitors Cincinnati FC (6-1-7) head to Subaru Park. Trailing division leaders New York City FC by just one point, Philadelphia seeks to rise to the top of the Eastern Conference with a victory. Cincinnati is currently the 8th seed in the conference, one spot removed from playoff contention. Both teams last faced off in a pre-season friendly resulting in a 1-1 draw that also took place in Philadelphia.

After a very strong start to the season with 5 straight wins, Philadelphia was neutralized in the last few weeks and the squad has started piling up the draws. As for Cincinnati, after a patchy start to the campaign, the team rallied in recent weeks to string together four victories before ultimately losing their final two games before the international break with close encounters against New England Revolution and CF Montreal.

Cincinnati has improved since both teams met last but not enough to knock off Philadelphia at home. Philadelphia should have a very strong game as they are preparing to welcome New York City FC next weekend and will look to be in top form. They have never lost to Cincinnati (5-2-0) and have only conceded one goal in their last six when playing the “Orange and Blue”. They have also been a very tough side to put goals past. Currently, Philadelphia is in a tie for the league’s best goals-against with 10 in 14 games. I am siding with the Union on this one.

Pick: Philadelphia Union -175 (Sports Interaction)

Other bets to consider for this game:

Philadelphia Total Goals Over 1.5 -142 (Betway) - There is always a chance of some sloppy play after the international break and Philadelphia have the squad to pot a few goals if the opportunity presents itself.

Goals in Both Halves Either Team -129 (Betway) - Odds are very favourable at the time of writing. Should be highly considered before the line moves closer to kick-off.
