Then later in the day, Cruz Azul throws down against Toluca in a Mexican Liga BBVA MX match. We handicap 3 MLS matches on Saturday. Sunday’s top soccer game pits the United States against Canada in the CONCACAF Gold Cup.

UEFA European Under-21 Championship

England vs. Spain

Spain tackles England in what should be one of this weekend’s most competitive matches. The Spanish dominated the Ukraine 5-1 in their UEFA EURO Under-21 Semifinal match.

But although Spain played great, El Rojo might struggle to beat the English. The slim chalk in this has yet to yield a goal during the tournament. England’s defense is spectacular. The attack is good as well. The English win 1-0 in regulation.

Soccer Betting Pick: England

Mexican Liga BBVA MX

Cruz Azul vs. Toluca

Mexican Liga just started their season, which is why Cruz Azul, often one of the best teams in the league, isn’t more of a favorite. If we go back to last season, Azul finished lousy, losing 3-of-4.

Cruz didn’t start this season out any better, losing their first match to Atlas via a 2-0 score. Like Cruz Azul, though, Toluca didn’t have success in their first match of the season. But Toluca didn’t lose. Instead, they drew. Still, this happens on Cruz’s pitch. The home team is the play.

Soccer Betting Pick: Cruz Azul

Major League Soccer

LA Galaxy vs. Philadelphia Union

Philadelphia Union is the chalk in this, but the Union’s form leaves much to be desired. Union shows just 2 victories in their last 5 to go along with 2 losses and a draw.

The Galaxy won their last match, a 2-1 contest versus rival LAFC. Not only that, but the Galaxy had drawn in the 4 games before beating their city rivals. Philadelphia shouldn’t be the favorite. Siding with the home team makes sense.

Soccer Betting Pick: LA Galaxy

LAFC vs. San Jose Earthquakes

The home favorite shows 2 wins and 3 losses in their last 5. What’s disturbing if you want to lay the -222 is that Los Angeles is on a 3-match losing streak.

But San Jose has lost 2-of-4 with a couple of draws. Neither team looks like a solid play in this. The draw is the best choice.

Soccer Betting Pick: Draw

Vancouver Whitecaps vs. Seattle Sounders FC

The road dog is playing well enough to attract a look. Seattle has a win, 3 draws, and a loss in their last 5.

Home squad Vancouver fell 0-3 to Sporting Kansas City in their last. Granted, like most teams, Vancouver is better at home, but Seattle offers overlay odds. The Sounders are a good soccer club and face a Vancouver side that hasn’t dominated in recent matches.

Soccer Betting Pick: Seattle Sounders FC


United States vs. Canada

Canada and the United States battled in the CONCACAF Nations League Final. The U.S. dominated, beating the Canadians 2-0 even though a couple of starters had to sit due to red cards in the semifinal win over Mexico.

After a 1-1 draw against Jamaica in their first Gold Cup match, the United States has dominated, beating Saint Kitts and Nevis and Trinidad and Tobago by 6-0 scores. The U.S. gets the win.

Soccer Betting Pick: United States
