Top Soccer Betting Picks of the Week – March 20, 2023

By Hank Blaine

UEFA Leagues are off this weekend, which is why the top soccer plays for the weekend happen in Major League Soccer. The good thing about MLS is that no team has a massive edge over any other. Among the six plays happening on Saturday, only two games, San Jose hosting Toronto and Dallas at LAFC, show a favorite at less than even money. Parity reigns in MLS. Keep reading for soccer odds, analysis, and free picks for six of this week’s top Major League Soccer matches.

Top Soccer Betting Picks of the Week (March 20, 2023)


Portland Timbers vs. LA Galaxy

The Galaxy head to Portland in much better form than the Timbers. Los Angeles has a single victory in their last 5, but the LA Galaxy have drawn in 2 straight matches, versus Sporting KC and Vancouver.

Portland has lost 4-of-5 and 3 straight. The Timbers loss to LAFC makes sense. The Los Angeles Football Club is MLS’s best team.

But falling to St. Louis SC, an MLS expansion team, is more difficult to explain. The Galaxy get the upset win.

Soccer Betting Pick: LA Galaxy

Columbus Crew vs. Atlanta United FC

Home pitch means a lot in MLS, which is why a team like Columbus is favored over Atlanta United. The home squad in this has lost 3-of-5 with a win and a draw. Columbus drew against Toronto and lost to New York Red Bulls in their last 2 games.

Atlanta is on fire. The ATL has won 3-of-4 with a draw. In their last, Atlanta beat Portland 5-1. The road team can get it done.

Soccer Betting Pick: Atlanta United FC

DC United vs. New England Revolution

Here’s another MLS match where the road team in better form is offering higher odds than the home squad. DC United has lost 2-of-3 with a draw.

New England Revolution has won 4-of-5. The Revolution’s lone loss in the last 5 came against LAFC on the road.

Perhaps, that’s a sign of what might happen in this. DC United is better than their recent form. The home team prevails.

Soccer Betting Pick: DC United

Houston Dynamo FC vs. New York City FC

On March 18, Houston ended a 2-game losing streak with a nice 2-0 victory over Austin FC. The Dynamo had fallen to Cincinnati and the New England Revolution in their two previous matches.

New York City FC is on a 2-match winning streak. But both wins came in home games. The Dynamo can keep it going with a second straight win.

Soccer Betting Pick: Houston Dynamo FC

Los Angeles FC vs. FC Dallas

LAFC had won 3 straight. In their last couple of games, the form has gone south. Or has it?

The 0-0 draw versus the Seattle Sounders on the road in the last wasn’t terrible. Also, the 2-1 loss to Alajuelense is no big deal because in the first leg of the CONCACAF Champions League aggregate, Los Angeles dominated Alajuelense 4-0. LAFC easily handles Dallas.

Soccer Betting Pick: Los Angeles FC

San Jose Earthquakes vs. Toronto FC

The odds make home team San Jose more than playable even though St. Louis City SC blasted San Jose 3-0 in the Earthquakes last. San Jose did win their previous two home games, 2-1 against Vancouver and 1-0 versus the Colorado Rapids.

Toronto FC won their last. In their previous 4, they show 2 losses and 2 draws. The Earthquakes shake their way to a win.

Soccer Betting Pick: San Jose Earthquakes
