Money line (ML)
LAFC (-275) will cost you more than two and a half times your potential return, and that's just too risky for a team with just one victory across its past seven matches. Big money line wagers like that are a losing strategy over the long haul.
Instead, I prefer LAFC TO WIN AND BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE (+150) as a much better value.
UNDER 3.5 (-155) is the play here. LAFC generally has some of the highest totals on the board, but its offense has cooled significantly. Los Angeles is averaging just 1.0 goals per game across its past seven outings and has been much better defensively with just 4 goals allowed across its last three matches.
For FC Dallas, it has scored just 4 goals in its previous five matches, including a 1-1 draw against Minnesota United FC Saturday.
