LA Galaxy 7/5 to beat San Jose Earthquakes in Sunday’s MLS battle
Market: LA Galaxy win
Odds: 7/5 @ 888sport
Two sides who find themselves battling it out at opposite ends of the Western Conference standings, LA Galaxy will make the trip to San Jose in the early hours of Sunday.
Starting with the hosts, last seen putting in another toothless display, San Jose find themselves in the midst of what has become another nightmare run of form. In their 16 MLS matchups so far this season, they have recorded just three wins, six draws and seven defeats, scoring 25 and conceding 34 in return. Managing to muster a points tally of 15 and opening this weekend’s fixtures sat rock-bottom of the Western Conference, the Earthquakes also hold the worst-defensive tally in the division. As for their recent run of results, last seen getting hit with a 2-0 loss away at Real Salt Lake, San Jose are in the midst of a five-match winless run. Likewise, it should also be highlighted, the Western Conference strugglers have drawn a blank in three of their last four contests across all formats.
As for the visitors, crashing out of the US Open Cup earlier in the week, LA Galaxy will be desperate to find an immediate response here. In their 15 MLS matchups so far this season, they have recorded seven wins, three draws and five defeats, scoring 18 and conceding 16 in return. Managing to muster a points tally of 24, the Whites open this weekend’s fixtures sat fifth in the Western Conference and holding a four-point buffer from dropping out of the Final Series spots. As for their recent run of results, despite being last seen on MLS duties having to settle for a 1-1 draw at home against the Portland Timbers, LA Galaxy have lost just one of their previous six matchups across all formats. Likewise, also losing just one of their last six fixtures on the road, we’re backing an away win here at very attractive odds.
