LA Galaxy - LAFC outright
The Galaxy are the favorite at +155 but not by much as LAFC comes in at +160, the game is going to come down to who makes the least mistakes and for that LAFC has let in the least number of goals between the two sides. Both teams have seen better days so it will come down to inches.
LA Galaxy - LAFC over/under
Both teams are high scoring teams, and their defenses are what is suspect. Betting that the game will have over 2.5 goals at least is paying out -195. Don’t look for it to be a tight game as anything over 2.5 is a safe bet in this one.
