The new 2021 MLS season continues this weekend with Round 3 soccer action from Saturday, May 1, to Sunday, May 2. Thanks to the previous two Rounds, Los Angeles Galaxy are now sitting on top of the Western Conference table with six points, while CF Montreal are the current leaders of the Eastern Conference with four points.
In Week 3, the current Western Conference top spot holders, Los Angeles Galaxy travel to Seattle to face the Sounders on Sunday, May 2. On the same day, Nashville SC will go head-to-head with Inter Miami for the fourth time in the history of the league.
This round provides an opportunity for the bettor to play around with parlays, picks in the over/under, or goalscorers. Here are some sports betting predictions to consider when placing a bet on these MLS matchups.
Seattle Sounders vs Los Angeles Galaxy betting picks (Sunday, May 2)
Seattle Sounders already faced one Los Angeles club in the previous round, but they will have to come against the second LA side in Week 3. The Sounders drew 1-1 with LAFC, and now have a record of one win, and a draw in the 2021 MLS season. Meanwhile, the Galaxy can boast of a perfect two out of two recond so far, thanks to triumphs over Inter Miami and New York Red Bulls. It is Chicharito who has been on fire so far, scoring five out of LA Galaxy's six goals so far. Thus, if you got to pick anyone to put the ball in the back of the net in this game look no further than the Mexican star, as he is at +500 to be the first one to score.
Thanks to their perfect score so far, FanDuel have labeled Galaxy as the favorites to claim their third successive victory this term. The Los Angeles team are at -185, the Sounders are at +490, and a tie would bring a +300 payout. However, betting that the game ends in a 3-1 victory for the away side could sure be a thrilling bet, at +3600, a $100 bet could earn the bettor $3,600.
Nashville SC vs Inter Miami betting picks (Sunday, May 2)
David Beckham's franchise still needs a lot of work, as Miami are hoping that they will snatch their first win over their Sunday's opponent, Nashville SC. In their three head-to-head games, the Tennessee club have managed to celebrate a triumph in two of them, and the remaining one ended in a draw. All eyes will be on Gonzalo Higuain who has scored in each of the previous two MLS fixtures. The Argentine striker is at +700 to be the first one to net a goal.
However, Inter Miami are +290 underdogs, while the home side Nashville SC are the ones FanDuel consider the firm favorite in this clash, with odds of -120. A correct score of 2-1 win for Nashville is paying out +750.
Parlays for these two matchups of MLS Week 3
A solid parlay bet could be the following: Los Angeles Galaxy to beat Seattle Sounders with a final result of 3-1; Chicharito to be the one to score first in the game; the Nashville SC vs Inter Miami matchup to end in 2-1 win for the home side, and Gonzalo Higuain to score the first goal in the clash. At $50, the bettor could win up to $2,320.
