San Jose Earthquake vs DC United 5/19/18: MLS Soccer Pick, Odds, and Predictions

The San Jose Earthquake have a busy schedule. They take on the Vancouver Whitecaps in Canada and travel back home to play Washington DC United at home. This is a game between two of the worst teams in the MLS and I am expecting tons of commitments since they will both want some much-needed points.

DC United have only won once this season and things are not looking good for the franchise. It has gotten to a point where making the playoffs seems unreasonable and improving the team is the main focus. This is a winnable game for the visiting side since they are playing another weak opponent. That being said, it seems like the team doesn’t know how to win and that is a big concern for the players and the management.

On the other side of the coin, San Jose will look to win at home which will get them close to midtable in the Western Conference. This has not been a good season for the Earthquake and although there is tons of talent, they need to start winning games. This is the best chance they will have of getting three points since they are taking on the worst team in the MLS and they are going to be at home. This is an opportunity I don’t think they will want to miss.

All in all, I see San Jose winning this game easily. They are the better side and at home, so it should be a comfortable victory. We are getting a pretty good price to wager on the home team winning this game and as a result, it is the bet which I am going to suggest.
