CHARLOTTE FC VS ATLANTA UNITED (Saturday, 12:00pm ET)
After suffering defeat to the hands of St.Louis last weekend, Charlotte return home to host 2018 MLS Cup winners Atalanta United.
This matchup seems to have goals written all over it, with Atlanta seeing both teams scoring in five of their last six away games in the MLS while Charlotte have conceded in five of their last seven league home games.
Charlotte have found themselves a gem of a striker in Enzo Copetti, who netted his first MLS goal last weekend, while the Five Stripes are led by former Juventus star Fernando Bernadeshi and former Celtic striker Giorgos Giakoumakis.
Both teams to score and either team to win looks great value in this matchup, particularly with the strikeforce that both franchises possess here.
TIP: Both Teams To Score No Draw (+130, DraftKings)
PHILADELPHIA UNION VS CHICAGO FIRE (Saturday, 7:30pm ET)
Phiadelphia Union return to Chester this weekend, with the Pennsylvania franchise aiming to bounce back to winning ways after being beaten by Inter Milan.
The Eastern Conference side host Chicago Fire, who kicked off their MLS campaign with a 1-1 draw against New York City.
Both teams have scored in nine of their last ten meetings at Subaru Park, so it would not be the biggest of shocks to see that run continue here.
Union should be able to get the better of Chicago, with the match result + both teams to score market holding some value in this contest.
TIP: Philadelphia Union To Win + BTTS (+175, FanDuel)
SAN JOSE EARTHQUAKES VS COLORADO RAPIDS (Saturday, 10:30pm ET)
After a fairly positive start to the season, San Jose Earthquakes could pick up their second win of the campaign when they take on Colorado Rapids.
San Jose fell victim to a late Thiago Almada brace in their opening day defeat to Atlanta, but they bounced back with a comeback victory over Vancouver last week.
Colorado do have a point on the board after their goalless draw against Sporting KC last week, but they were on the receiving end of a 4-0 drubbing from Seattle on the opening weekend.
With the injuries the Rapids have on their roster currently and with promising striker Jeremy Ebobisse being in stellar form for San Jose, the Earthquakes should pick the win here – with plenty of goals scored as well.
