MLS Odds & MLS Predictions Today, September 30:


Following on from two midweek MLS games and the US Open Cup final, we’re back with more MLS picks and the MLS best best bets from the best online betting sites.

Lionel Messi and co. will be aiming to move on from their Open Cup final defeat to Houston Dynamo, and the legendary Argentine is now +460 to score first against New York City with FanDuel.

St. Louis City is also aiming to stay second in the Supporters’ Shield standings by defeating Sporting Kansas City in its attempts to redeem itself from a loss to Kansas earlier this month - St. Louis is +275 to win and both teams to score.

We have just four more matchdays left in MLS for most teams, so take a look at all our MLS predictions today as we approach the end of the regular season.

Toronto vs. Cincinnati Predictions, Odds & Tips 

⭐ MLS Best Bets #1: Cincinnati to beat Toronto 2-1, 3-1 or 4-1 (+410) at DratKings



We start our MLS predictions today with the Supporters’ Shield leaders, Cincinnati, as it heads to Toronto to all but secure the Supporters’ Shield title. In fact, with it nine points above St. Louis - who has just three games left - it could practically wrap up the league title this weekend, especially if Orlando City doesn't win its game.

Once again, the MLS odds do favor a win for Cincinnati and given what is at stake in this one, we can’t help but feel another convincing victory is in store for it. On the other hand, with just two shutouts in the past seven games, we feel Toronto could get a goal.

However, Toronto has let in 48 goals in the Eastern Conference and lost 16 times too - both of these records are the worst in the Eastern Conference in 2023. Luciano Acosta was also recently named the Player of the Matchday last weekend, as he moved to 15 goals and nine assists for the season.

Suggested MLS Picks:

Inter Miami vs. New York City Predictions, Odds & Tips

⭐MLS Best Bets #2: Messi to score first against New York City (+460) at FanDuel 


Against the odds, Lionel Messi saw his US Open Cup crown disappear at the hands of Houston Dynamo thanks to a 2-1 loss. 

What's more, this game has now become even more crucial based off of that loss, as Miami is now staring in the face of no US Open Cup trophy and no spot in the playoffs with just a few games left.

Currently, Miami is trailing New York by five points, with the latter sitting in the final series playoff position of ninth. 

Messi has also helped guide his side to wins over Los Angeles FC, Sporting Kansas City and Toronto in September, where Miami has scored a combined 10 goals.

The Argentine will no doubt fancy his chances at getting his ninth Miami goal, as New York has won just eight games this season.

Suggested MLS Picks:

St. Louis City vs. Kansas City Predictions, Odds & Tips

MLS Best Bets #3:  St. Louis to beat Kansas and BTTS (+275) at Caesars 


With just three games left to play in St. Louis City's inaugural MLS year, it is staring in the face of winning the Western Conference title. St. Louis would become the first team in Western Conference history to win the title in its first year, and it can secure the trophy this weekend, should Seattle Sounders and LAFC lose and it wins.

In fact, with an eight-point gap on LAFC and Seattle, the league leaders can afford to lose the next two games and still go on and win the title.

However, despite a 2-1 win at Minnesota United last weekend, St. Louis is in a bit of a rut right now, winning just three of its eight games since the Leagues Cup. One of those games saw it lose at Kansas, but with a potential league title triumph on the line here, we think St Louis redeems itself.

Moreover, despite a win that day, Kansas has still lost 13 games and let in 44 goals and is still 15 points behind St. Louis.

Suggested MLS Picks:

New England vs. Charlotte Predictions, Odds & Tips

⭐ MLS Best Bets #4: New England 3-0 Charlotte (+1500) at BetMGM 


There are five games left to play for the 2021 Eastern Conference winners, New England Revolution, and it now sits with the chance to all but secure a spot in the top seven playoffs spots if it can defeat the struggling Charlotte.

Our MLS picks heads for a convincing win for the home team in this one, as New England has scored 49 goals while Charlotte has let in 48. 

Worse yet for the away team, it lost 3-0 to Cincinnati last time out and now heads into this game without a win in its past five matches.

Suggested MLS Picks:

Houston Dynamo vs. Dallas Predictions, Odds & Tips

⭐ MLS Best Bets #5: Houston to beat Dallas 1-0, 2-0 or 3-0 (+250) at bet365 


We conclude our MLS predictions today with another all-Texas affair that sees Houston Dynamo head into this battle in the Lone Star State just days on from winning the US Open Cup against the odds.

Griffin Dorsey scored the opening goal that day for Houston, as Amine Bassi netted a penalty nine minutes later. Better yet, the Dynamo now head into this game in fourth, the Open Cup in the bag, and with the chance to move into second, should LAFC and Seattle lose.

As for Dallas, it is only three points adrift of Houston in the table, but given how the latter has lost just two of its 15 home games, we can’t choose Dallas to win in our MLS picks.
