Real Salt Lake at Philadelphia Union 5/19/18 - MLS Picks & Predictions

Date & Time: NaN/NaN/NaN, Invalid Date
Latest Odds: RSL +0.75 Total: 3

Two teams that have been highly inconsistent so far in the season will clash against one another on Saturday, when Philadelphia will play host to Real Salt Lake. Both teams are coming off wins over the weekend, and they will both look to find stability in a season that has been quite mediocre for both.

Philadelphia (3-5-2) are coming off a solid performance on the road against Montreal, where they recorded their third win of the season by 2-0. They took the lead at the end of the first half, and both teams played the final 30 minutes of the match with 10 men each. It was Philadelphia who eventually scored a second goal at the end of the match for the final 2-0. They had lost four of their previous five, so this was a much-needed win. However, they are sitting at the 8th spot of the Eastern Conference with 11 points, featuring the 2nd worst offense in the MLS with just 8 goals so far, against 14 conceded.
Real Salt Lake (4-5-1) had a somewhat easier job against DC United than the final 2-3 score suggests. Their opponents were left with 10 men at the 22nd minute, so Real Salt Lake took the upper hand and recorded a solid 2-3 win. They have also been really unstable, as they had lost three of their previous four. RSL are now sitting at the 6th spot of the Western Conference with 13 points, just a single point ahead of Minnesota and Houston. RSL have been pathetic on the road so far (0-4-1), where they have scored just 3 goals, against 13 conceded.

Odds Table

Real Salt Lake have dominated this match-up over the years, having never lost to Philadelphia Union (4-0-6). However, this season they have been really bad on the road, and Philadelphia have a great chance to break the spell against them. The odds on the home win are not as high as I would like, but it might be worth a shot here.
