10* on LAFC

The MLS season was just two weeks old when lockdown happened. Now the league is back with an interesting format that is similar to the World Cup. The 25-team league has been broken down into six four-team groups (FC Dallas not competing) with the top two from each (as well as the next four highest ranked teams) advancing to the knockout stage in what is being called the “MLS is Back” Tournament.The entire event takes place in Orlando. It’s round robin play within each group and here we’ve got a Group F matchup between LAFC and the Houston Dynamo. LAFC had a win and a draw to its credit prior to the lockdown while Houston had a draw and a loss. LAFC is considered the favorite to win this entire tournament even with star Carlos Vela staying home to be with his pregnant wife. They are coming off a record-setting 2019 in which they won the MLS’ “Supporters Shield” with 72 points. Now it's about redemption after last year’s playoff failure. We like them to open group play with a ‘W’ as Houston simply lacks the talent to compete with the top teams in MLS. The Dynamo have missed the playoffs in six of the last seven MLS seasons and are simply overmatched in this one. While it was four months ago, a 4-0 loss to Sporting KC in their last match was an ugly sign. 10* on LAFC.

FAQs

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
