JORDAN’S favourite league – the MLS – kicks off tonight and he’s picked out a scorer tip.
He’s aslo advising a goals bet from La Liga:
Athletic Bilbao over 1.5 Team Goals (53-50, 888sport) – 5 points
Jordan says: Members will know the MLS was very kind to me last season, but without going too mad being the first game of the season, I’m going to chance a bet from the off.
New York Red Bulls sold their best defender to Chelsea in January and will now welcome Toronto FC, and more in particular, Sebastian Giovinco who scored 22 goals in his first MLS season. I do like the look of BTTS & Over 2.5 Goals (EVS @ 365) but for the price of the golden boot winner, I think it could be an early MLS gift.
USA MLS – 6:30PM
Sebastian Giovinco (Toronto FC) Anytime (49-20, 888sport) – 1 point
Other scorers to take note of who are too good for this league.
David Villa (NYCFC) @ 8/5 @ 888 – Chicago are one of the youngest sides in the league this season and let captain and veteran centre back Jeff Larentowicz go to LA Galaxy. NYCFC could score twice and I think that is overpriced @ 17/10 @ William Hill.
Cyle Larin (Orlando City) @ 8/5 @ 888 – The number one overall pick in the MLS draft last year had a great rookie season scoring 17 goals in 27 games. RSL didn’t travel well last season and have already played this week, bowing out of the CONCACAF Champions League. Kaka also chipped in with 9 goals in 28 games and could hold value @ 21/10.
Last seasons champions Portland Timbers host my team Columbus Crew in a repeat of the final. Another one that we could see BTTS & Over 2.5 Goals (13/10 @ 365) with all three games last season seeing this market. Being drawn towards their own scoring sensation Kei Kamara who scored 22 goals in the regular season and has scored in his last two games against Portland. Like Giovinco, another possible gift @ 2/1 @ 365 for him to score again.
As I said I’m only on Giovinco and the other bets are guidelines. Nothing to certify these but I will admit I do know my MLS. Its only maybe competitive match fitness that could scupper these.
