Only 4 games appear on the limited MLS slate this weekend and there are some tips with value to be found

<div><h2 dir="ltr">Toronto v Sporting KC</h2><p dir="ltr"><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/football/us/major-league-soccer/toronto-fc-vs-sporting-kansas-city-3738214/?mtid=1"><strong>Friday, June 7, BMO Field</strong></a></p><p dir="ltr">I must admit, that I actually expect some goal scoring to take place in this contest, but I don;t think it will lead to many corner kicks.</p><p dir="ltr">Toronto manager Greg Vanney made sure to start giving time to Terrence Boyd before the International break, as he will now be asked to produce some scoring chances without the benefit of Jozy Altidore. Altidore has already joined the USMNT for their Gold Cup appearance, as has Michael Bradley.</p><p dir="ltr">Sporting KC has been dealing with injuries that has left Peter Vermes with a limited roster of talent to put on the field, and it has shown in their results thus far. Sporting has 5 players expected to be out for a significant amount of time, and they certainly do not look like the squad that advanced to the Western Conference Finals last season.</p><p dir="ltr"><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=4fd3c129-b898-4816-9a61-9f7e8f34295a&amp;f=1" target="_blank" title="MLS Betting Odds"><em><strong>Best tip for the match: Total Corners Under 9.5 at 1.91 with Unibet</strong></em></a></p><h2 dir="ltr">San Jose v Dallas</h2><p dir="ltr"><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/football/us/major-league-soccer/san-jose-earthquakes-vs-fc-dallas-3738215/?mtid=1"><strong>Saturday, June 8, Avaya Stadium</strong></a></p><p dir="ltr">San Jose is certainly riding the boots of Chris Wondolowski at the moment, and we know this because he has scored all 7 goals for the Earthquakes over their last 3 outings. Wondo’s 4-goal performance helped him set the all-time MLS scoring record, and now he is the only man to have found the net 150 times in his career. It’s hard to think that he fell out of favor for newly appointed head coach .Matías Almeyda after the poor start to the campaign, almost blaming Chris for the team’s rough opening to the season, but that’s been put to sleep now.</p><p dir="ltr">Wondolowski and company certainly enjoy home-cooking while carrying their 4-match win streak at Avaya Stadium, and Dallas has allowed no less than 2 goals in 5 of their 7 away outings thus far. That combination should lead us to some goal scoring in this contest, and the fans that get to visit the largest outdoor bar in the country will sure be rooting in full-throat for the Quakes to pick up 3 points.</p><p dir="ltr"><a href="http://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=155&amp;a=6a145d2b-505f-491b-a70e-2f5f31742828&amp;f=1" target="_blank" title="MLS Betting Odds"><em><strong>Best tip for the match: Total Goals Over 3 at 2.04 with Pinnacle </strong></em></a></p><h2 dir="ltr">Philadelphia v NY Red Bulls</h2><p dir="ltr"><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/football/us/major-league-soccer/philadelphia-union-vs-ny-red-bulls-3738216/?mtid=1"><strong>Saturday, June 8, Talen Energy Stadium</strong></a></p><p dir="ltr">These two clubs are are certainly in form and playing about as well as anyone in MLS. New York had to erase their poor start to the campaign and bounce back to their current 6th place position in the Eastern Conference table with 14 points over the last 5 matches.</p><p dir="ltr">The play to make in this contest comes on the expectation of some goal scoring, as the possibility of a 2 - 2 type of contest could come to fruition on Saturday night in Philly.</p><p dir="ltr">As I expect the draw, the offer on the bet sure is user-friendly with a 3.70, but cashing a ticket on the total to topple the straight 3 comes to mind as well. Pinnacle is listing the Over 3 at 2.16, and that is a pretty fair price to, at worst, push the action should they get stuck on 2 - 1. Hey, calling a draw is no easy task and betting it with actual money takes a bit of balls, in my opinion.</p><p dir="ltr">The draw could be the call when the final whistle blows, but chase the total in this one to go Over.</p><p dir="ltr"><a href="http://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=155&amp;a=6a145d2b-505f-491b-a70e-2f5f31742828&amp;f=1" target="_blank" title="MLS Betting Odds"><strong>Best tip for the match: Total Over 3 Goals at 2.16 with Pinnacle </strong></a></p><h2 dir="ltr">Colorado v Minnesota</h2><p dir="ltr"><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/football/us/major-league-soccer/colorado-rapids-vs-minnesota-united-fc-3738217/?mtid=1"><strong>Saturday, June 8, Dick's Sporting Goods Park</strong></a></p><p dir="ltr">This bet seems like a gift from the line setters, being that we know these two defenses can be lit up at any moment of the match. Even with the veteran leadership of Tim Howard for the Rapids, Colorado has been torched for so many goals because their back line has no continuity whatsoever. A goalkeeper is really only as good as his back line in MLS, although that certainly applies in Europe or anywhere else, really.</p><p dir="ltr">In this spot with Minnesota in town, these two teams should both find the net before we hit the break, and that’s where the money is as well. Expect a 1 - 1 score at the 45’ mark and cash your tickets early, although I will admit I like this Over 3 to slide on through as well. If you don’t turn to the overall game total of 3 with an even-money priced line, which you should, grab some value with the BTTS in this last match of the weekend in MLS before the Copa America and Gold Cup tournaments get started.</p><p dir="ltr"><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=4fd3c129-b898-4816-9a61-9f7e8f34295a&amp;f=1" target="_blank" title="MLS Betting Odds"><em><strong>Best tip for the match: Both Teams To Score in 1st Half (Yes) at 2.65 with Unibet</strong></em></a></p></div>
