Very surprised to see Columbus favored by a half a goal here over the LA Galaxy. I was expecting a pick’em line or maybe the typical -0.25 line for home field, but not this number. Columbus has now lost five straight games after starting the year strong with just one loss in their first six games. They have scored just two goals in those five losses and while they were never an offensive team, their defense has left them and that was the key to them winning games. They have now conceded 10 goals over those five losses. It has been a tough run with games against Houston and Portland plus two games against DC, but LA is just as tough and playing very well at the moment.

Event: LA Galaxy at Columbus
Sport/League: SOC
Date/Time: May 8, 2019 7PM EDT
Play: LA Galaxy +0.5 (-105)

While LA did lose this weekend at NY Red Bulls, that was their first loss in their last eight games and only their second loss of the season. Their much improved defense this year has really been the difference maker although they did allow three goals to New York. The offense continues to do their thing behind the playmaking of Zlatan of course, so they look like a tough team to beat this year if they can keep playing well defensively. The only worry here is they are traveling on short rest coming from NY for a short road trip, but otherwise I think the play here has to be on LA. Columbus just does not look good right now.

TAKE LA GALAXY +0.5

Nick Borro has carved out a name for himself betting on soccer. He fell in love with professional ‘football’ (as anyone outside of the United States would refer to it) the first time he attended an MLS game seven years ago. Now, Borro uses statistical analysis as well as current trends to successfully find value on soccer matches across the globe.Unlike professional sports in the United States, the best players in the world reside in Europe’s big five leagues including the Premier League, La Liga, Ligue 1, Bundesliga and Serie A,as well as the most prestigious tournament of them all The Champions League. Here is where you will find Borro focusing his attention during the fall to spring season.Of course, you can’t forget the fast-growing MLS which finishes the year-round soccer schedule through the summer months in North America. MLS is now ahead of both the NHL and NBA in average fan attendance per game and continues to grow, seeing expansion teams added to the league in three of the last four years, as well as future expansion teams scheduled to be added in both 2019 and 2020.Borro has been around sports his entire life. He grew up playing basketball, football and golf, and eventually found his career working in the golf business as a Class A PGA Professional.Join Borro to beat the industry in the biggest professional sport in the world.
