Dallas FC vs Philadelphia Union, 29 February 2020, Saturday
Major League Soccer, Kick-Off at 23:00 UK
Venue: Toyota Stadium, Frisco.
Dallas FC were one of the strongest hosts in the previous MLS campaign, and they are starting the new season in front of home crowd on Saturday evening.
Opponent on the other side of the pitch will be Philadelphia Union, a squad which performed awfully in the last two test games in the pre-season.
As expected, Dallas FC are given the advantage in terms of chances to win and odds, currently priced at 1.90.
This could be good value if Union doesn’t improve stats when playing on the road.

Dallas FC vs Philadelphia Union Prediction
San Jose didn’t play a serious role in the previous MLS campaign. Judging by the 34.00 outright odds to win the league odds, that is not going to change much this season.
They were always very serious when it comes to home matches though, having won 10 out of 17 duels at this stadium. The only two pre-season games saw them lose to Columbus and beat Reno.
Toronto FC have kept only one clean sheet during the preparations, while the attacking line is playing on high standards. The attack will once again be led by Jozy Altidore who scored 12 goals in the previous season.
We will back both teams to score as the primary bet at 1.55 odds. It should be a solid banker bet, possibly even landing in the first half.
