Philadelphia Union vs San Jose Earthquakes Prediction
Despite the initial 2-0 loss to Dallas FC in Texas, Philadelphia Union are still regarded as top tier material. They have faced arguably the best team in the league last weekend, Los Angeles FC and escaped California with one point. It was a six-goals thriller match which eventually ended as a 3-3 draw. Interestingly, Jim Curtin’s squad had a lead three times in that match.
Union had solid record at home in the previous season of ten wins, four draws and three losses. San Jose had extremely high loss rate on the road (11 losses in 17 games), so we have no doubt they are returning home empty-handed this weekend. Home win bet should be backed with stake higher than usual.
As for the alternative bet, Philadelphia to score Over 2.5 team goals at 2.80 definitely seems like a great value.
