1SKC to win+310DraftKingsWhile it's true that Sporting haven't really been tested yet this year, their results have been impressive. Atlanta won't even have three full days rest before this match and they really could use it given some of their ailing players. SKC certainly should win in this scenario 1 in every 3 tries.
2Vancouver/Colorado Draw+230Draftkings/FanduelVancouver have created better chances than their results suggest. Neither of these teams will be keen to give up three points inside of their own conference and I think these draw odds are generous.
3Seattle Win+185DraftKingsThese two teams are at complete opposite ends of the spectrum right now. It's possible Houston could finally click, but I'm betting against it until I see any reason to believe in them.
4Raul Ruidiaz Anytime Scorer+170DraftKingsAnother bet beating up on a Houston side that just lost 4-0. Also looked at Edison Flores (+290) and Gaston Gimenez (+900).
5Dallas win or draw AND both teams to score+189FanduelDallas are losing some quality to the US Olympic Qualifiers, but if at least one of the three players stays for this match, I think they give NYC a run for their money.
6Columbus to win in shutout+200DraftKingsA top defense at home against a bottom attack on the road.

1Sporting KC +0.5-112DKThe matchup at Atlanta couldn't come at a better time for SKC. Sandwiched between a home-and-away CCL series versus Club America, it wouldn't be surprising to see Sporting KC come away from Atlanta with at least a point.
2Philadelphia ML-127DKThe Union are looking for their first win of the season after pulling off an impressive draw at LAFC last week. They're in a good spot in their home opener against a San Jose side that just lost to Minnesota 5-2 at home.
3MIA/LAG Over 2.5 goals -152FDThere should be fireworks in Inter Miami's home opener. While the Galaxy attack has struggled to get going, I expect them to make a match of this with the pressure mounting on both Chicharito to score and GBS to get a good result.
4Revs ML-120DKThe Revs have been unfortunate with a draw and a loss to start the season, missing point blank shots in the waning minutes of each match that could have swayed the results in their favor. Portland, on the other hand, were fortunate to pull out a 1-0 win over Nashville in Week 2 that saw the expansion side outpossess and outshoot the Timbers 14-3. This feels like a get right spot for the Revs to grab their first win of 2020.
