Football Bet of the Day: Defences to feel the burn in Dallas
Los Angeles FC are on their way to Dallas tonight and Tobias Gourlay's expecting some major-league sports entertainment
"Los Angeles FC have scored more away goals than anyone else in the league: 17 strikes from seven road trips puts them well ahead of the rest"
Dallas v Los Angeles FC
The Red Army swept past Waterford 3-0 in Ireland last night and took our Win to Nil bet with them.
From the Red Army yesterday to the very epicentre of global capitalism today. There's a bunch of MLS games taking place across the pond tonight. Dave Farrar's cast a learned eye over three of them, kindly leaving Los Angeles FC's trip to Dallas for us.
In seven appearances at Toyota Stadium this season, Dallas have managed just a couple of clean sheets. Both teams scored in each of the five other games, which most recently include a 2-2 draw with Vancouver and a 3-2 win over LA Galaxy.
Los Angeles' other team are in Texas tonight. New to the MLS, Bob Bradley's boys managed a 1-1 draw in the reverse fixture and we fancy their chances of getting on the score-sheet again tonight. They've scored more away goals than anyone else in the league: 17 strikes from seven road trips puts them well ahead of the rest. With eight in their last three, we're backing them to score again this evening against some odds-on favourites and land a BTTS bet for us.
