Minnesota United odds: +105 – 46.0%

Draw odds: +250 – 27.8%

LA Galaxy odds: +270 – 26.2%

With a massive 46.0% win probability at +105, Minnesota United are considered by the bookmakers as the expected winners this week. Naturally, this means LA Galaxy are less likely to win at +270 (26.2% probability). Our favorite pick for Minnesota United vs LA Galaxy is Over 3.5 Goals. It is currently priced at +180, but there is still a considerable chance for success – 35.71%.

Minnesota United vs LA Galaxy Lineups & Team News

Minnesota United

Coach Heath’s Minnesota United didn’t produce top-notch stuff in the game against San Jose Earthquakes last week, but the performance was enough for the club to record a vital point at home. Teemu Pukki scored the opening goal and could’ve added a second had he been a tad more precise when facing shot-stopper Daniel.

Predicted lineup – St. Clair (GK), Bristow, Tapias, Taylor, Boxall, Gregus, Trapp, Dotson, Hlongwane, Reynoso & Pukki

LA Galaxy

If coach Greg Vanney wants his team to advance to the next stage of Major League Soccer, he and his boys will have to find a way around our Minnesota United vs LA Galaxy predictions. There’s nothing good we can say about LA Galaxy’s most recent performances, as the team recorded a massive nine goals in the last three outings alone!

Predicted lineup – Bond (GK), Cuevas, Zavaleta, Yoshida, Edwards, Cerrillo, Rosell, Delgado, Costa, Sharp & Boyd

Player to Watch: Eriq Zavaleta

We are giving defender-in-chief Eriq Zavaleta a shoutout in our Minnesota United vs LA Galaxy prediction, as he was voted Man of the Match in the game against Portland Timbers last week. Sure, LA Galaxy conceded three, and Eriq is partially to blame for one of the goals, but he made up to the fans with a fantastic brace, which earned LA Galaxy a much-needed point. Seeing as coach Greg Vanney has some issues at the back, we are convinced that Eriq Zavaleta will find his name on the starting XI for LA Galaxy.
