Welcome to’s latest MLS betting tips! The upcoming weekend of fixtures sees Chicago Fire FC host a Philadelphia Union side - both of whom are yet to take all three points away from any of their first three games. Will either side win their first game of the season?

An Eastern Conference Clash

On Saturday, Philadelphia Union will be coming off the back of their second leg of their CONCACAF Champions League fixture against Atlanta United. Our soccer experts have looked at all the details and information for the upcoming encounter – let’s find out who we think will win at the weekend.

Chicago Fire FC

If we’re being honest, it hasn’t been the greatest start to an MLS season for Chicago Fire. After a 0-0 opening game against New England Revolution, Chicago found themselves at a loss to both Atlanta United & New York Red Bulls. Now without a win, Chicago will be looking to kick-start their season, after three underwhelming performances. One positive for the team is that Serbian midfielder, Luke Stojanovic, has netted twice in three games, benefitting the side hugely from the middle of the park.

Philadelphia Union

Just like their opponents, Philadelphia find themselves without a win in their first three league games of the season. A 0-0 draw opened their MLS campaign, but Philadelphia then suffered defeat to fairly-new MLS side Inter Miami, before a disappointing 2-0 loss at home to New York City FC. No.10 Jamiro Monteiro has scored Philadelphia’s only league goal of the season, and the team will need to attack Chicago with much more at the weekend.

Head to Head

As our soccer experts looked at the pair’s historical results, it was found that the results are edged by Philadelphia, who have won three of the last five. Meanwhile, Chicago have won two of the last five, including the most recent fixture between the two sides. With that said, that was only a club friendly, which was seen by many as a selection of pre-season games to prepare players. Now, Chicago will be looking to level the playing field in terms of recent results, and take the maximum three points away from the tie.

Statistical Highlights

In this section, our soccer experts have compiled all of the details and statistics we think you should consider when looking to bet on this MLS fixture. On top of that, our experts have used this information to create an expert betting tip - something you can make the most of!

Our Betting Tip for Today

Our experts have predicted that it’s likely both teams will score (due to a lack of quality defending from both sides this season). On top of that, our experts are saying that Chicago will come out on top in this one, claiming their first win of the season at home.

Chicago Fire FC Victorious in High-Scoring Affair

After considering all of the above, our experts have suggested that both sides will be looking to score early in the game. It could be a possibility, with both teams conceding easily in all three of their league games so far. As well as that, both sides will be looking to get their first win of the season, and as both clubs are struggling, they will both be looking to do it here. However, our experts predict that Chicago will edge it, with Philadelphia’s midweek clash in the CONCACAF Champions League being a potential problem for Philly.

You can find bet365’s betting odds of +300 for Chicago Fire FC to take the victory & both teams to score.
