Our prediction for this MLS match:
Toyota Stadium will host Sunday’s football game between Dallas and Nashville, the two teams who have been producing fine displays at the start of the season. The Toros occupy 4th place in the Western Conference, but a win over Nashville could see them climb to 2nd position. It has to be noted that Dallas have suffered only one defeat at home so far this season. The likes of Ema Twumasi, Paxton Pomykal, Tsiki Ntsabeleng, Sebastian Lletget, Paul Arriola, and Tarik Scott should miss out with injuries.
Nashville, on the other hand, are eyeing their fourth consecutive league win, but beating Dallas on the road is easier said than done. Taking everything into account, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on draw. Defender Nick DePuy misses out with an Achilles tendon problem, but he should be the only absentee in the away team.
