Austin FC began the season with two consecutive victories, each scoring five goals. They had a brief slump in which they drew two games and lost one. Austin has won four straight games since then.
M Sebastián Driussi and F Maximiliano Urruti, two Argentine arrivals, lead the club to score 7 and 4 goals. This season, Austin FC is 4-0-1 at home.
Austin will have a tough time steamrolling the LA Galaxy. The Galaxy is paced by Mexican sensation F Chicharito, who has five goals and is the only player in the league with more than one.
Thanks to their conference-best defense, the Galaxy are fourth in the West, which has allowed just seven goals. They’ve thrown four shutouts and only allowed one multi-goal contest. On the road, the Galaxy is 2-2-1.

Money line: Austin FC +135 (bet 100 to win 135) | LA Galaxy +195 (bet 100 to win 195) | Draw +250
This season, Austin FC has performed well at home. They have not only not lost, but have outscored their opponents 15-1.
The Seattle Sounders were the only club to enter Q2 and not leave with zero points, and they were also the only team to score multiple goals against the Galaxy.
LA`s failure to attain is every other motive for worry. They have most effectively scored one aim of their beyond three games. LA can also war in opposition to protection tied for the third-fewest dreams within the league.
Given how well Austin has performed at home and LA’s recent run, I’ll expect Austin to win here, particularly at this price.
LEAN UNDER 2.5 (+110).
This season, Austin’s attack has scored regularly, but it has struggled against top-tier defenses.
Austin scored 10 goals against FC Cincinnati and Inter Miami combined, but just one against Minnesota, a top-5 defense in the West. They’ve scored three goals in two games against playoff clubs, both of which they won.
LA has only scored one goal in their past three games. It has only had three multi-goal games and has been shut out three times. Two of the three scoreless games were on the road.
It would not be surprising to see a squad that is so reliant on Chicharito suffer. With that in mind, I’m going with the Under 2.5 (+110) here.
