With FC Cincinnati so horrible this season, it’s rare you’ll get a money line with value against them and such is the case Saturday when they travel to Dallas to take on FC Dallas with the Dallas money line at -256 and the Cincinnati money line at +575.
FC Dallas has had a solid season and comes into this tilt holding the final playoff spot in the Western Conference leading Portland by three points. Dallas is 13-13-2 against the spread and 8-5-1 on their home pitch. They’re 2-2-2 in their last six matches.
Sometimes taking a huge dog can be profitable but with FC Cincinnati it’s just plain silly to do so as they carry the worst record not just in the Eastern Conference but overall with just 18 points. Cinci is 6-13-2 against the spread and 5-7-2 on the road. They’re 0-5-1 in their last six games.
Circling back to the money line issue when betting against FC Cincinnati, the -1.25 goal line is your best bet here. Dallas needs this game to maintain their playoff seeding and Cinci is likely already looking forward to next season. Take FC Dallas to roll here and if they win by just a goal, you really can’t knock yourself on this one!
