Landon Donovan scored two goals as the league-leading Los Angeles Galaxy ran their current unbeaten streak to 14 games with a 4-0 rout of the Whitecaps in Vancouver on Saturday night. Donovan and his high-flying teammates will try to extend their impressive run in one of three intriguing matchups on Wednesday night as the soccer betting action at the Bodog Sportsbook continues to roll along this week in Major League Soccer.
Real Salt Lake (9-4-6) is coming off a 2-0 loss to Columbus on Saturday which snapped their seven-game unbeaten streak during which they outscored their opposition 14-6.
Sporting Kansas City (6-6-9) managed a 1-1 draw on Saturday at home to New England on a goal by Teal Bunbury in the 89th minute of play.
Philadelphia (8-5-7) was defeated 2-1 by Colorado on Friday night and will be looking to close the gap on first-place Columbus in the Eastern Conference with a road victory.
Chicago (2-6-12) is buried in last place and coming off a 1-0 loss to Portland when they last took to the pitch in MLS action back on July 16. The Fire was also beaten 3-1 by Manchester United on July 23.
Donovan’s dual-strike performance on Saturday pulled him into a tie with Thierry Henry of Red Bull New York for the league lead in goal-scoring with 11 in just 15 games. The Los Angeles Galaxy (12-2-9) hasn’t lost since falling 2-1 to FC Dallas way back on May 1.
Portland Timbers (6-10-4) gave up two goals in the final 20 minutes and had to settle for a 2-2 tie against visiting Toronto FC on Saturday night.
