Reason For San Jose Earthquakes vs Chicago Fire Betting Tips

SJ Earthquakes sit ninth in the Western Conference and have had a slow start to the new season, while Chicago Fire occupy eighth place in the Eastern Conference, but have five more points on the board than Saturday’s hosts.

SJ Earthquakes had 62% of the overall possession, more corners, and more shots on target than their hosts New England at the weekend, but still ended up convincingly beaten. New England lead 2-0 at the break and scored a third goal in the sixty-eighth minute totally against the run of play. Qazaishvili pulled a goal back for SJ Earthquakes, but with just two minutes left on the clock it proved no more than a consolation goal. Chicago Fire edged their home game against Minnesota United last time out, scoring twice in the first half through Gaitán and Katai and kept a clean sheet in the second forty-five to secure a 2-0 victory.

The recent head to head record between these two clubs and their performances in the MLS over the last month or so, all suggests a double chance bet on Chicago Fire is well worth placing and that the most likely final score is 0-0. Chicago Fire have only lost two of their last seven matches against SJ Earthquakes, and the visitors have won the last three meetings between the pair. SJ Earthquakes have only won two of their last six matches in the MLS, while Chicago Fire are unbeaten in the last three games. SJ Earthquakes have kept two clean sheets in their last three matches, and Chicago Fire have kept clean sheets in each of their last three matches, and that’s why we believe a bet on a 0-0 draw has a great chance of paying out.

Salinas top scores for SJ Earthquakes with four MLS goals so far this season, while Nikolić leads the way for Chicago Fire with five. We’re confident that Chicago Fire will take something from Saturday’s trip to San Jose and have backed the visitors with a double chance bet and have predicted a final scoreline of 0-0. Chicago Fire have a good record against SJ Earthquakes and head into the game as the slight form favourites. However, both teams have kept a few clean sheets of late and we can see the pair cancelling each other out on Saturday and the game ending goalless.
