MLS Betting Online: After a two-hour rain delay produced a soaked pitch Sunday night in Dallas, the home team couldn’t find a way to get on the scoreboard and came away with a point in a scoreless draw against one of the league’s elite in Real Salt Lake.

FC Dallas was favored on the spread line in that match at -200, but since it ended in a tie that bet was graded as a push. What did cash was the +210 three-way moneyline MLS online odds and the ‘under’ 2.5-goal total.

FCD is now unbeaten in its last five fixtures behind three wins and a pair of draws. The club has surged into second place out West with a 5-3-3 overall record and 18 points.

Defense has been the key to success recently. Dallas has built a 399-minute streak without allowing a goal—the second-longest mark in the MLS this season behind Columbus.

“I think we are feeling really comfortable with each other,” backline defender Ugo Ihemelu said. “I think now we are on the same page and working well with each other and that leads to success. I think we trust each other.”

FCD has given up the second-fewest goals per game in the Western Conference at 0.91 but this hasn’t been a great road club, going just 1-2-1 away from Pizza Hut Park and allowing an average of 1.5 goals per match.

Seattle earned a 1-0 home victory over Sporting Kansas City on Saturday, cashing the -133 three-way MLS odds moneyline as well as the hefty -325 PK spread. An abundance of scoring opportunities was expected in that match as the 2.5-goal total was weighted toward the ‘over.’

The Sounders are now unbeaten in their last three games and sit in a tie for third out West with 17 points and a 4-3-5 record. The best way to bet on this club so far has been the ‘draw’ because of five ties in 12 league matches. The 6.91 units earned there is the best mark in the conference.

Much like Dallas, the Sounders are getting sound defensive efforts from their backline. SKC is known for its free-wheeling, attacking style but they only got off three shots on goal in the first half of Saturday’s match.

This will be the second match of a grueling eight-day, three-game stretch that will surely test Seattle’s stamina. A quality opponent is on deck but the Sounders can’t afford to look ahead toward Real Salt Lake on Saturday. They have one loss at Qwest Field this year and allow just 0.67 goals per game there.

The MLS online odds for this match were first available at BookMaker sportsbook. The three-way moneyline wagering options were: Dallas +200, Seattle +115, Draw +210. The forecast for Qwest Field on Wednesday calls for a low of 49 and a 50 percent chance of rain. The last two Sounders matches there have gone ‘under’.
