LAFC vs. Nashville SC Preview and Betting Odds

Last Updated on March 20, 2024 6:17 pm by Erwin Noguera

Two teams that knew how to dominate their zone in the past are looking to straighten their path, as the Eastern Conference’s eighth-placed Nashville SC and the Western Conference’s tenth-placed LAFC face a duel of the needy.

Both have had pretty strong campaigns in recent years. The Music reached the final of the Leagues Cup last year, while the Californians come from two MLS finals in a row, winning one.

Both teams have a lot of potential, but something isn’t quite clicking yet. So, they should go all out trying to take advantage of the other faults to start their way to the top.

When and Where? 

Saturday, March 23, 10:30 pm ET at the Banc of California Stadium 

Moneyline odds: 

LAFC 1.58

Nashville SC 5.55

Where Can I Watch? 


Why Bet on LAFC?

LAFC will receive Nashville with only one win this tournament, accompanied by a draw and two losses.  That is far from the recent versions of the team that battled at the top of the West.

The Californians started with the right foot, beating 2-1 the always-tricky Seattle Sounders. However, later, their performance fell off a cliff, and they have been unable to score a goal in the three games ever since. A draw with Sporting KC is sandwiched between thrashings by Real Salt Lake and Minnesota United.

The good thing is that they have not lost in LA, so they can build momentum by becoming strong on their ground.  Whatever the case, let’s remember that the team winner of the championship had the likes of Bale and Chiellini on their side, and we must also highlight the contributions of Carlos Vela but his differences with the club’s directive continued this season, and he is already 35.

Why Bet on Nashville SC?

Nashville SC has a tricky challenge visiting LA, as even if the Black & Gold are not at their best, their ground is always one of the most fearsome in the MLS.  Even if they are unbeaten, they must improve their results, as after three draws and a single victory, they are barely in the middle of the standings, and a single loss could mean losing a lot of ground.

The good news is that their win came in the last match against Charlotte and, apart from a dull 0-0 against the NY RB in their season debut, they have scored in all their matches ever since, but with the issue that they have also received goals every game.  Another interesting fact is that all their five goals came from different players, so there is no maximum goal scorer.

The Music had a hard time in the CONCACAF Champions Cup, as they encountered the favorites Inter Miami and never really stood their ground. They tied at home after failing to capitalize on an early goal and fell without much resistance in Florida.

Final Betting Analysis: LAFC vs. Nashville SC 

This will be a pretty tight clash as there is not much of a difference in both franchises’ form. They are almost at the same position on the table in their conferences, and even if Nashville is undefeated, a lot of ties don’t say much. What is true, like we say above, is that LAFC has made the Bank of California stadium one of the most fearsome in North America.

We expect things to be tight, as even if LAFC has shown many fragilities at defense, those have been out of their ground.  We’ll go for a 1-1 draw.

Go for a tie at 4.2. If you bet $100 at such odds, you could get $320 for a total payout of $420.
