MLS Preview: DC United vs. Inter Miami Prediction, Odds, and Picks (Jul 8)
- Inter Miami’s attackers have (finally) started showing their offensive power.
- “The Herons” held the mighty Columbus Crew to a 2-2 draw in the Fourth of July game.
- DC United’s men seem to love playing against teams with attack-first soccer philosophy.
Our pick for Inter Miami’s game with Columbus Crew was that the game would end in a tie with four or more goals in total. And it won! The game finished 2-2, meaning that “The Herons” got themselves another point. It was their second consecutive tie after a horrible run of seven straight losses. But they remain without a single win in the 2023 MLS since the first half of May. Maybe that will change this Saturday?
Oddsmakers don’t seem to think so. In fact, they see DC United as an odds-on favorite in the game against Miami on July 8 at Audi Field in Washington, DC.

On Tuesday evening, Inter Miami players show they have it in them to do well against big opponents. They drew 2-2 with Columbus Crew, the team that was sitting in the No. 5 spot in the East before the game. They played attacking-minded soccer throughout the game, keeping the ball in their possession for nearly two-thirds of the time.
Their defense did not impress, but their offensive department was brilliant. Miami’s No. 9 Leonardo Campana was the man of the match, scoring one goal and recording one assist. The other goal was the work of Josef Martinez, who came on the pitch in the 74th minute of the game.
“The Herons” have a lot of talent in the final third, which is why we expect them to do well offensively against DC United on Saturday. They should be the ones to dominate the game. The trouble is that Wayne Rooney’s men have no problem with letting the opposition take the initiative. Their strongest weapon is hitting their rivals on the break.
DC United vs. Inter Miami Prediction
Inter Miami’s attackers are more than capable of scoring against DC United, but “The Herons” defense just doesn’t have what it takes to tame Christian Benteke, Christian Dajome, Taxiarchis Fountas, and other players from the capital. That’s why one of our top picks for this game is that we’ll see over 3.5 goals.
And what about our DC United vs. Inter Miami moneyline prediction? We think a draw looks like the most plausible outcome.
