Goalkeepers

Brad Stuver | USA Today Sports Images

Brad Stuver is set to deputize for Sean Johnson while he’s away on international duty, and hosting an FC Cincinnati side on Thursday (7 pm ET | MLS LIVE on ESPN+ in US, DAZ in Canada) who rank dead last in goals scored, he has the best clean sheet odds of any goalkeeper on the board this week.

1 Brad Stuver NYC vs. CIN $4.5
2 Evan Bush MTL vs. SEA $6.9
3 Daniel Vega SJ vs. DAL $5.6

Defenders

Anton Tinnerholm | USA Today Sports Images

Anton Tinnerholm has yet to score in 2019 after bagging four goals and adding six assists last season, but the potential for clean sheet points combined with the possibility of making an impact in the attack gives the Swede a high ceiling against Cincinnati.

Midfielders
