The Union come in struggling of late with a 1-2-2 record over their last five games. However, it's excused as Philadelphia sent many players to represent their respective nations in the CONCACAF Gold Cup.
Philadelphia is down GK Andre Blake, F Cory Burke and D Alvas Powell, all of which have played an impactful role this season. Inter Miami CF sent just D Kelvin Leerdam.
Over the last five games, Miami has allowed 12 goals and scored just 1. It's been a brutal stretch for the Eastern Conference's last-place team.

Money line (ML)
BET on the UNION (+130) as the couple of pieces they're down shouldn't impact them too much. Blake is the most important loss as he's their starting goalie.
GK Joe Bendik has served as a decent backup. This match will be more about Inter Miami's inability to defend. It has given up 22 goals through 12 matches and Miami has also lost five of six home games and doesn't take advantage of the home crowd.
Despite being down a couple players, I'd still back Philadelphia.
"LEAN" to the UNDER 2.5 (-125) as the best value on the total.
The Union will be without their second-leading scorer in Burke. They aren't a score-heavy side as they have just 19 goals through 15 matches.
Philadelphia's strength comes in its defending which should get a nice break as the only player on the opposing side to really worry about is F Gonzalo Higuaín. He's the only Inter Miami player with more than 1 goal on the season.
That said, the Under hit in three of the last six games for both sides. It's the better play but just for half a unit.
