Chicago Fire 19/20 to beat New England Revolution in Sundays MLS matchup
Market: Chicago Fire win
Odds: 19/20 @ Bet 365
With battles at both ends of the Eastern Conference remaining incredibly tight, a single point can see any side jump up several places. On that note, Chicago Fire will welcome New England Revolution to Toyota Park.
For the hosts on Sunday, although Chicago Fire haven’t quite started the new campaign to match their third-place finish in the Eastern Conference last year, The Reds will be hoping to kickstart their season and climb up the table. After 14 MLS games this year, Chicago have won five, drawn two and lost seven, scoring 20 and conceding 25 in return, The Reds do currently hold the worst defensive record in the Eastern Conference. With a points tally of 17, Chicago currently sit eighth in the table entering Sundays games and are five points adrift of their hosts. However, Chicago have now won three of their last four matches and also boast a stellar record against New England. The Reds have now won their last four matches in a row against The Revolution and in those four outings, Chicago have scored 12 times.
As for the visitors, after securing a seventh-place finish in the Eastern Conference last year, it appears that New England are once again on course for a mid-table finish. In their 14 MLS matches, The Whites have won six, drawn four and lost four, scoring 24 and conceding 20 in return. Now sat fifth in the table with 22 points, a win will see them leapfrog NY Red Bulls into fourth, however, their form of late will be a cause for concern. New England came crashing out of the cup to lower league Louisville City in midweek and the visitors have now just won one of their last five in all competitions.
