Chicago Fire 21/20 to beat Philadelphia Union in Thursdays MLS matchup
Market: Chicago Fire win
Odds: 21/20 @ Bet 365
Two sides that are looking to break back into the playoff positions in the Eastern Conference, Chicago Fire will welcome Philadelphia Union to Toyota Park on Thursday.
For the hosts on Thursday, although they might be some way off matching their third-place finish in the Eastern Conference last year, Chicago Fire have recently shown some signs of life and are now a single point off jumping into the playoffs. After 19 games this season, Chicago have won six, drawn five and lost eight, scoring 29 and conceding 34 in return. With a points tally of 23, Chicago currently sit seventh in the table and hold just a two-point advantage over their opponents on Thursday. As for their recent form, the hosts have only lost one of their last eight in all competitions, winning four and drawing three. Backing The Fire to carry on their impressive form seems like the most logical bet here.
As for the visitors, after a tricky start to their Eastern Conference campaign, inconsistency has been Philadelphia’s major problem this year. After 18 games this season, The Union have won six, drawn three and lost nine, scoring 21 and conceding 27 in return, no team in the division holds a worst attacking record this season. As for their recent form, Philadelphia have lost their last two matches on the bounce and along with recording just one goals, they have also shipped six in return.
