Columbus Crew 31/20 to beat Chicago Fire in Fridays MLS matchup
Market: Columbus Crew win
Odds: 31/20 @ Bet 365
Hoping to mount a late push in the Eastern Conference, Columbus will travel to Chicago on in the early hours of Friday morning as they look to heap more pressure onto The Fire.
Starting with the hosts, after another incredibly poor season in the Eastern Conference, many have Chicago tipped as the worst side in the MLS. After 26 games this year, they have recorded just six wins, five drawn and 15 defeats, scoring 36 and conceding 51 in return, they now hold the second worst defensive record in either of the conferences. As for their recent form, The Reds have now lost their last six matches on the bounce and have also lost their last four MLS matches at home.
As for the visitors, although they may have hit a blip last month, Columbus appear to be back on track. After 25 games in the East, The Crew have won 11, drawn six and lost eight, scoring 32 and conceding 32 in return. They now hold the third best defensive record in the division. Currently sat fourth in the table with 39 points, the visitors already hold a 10 point buffer from dropping out of the playoff positions. As for their recent form, Columbus have now won three of their last four, scoring seven in their three wins. Backing Columbus to come away with the win on Friday is the smartest bet here.
