Nashville 3/2 to beat Chicago Fire in Sunday’s MLS contest
Market: Nashville win
Odds: 3/2 @ 888sport
Two sides who find themselves battling it out at opposite ends of the MLS table, Nashville will make the trip to a struggling Chicago Fire on Sunday evening.
Starting with the hosts, left with real last-gasp heartbreak earlier in the week, Chicago find themselves in the midst of what has been a hugely worrying run of form. In their 26 MLS matchups so far this season, they have landed just six wins, five draws and 15 defeats, scoring 26 and conceding 43 in return. Managing to muster a points tally of 23 and sat 12th in the Eastern Conference, it should also be noted that the Fire hold the third-worst attacking and defensive tally in the division. As for their recent run of results, last seen in midweek getting hit with an action-packed 3-2 defeat against New England on home soil, Chicago have lost each of their last four MLS contests on the spin. Likewise, it’s also worth highlighting that Sunday’s hosts have managed to collect just three points from one of their previous seven MLS conests.
As for the visitors, managing to make what was a thumping return to winning ways in midweek, Nashville should be smelling another golden chance here. In their 25 MLS matchups so far this season, they have landed 11 wins, 11 draws and just three defeats, scoring 44 and conceding 24 in return. Managing to muster a points tally of 44 and opening this weekend’s fixtures sat second in the Eastern Conference, it should also be noted that the hold the best-defensive tally in the division. As for their recent run of results, last seen earlier in the week picking up a 5-1 romp away at Inter Miami, Nashville have collected 12 points from just their last five MLS contests. Likewise, winning three of their last four fixtures on the road, there is no doubt that an away victory on Sunday evening appears at attractive odds here.
