Market: New England Revolution win
Odds: 19/10 @ Bet 365
Looking to shore up their spot in the playoffs, New England will travel to the TCF Bank Stadium when they face off against Minnesota United in the early hours of Thursday morning. After coming away with a 5-2 win in the reverse fixture, we are backing New England to once again come out on top.
Starting with the hosts, after finishing just four points off of bottom spot in the Western Conference last season, Minnesota once again find themselves outside of the playoffs. After 19 games this year, United have won seven, drawn one and lost 11, scoring 26 and conceding 38 in return, Minnesota now hold the second worst defensive record in the West. With a points tally of 22, the hosts currently sit ninth in the table and are six points adrift of the Top Six. As for their recent form, Minnesota have lost five of their last seven and have shipped two or more goals in their last four on the bounce.
As for the visitors, after missing out on the playoffs by a single spot last season, New England have bounced back and appear on course to secure a Top Six finish this time around. After 19 games in the Eastern Conference, New England have won seven, drawn seven and lost five, scoring 32 and conceding 28 in return. With a points tally of 28, The Revolution currently sit fifth in the table and hold a four-point buffer over dropping out of the playoffs. As for their recent form, New England have drawn three of their last five but have improved their form in the final third. The visitors have now scored eight in their last five and that should be enough to give them the edge on Thursday.
