New York Red Bulls 7/4 to beat New York City in Mondays MLS derby
Market: New York Red Bulls win
Odds: 7/4 @ Bet 365
Looking to close the gap at the top of the Eastern Conference, New York Red Bulls will travel to Yankee Stadium with a single point advantage over their arch-rivals.
For the hosts, despite sitting third in the Eastern Conference and enjoying a bright start to the new MLS season, New York City have begun to struggle with their consistency. After 17 games, City have won nine, drawn four and lost four, scoring 34 and conceding 24 in return, no team in the top six holds a worse defensive record. As for their recent form, New York have now only won one of their last four in all competitions and have also lost their last two meetings to The Red Bulls by a score of 4-0.
As for the visitors, despite only securing a midtable finish in the Eastern Conference last year, New York Red Bulls have enjoyed a far brighter start to the season. After 16 games, New York have won 10, drawn two and lost four, scoring 34 and conceding 16 in return, they hold the best-attacking stats in the division. With a points tally of 32, The Red Bulls currently sit second in the table and hold a four-game advantage. As for their recent form, along with booking their spot in the next round of the US Open Cup, the visitors have won four of their last six in all competitions and we believe they will carry on their impressive form on Monday.
