Market: Under 2.5 goals
Odds: 10/11 @ 888sport
Two MLS outfits who find themselves enjoying their own extended purple patches, Philadelphia Union will host New York City late on Sunday night.
Starting with the hosts, marking their return from the international break with a single point on home soil, Philadelphia have somewhat gained the reputation as a stalemate specialist. In their 15 MLS matchups so far this season, they have recorded six wins, eight draws and just a single defeat, scoring 20 and conceding 11 in return. Managing to muster a points tally of 26, they open this weekend’s fixtures sat third in the Eastern Conference and just a single point adrift of climbing to top spot. As for their recent run of results, last seen playing out a 1-1 draw against Cincinnati on home soil, Philadelphia have had to settle for a stalemate in four of their last five domestic contests. Likewise, it should also be highlighted, Sunday’s hosts have seen each of those five outings finish with under 2.5 goals.
As for the visitors, while New York would have been disappointed to have only collected a single point on their return from the international break, they are in the midst of a real purple patch. In their 14 MLS matchups this season, they have recorded eight wins, three draws and three defeats, scoring 25 and conceding 11 in return. Managing to muster a points tally of 27, the Blues open this weekend’s fixtures sat at the top of the Eastern Conference and holding a one-point buffer over the chasing pack. As for their recent run of results, last seen playing out a 1-1 draw against Colorado Rapids on home soil, NYCFC are unbeaten in each of their last 12 contests across all formats. However, it should be noted, with Sunday’s guests seeing each of their last six fixtures finish with under 2.5 goals, we’re backing a similar outcome here.
