DC United vs New England Revolution (By: Blitz)
New England Revolution is one of the hottest teams right now in the MLS. The last time they lost a league game was on May 5th and it was a big 0-5 against Chicago.
Many things have happened since that horrible streak of awful play they had and now they are a consistent, disciplined good team. Maybe the one with the best recent form in the league. Probably they are not spectacular, but they win or, at worst, draw.
Their last 5 games have been BTTS (7 if you want to count the Cup games). Sadly, the odds for a BTTS game are not good (1.53) in this game. Yes, probably it will also have over 2 goals (1.90 + btts), but I wouldn't be surprised if ended in a 1-1.
What would surprise me is a DC United victory. Yes, they are at home, but they doesn't scare anyone at home, and of course they won't do so to New England.
DC has tied 4 of their last 7 games while New England 3 of their last 6.
It's tough to choose. There is a big chance for a draw, but maybe also a win for New England. The best odd is the draw with a 3.6 odd. If I were to choose Away or Draw, the odd goes way down to 1.66, but a very high chance of being positive. New England to win with a Draw-No-Bet would be the safest way to go.
But I put a small stake at a different, more difficult, ending: New England winning with both teams scoring. Why?
- New England is the king of BTTS.
- DC United allows more goals at home than on the road.
- There's a big chance for a draw, but NE is ON FIRE. They want it all.
Just a stake 4 on a value pick.
Other bet suggestions:
- New England to score in the first half (they usually do it): 2.00
- New England win with draw-no-bet: 2.20 [If you want to do this bet but without taking a bigger risk]
- BTTS and over 2 goals: 1.90
