MLS Odds: How bad do you want it? This is the match that will seal your name in the history books, representing the Eastern Conference in the MLS Cup Finals. There is a difference between making the playoffs and making the finals, and now New York needs to climb back from being down 2 - 1, and having surrendered 2 huge away goals to boot.
This is the first season that the MLS has implemented the away/home goal tie-breaking system, as is instated through Europe's 'football' system. New York knows that a simple 1 - 0 victory here would get them nothing at all, but a win of a match and plane ride back home for their efforts.
The two road goals New England found on the front leg of the Semifinals in New York, really make a 2 - 1 Aggregate match at New England more than just an uphill battle for the Red Bulls.
New England has been arguably the best team in MLS as the regular season came to a close, and the playoffs since.
After the 2 - 1 loss to this New York club onAugust 8, New England has lost just one of their last 15, and are 7W and 1D in their last 8 matches. Throw in the 9 goals they have scored in the playoffs going 3 - 0, with two of those 3 wins coming away from home, and now they get to come home and wrap up the Eastern Conference with their fans.
There is a search party out for Tim Cahill, because apparently he cannot be found doing a thing this season. It is amazing to most people that he is the biggest piece of the Australian success in national play, but absolutely pedestrian in MLS, if that. Anyone with news on when and where Mr. Cahill will show up, can contact the Red Bulls directly.
It is all Wright-Phillips, all the time! With a lovely dose of Thierry Henry running enough of the midfield to create danger in the 18'.
They will obviously have to carry this club again on the road, because down a goal is hard enough to deal with. If you forget that New England is going to come at you for 90 minutes and you let them do anything, it will be 3 - 1, and 4 - 1 on aggregate before you can take your seat at the match.

Quick Analysis & Prediction
Well, we know what we are working with here right? New York goes nowhere with some kind of laid back 1 - 0 result. As soon as New England found that net to make it 2 - 1, that changed the entire face of this match. Isn’t the total the most realistic place to go with a simple 2.5 on the board, knowing that New York will have to press, and New England will thank you for it and punish you as well.
This is another thing we love about handicaps and alternate totals. As I usually mention, especially when taking overs, I peek at the European offers on the prop Both to score, and this one is -150 at best that they will.
The 2.5 and 3 line is closer to even money, and the straight 3 is offered at +125 or so, so if Diamond offers it? I will tackle that total to go Over with the highest line offered, for the best price we can find, handicaps included.
See you at the Finals!
