Thursday, June 30th, 2016By Tom Wilkinson
MLS Odds: There is just one game in Major League Soccer for Wednesday, July 6th as the New England Revolution host New York City FC. The Eastern Conference Standings are really tight with eight of the ten teams separated by just seven points. New York City was 6-5 with 6 draws in their first 17 games for a total of 24 points while New England was 4-5 with 7 draws in their first 16 games for 19 points. The teams played to a 1-1 draw in New York earlier this season.
Here is a look at Wednesday’s game and MLS predictions.
Wednesday, July 6th (All Times Eastern)
New York City FC visits the New England Revolution on Wednesday night with the home team a slight favorite. New York City has actually played better this season on the road than they have at home. New York City was
4-2 on the road with 1 draw in their first 7 road games outscoring opponents by a combined 13-10. One player that New York City might not have is Kwadwo Poku who could be going to Miami FC in the North American Soccer League. Poku has five goals and seven assists in 34 appearances this season for New York City but he hasn’t played as much lately with just three starts in his last 17 games. Another player who could be on the way out is Mix Diskerud who hasn’t seen as much playing time recently. New York City manager Patrick Vieira said he doesn’t expect the team to be that active in terms of transfers. “I don’t think we’re going to make a lot of movement,” Vieira said. “Of course, we’re going to try to improve the team, but I’m quite really happy with the roster I have.”
New England was 3-1 at home with 4 draws in their first 8 home games outscoring opponents by a combined margin of 11-9.
There were no early MLS odds available for this match. New England has won two of the previous four meetings in this series with New York City winning once with one draw. Three of the four games went under the total.
I will take a shot with the draw at odds of more than 2-1.
