MLS Odds: There are two games in MLS for Sunday, July 3rd including the New York Red Bulls visiting New York City FC in a game that can be seen on ESPN. This is a huge revenge game for New York City as they were humiliated at home earlier this season, losing 7-0. The teams have met four times in the past two seasons and it has been all Red Bulls as they won all four games. The other match for Sunday in MLS has the Columbus Crew at Sporting Kansas City.
Here is a look at both games and MLS picks.
Sunday, July 3rd (All Times Eastern)
The New York Red Bulls are slight favorites on Sunday as they visit New York City FC on ESPN. The Red Bulls are in third place in the East with 23 points while New York City FC is one point in front of them in second place in the conference. It is a little bit surprising that the Red Bulls are listed as road favorites in this contest. The Red Bulls are 1-6 on the road with 2 draws while New York City is 2-3 at home with 5 draws.
3 Way: New York Red Bulls +125, New York City FC +200, Draw +245
Spread: New York Red Bulls -145, New York City FC +125
Total: 2.5 over -135
These teams have met four times with the Red Bulls winning all four times with three of the four going over the total.
I think this is a great spot for New York City to get their first win against their rivals so I will take New York City at +200.
Columbus Crew at Sporting Kansas City – 7:00 pm (FS1)
Sporting Kansas City is favored at home on Sunday night as they host the Columbus Crew on FS1. Columbus comes into this game in 9th place in the East with 16 points while Kansas City is in 7th place in the West with 22 points. Columbus is 0-4 on the road with 3 draws while Kansas City is 4-4 at home with 1 draw. The teams played once last season with Columbus winning 3-2 at home.
3 Way: Sporting Kansas City -160, Columbus Crew +410, Draw +285
Spread: Sporting Kansas City -1 +110, Columbus Crew +1 -130
Total: 2.5 over -115
Kansas City has won 7 of the last 10 meetings in this series with Columbus winning twice with one draw. Six of the last ten have gone over the total.
I will take Kansas City to get the home win.
