Heavyweight Fight in MLS Eastern Conference

Two seasons ago, the New England Revolution won the regular season with 73 points, but New York City FC ended up winning the MLS Cup. Five games into the current season, the Revs are first in the Eastern Conference while the Citizens have struggled a bit more than expected.

Even so, if you were looking for a MLS betting underdog to wager on, the boys from the Big Apple might be the answer.

Revolution: Flawless at Home

The New England Revolution are atop the Eastern Conference standings thanks to a 4-0-1 record. Their only loss was against reigning champion Los Angeles FC, and it was humiliating since they lost 4-0 despite winning possession with 56 percent. The problem was they finished with only one shot on goal

The good news (kind of) is that the match was on the road, and things have been completely different for the Revs playing at home. They already defeated the Houston Dynamo 3-0 and Nashville SC 1-0 at Gillette Stadium.

Overall, the Revs have finished with a clean sheet three times and scored in all matches except for the one in Los Angeles. In other words, we’re talking about an experienced, well-balanced squad, starting with head coach Bruce Arena, who has won it all.

That’s why it’s kind of surprising that they’re offering a +115 price in the sportsbook to win straight up. Even more because the Revs have only lost two of their last 10 home games and finished with a clean sheet six times. In other words, winning at Gillette Stadium isn’t easy for opponents.

New York City FC: Tiny Little Mistakes

New York City FC currently sits in seventh place thanks to a 2-1-2 record. They remain winless when playing on the road with a 0-1-2 record, but they put up a really good fight in each of those matches.

First, they lost 2-0 to Nashville SC, the team with the best defensive unit in the league, but they won possession with 62 percent and finished with nine shots in total, same as the Six Strings. Later, they drew 1-1 to the Chicago Fire. They lost possession but finished with two more shots on goal. Most recently, they lost 1-0 to the Houston Dynamo despite winning possession with 55 percent.

Summing up, unlike the New England Revolution, they haven’t suffered a humiliating loss. That’s why they can be considered a tempting online gambling underdog, especially at +240, which gives you the chance of winning $240 per every $100 wagered on them.

Finally, regardless of the result, the Citizens scored in six of their last 10 road games. Again, they won’t be easy prey.

  • Previous Matches: 23
  • New England Revolution Victories: 10 (33 goals)
  • New York City FC Victories: 8 (30 goals)
  • Draws: 5

As you can see, regardless of the MLS odds, we’re talking about a very even series, especially when it comes to the last 12 meetings. Each side won five times. One of the two draws was in the 2021 conference semifinals, in which NYCFC ended up eliminating the Revs in penalties after the match finished 2-2.

Most recently, New England had no trouble fulfilling their role as betting online favorites against New York thanks to a 3-0 victory at Gillette Stadium. It was never a contest since Jon Bell scored the opener only 12 minutes into the game.
