Red Bulls vs Inter Miami Predictions, Game Preview, Live Stream, Odds & Picks

MLS Eastern Conference Matchup

Six-Point Game

If the MLS regular season ended today, the New York Red Bulls and Inter Miami would qualify for the playoffs. The Red Bulls would do it in fourth place, meaning they would play host to fifth place in the first round. As for the Herons, they would do it in sixth place, meaning they would visit the team that finishes third.

The thing is that there are five points between the two and New York has played one more game than Miami. If the Herons win, things could drastically change in the upcoming weeks. Nevertheless, despite being on a five-game non-losing streak, the visitors come in as the betting online underdogs.

Let’s check the latest MLS news, stats, injury reports, and MLS odds for Red Bulls vs Inter Miami. We’ve plenty of MLS picks and predictions and soccer betting for you to consider.

New York Red Bulls: Problems at Home

Last season, the New York Red Bulls finished seventh, so finishing fourth would be an improvement. The thing is that they haven’t been consistent when playing at home, which could decrease their chances to win the MLS Cup.

Overall, the Red Bulls have won 11 games, only three were at home. Most recently, they drew 1-1 to CF Cincinnati after coming from behind. Prior to that, they lost to Orlando City, Colorado Rapids and New York City FC. If they want to be taken seriously, they need to make Red Bull Arena a fortress. The good news is that they’ve collected at least five home victories in every MLS season since 2003 and they still have time.

Curiously enough, four of New York’s last seven home goals have been on penalties, including the last three in a row. There’s nothing wrong with that, but they cannot continue depending on the opponent’s mistakes. They’ve a talented squad that includes Lewis Morgan, who has scored 11 goals, and Patryk Klimala, who has scored five.

Despite not having the best numbers at home, the Red Bulls dominate the soccer lines thanks to a -155 price. Having scored in seven of their last nine home games, regardless of the result, has a lot to do with that.

Inter Miami: On the Rise

After having a bad first half of the season, Inter Miami have turned things around in the last month. As mentioned before, the Herons have five straight games without losing, the second-longest unbeaten run in the club’s history.

Most recently, they defeated Toronto FC 2-1 with great performances from Jean Mota and Ariel Lassiter. Prior to that, they also defeated New York City FC in a goal-fest that finished 3-2.

Besides momentum, Gonzalo Higuain is the main reason for you to consider including the Herons in your soccer picks, especially at +395. If they pull off the stunner, a $100 wager would turn into a $495 payout, but back to Higuain. The veteran striker has three straight games with a goal contribution, one goal and two assists. There’s also Alejandro Pozuelo, who scored two goals and made three assists over the last three games.

Unlike the New York Red Bulls, Miami’s numbers on the road aren’t good. They own a 2-3-7 record, but again, they’ve been turning things around. Their last road game was against CF Montreal, the team sitting in second place, and it ended 2-2. They scored in three out of their last five games away from home.

Red Bulls vs Inter Miami Prediction

As mentioned before, momentum is on Inter Miami’s side, but the New York Red Bulls are the better team. Therefore, I expect another close battle, like the one in May. Yes, Miami won 2-0, but New York dominated possession with 54 percent and finished with more shots in total.

There’s always a first time, in this case a first draw. Both are highly motivated and have had some trouble playing at home (New York) and on the road (Miami). Summing up, I recommend you include the draw in your online gambling ticket. I also recommend you not to miss the game, because there will be fireworks.

Score Prediction: New York Red Bulls 2, Inter Miami 2
