When the New England Revolution vs. New York Red Bulls odds were originally released, the home team was a -300 favorite. Now, the Revs are priced at +105. So, what’s happened there?
Their coach got suspended by the Major League Soccer (MLS), and their first-choice goalkeeper Djordje Petrovic left Foxborough for Stamford Bridge. In the meantime, they’ve signed Czech veteran Tomas Vaclik, but he’ll probably need some time to get used to how things are run in New England.
Nevertheless, they’re still flying high in the East, so they shouldn’t worry too much about making the playoffs. A team that needs to be concerned about its postseason future is the New York Red Bulls. These guys are below the playoff zone right now, and the worst thing is that they’re competing with Lionel Messi’s Inter Miami for a spot in the Top 9.
That said, they’re desperate for points, which is why they have no other option but to go for a win on Wednesday evening. The trouble is that in order to win, they need to score some goals, and their offense has been terrible in 2023. In fact, the Red Bulls are the team that’s scored the second-fewest number of goals in the Eastern Conference.
New England Revolution vs. New York Red Bulls Prediction
The current MLS odds suggest the New England Revolution vs. New York Red Bulls game on August 30 is going to be a very close duel. We can only agree. Both sides are likely to focus on defense as getting a single point is much better than risking losing everything.
