MLS Preview: New York City FC vs New England Revolution Prediction, Odds, and Picks (Jun 3)
- Neither NYCFC nor New England is doing great lately.
- New York City FC winless in the last six MLS games.

New York City FC is the team that won the MLS Cup in 2021, but in 2023, the Bronx Blues are second from the bottom in the Eastern Conference. These guys are 0-1-5 in the last six MLS rounds, but oddsmakers think their horrible run will end on Saturday, June 3, when they welcome the New England Revolution at Yankee Stadium.

There’s just one team in the Eastern Conference that’s collected fewer points than NYCFC. It’s Inter Miami, which has just one point less than the Bronx Blues. The main reason why New York City FC isn’t doing well in 2023 is that its attackers are out of form.
In their most recent game, the New Yorkers lost 3-1 to FC Cincinnati, even though they had the ball in their possession for almost two-thirds of the game. They also had 12 goal attempts, but only one of those went in. And the player who scored the goal for NYCFC was Brian Ezequiel Cufre who’s playing in the left wingback position.
When it comes to NYCFC’s attackers, they’ve been horrible lately. However, we could see some of them get on target on Saturday. The reason is that the New England Revolution has been dreadful defensively over the last couple of weeks.
In fact, Bruce Arena’s team conceded a total of 11 goals in the last four MLS rounds. That’s just under 3 goals per game on average.
NYCFC vs New England Revolution Prediction
New York City FC vs New England Revolution is going to be a fun game to watch. We predict there will be goals galore at Yankee Stadium on Saturday, with each team putting away at least one or two goals. Over 3.5 goals looks certain, but which team will score more? We think neither. Instead, a draw seems like the most plausible outcome of Saturday’s game.
