Late night action from MLS; and its a tip that has consistently delivered profit for me for most of this season; but I haven’t tipped it nearly enough.
New York Red Bulls v New York City FC – Over 3 Asian Goals @ 1.70 (Bet365) – 3 points
Since New York has got 2 teams in the MLS; it has been a major source of rivalry between the 2 teams even before a ball was kicked off.
While New York Red Bull have lost Thierry Henry and Tim Cahill of their team v last season, they have continued to build goals from their top scorer Bradley Wright Phillips who has already netted 9 times this campaign. He has had able support from Sam and Grella; and this has seen them be among the leading goal scoring team in terms of goals scored per game at 1.57 goals per game. Defensively they have been average and have conceded around 1 goal per game, as they rely more on their offence to deliver rather than their defines.
New York City FC have a goal scoring machine in David Villa in their ranks, who has already chalked up 13 goals so far this campaign. New York City have just recently got both Lampard and Pirlo to play after they have alleviated their fitness concerns, and once can see more goals for the team as well as from these 2 legends now that they should be playing week in and week out for the team.
Matches between the teams have seen some excitement with a minimum of 3 goals in them and both victories going to New York Red Bulls; however I think City should be upbeat for this game especially since they have been scoring 13 goals in their last 4 games.
Over 2.5 goals will be my pick for this encounter.
