Chicago Fire vs New York Red Bulls - 8/11/18 MLS Soccer Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

The Chicago Fire will continue their MLS season at home this weekend. The home team will play at Toyota Park as they host the New York Red Bulls. This is a game between one of the best teams in the Eastern Conference and one of the worst teams in the Eastern Conference. While that should usually make it a very one-sided contest, this may not be the case in this game since the weaker side is at home and they will look to use their fans to get a boost.

It has been a very poor season for the Chicago Fire as they currently sit second last in the Eastern Conference standings. The side has only won 6 games all season and with DC United improving, they could soon find themselves at the bottom of the ladder. It has been a very tough few months for this team as they have not won a single point since June. This is a very alarming statistics and it shows the dire situation of the team. This will be another very hard game for the Chicago Fire and it is hard to see them getting a result from this game, even at home.

This is good news for the New York Red Bulls since it seems like they have an easy opportunity to get three points. The visiting team is fighting for the top spot in the Eastern Conference and will know that they must win games to remain in this fight. There are huge hopes surrounding this New York Red Bulls team and they have not failed to deliver so far this season.

While everyone will love an underdog victory, I don’t see it happening. I think the New York Red Bulls will win and win with some ease. The Chicago Fire have been poor all season and I think the will get beaten badly once again.
