Soccer | New England Revolution vs Orlando City
Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

The MLS continues with an inter-conference game in the Eastern Conference where Orlando City will host the New England Revolution. There is a big hype for this game since both teams will hope that they can win with the season reaching the midway mark. I am expecting a very exciting game of football that is filled with action since both teams are really good to watch.

Orlando City have been a very poor side since Kaka left and it seems like the Lions have struggled to find a leader like the Brazilian World Cup winner. There is a great passion for the Orlando City team with the city really getting behind the franchise but it seems like the team simply lacks the skill to win games. The Lions have now lost their past three MLS games and the biggest issue has been the defense. Orlando City has been able to score but it seems like the team simply struggles to keep the ball out of the back of their own net. This needs to improve if the home team wished to get a result in this fixture.

The New England Revolution, in contrast, have been doing really well. While the past weeks have been tough, the team has done much better than what was expected from them and they will hope to get a few more wins and challenge for a place in the playoffs at the end of the season. This is a game that the New England Revolution will feel they can win since Orlando City are very poor this season.

Even away from home, I am going to pick the New England Revolution. While both teams have struggled for the past few weeks, Orlando City has looked far worse and the situation at the Lions is a very poor one. I think the visitors will win this game comfortably. We are getting a great price to wager on the New England Revolution winning so that is the bet which I am going to suggest.

 

Pick:
New England Revolution
