The Columbus Crew take their four-game win streak and playoff aspirations on the road Wednesday night when they visit the New England Revolution.
At an average odds offering of 3.00, I like the Crew to come out on top, though like in their last 10 games, expect this one to be decided by a single goal. With 4-5-4 (W-L-T) to show on the road so far, their performance away from Ohio isn’t that bad, with last week’s win at Philadelphia a good showing of their resolve.
Don’t forget that Columbus beat New England 4-3 only 10 days ago in a classic battle.
The draw is currently sitting at 3.20, and I expect these odds to be lower towards kickoff as many bettors will equate these two teams as relatively even.
If you want to play conservative and look to a yield of 46% then take a look at the Double Chance for Columbus which sees – you guessed it – 1.46 being offered should they win or draw.
The Revs' record at Gillette Stadium isn’t really as outstanding as it used to be, with a record of 5-4-5 to show for it. In addition, they haven’t won at home in their last five games, including losses to lowly Toronto FC and a boring 0-0 draw against Philadelphia this past Saturday.
New England is favoured at 2.37 for the outright victory, despite not having won a game in 10 matches.
