New England was able to take it to Kansas City last match and emerged with the lead coming into Wednesday night's final leg. On the road, the Revs went a respectable 6-6-5 (W-L-T) though they were soundly beaten 3-0 when they last played at Sporting Park back in August.

The visitors come into the game as 5.00 underdogs at William Hill. They haven't won an MLS playoff series in six seasons, so it's hard to see an outright away win here, though the tie result with a New England +1 to start in the handicap market is at 3.40 which isn't bad at all.

The draw result in the 1x2 sector is at 3.60, with the double draw at 5.50. I don't anticipate this to crack given what is on the line tonight.

The hosts will come out looking for an early goal to get the engine running. Make sure to keep in mind that MLS does not use the away goal rule. They went 8-5-4 at home during the season and were able to take four of a possible six points in the two contests against New England.

Sporting are available for 1.73 in the 1x2, and 2.60 can be had in the halftime/fulltime picks.

A Kansas 1-0 result is listed right now at 6.50, while the 2-0 result is at 8.00. The over 2.5 is at 2.00 for this game and that result has cracked in both matches between the two clubs this year.
