Real Salt Lake - New York Red Bulls Betting Preview: Why a home win looks super value

The side from Utah should continue their recent dominance over the Red Bulls when the teams meet at the Rio Tinto Stadium
Fresh from defeating a Premier League team following their 1-0 friendly win over Arsenal, New York Red Bulls continue their domestic campaign with a game against Real Salt Lake.

Generally the Red Bulls have been average in recent weeks, with just one win in their last five MLS
matches and an away record which is far from impressive.

bet365 price them at 23/10 (3.30) for the victory while the hosts are offered at 11/10 (2.10) and the draw
available at 5/2 (3.50).

However the more one looks at the both sides' recent record the more backing a win for the side from Utah makes sense.

Real Salt Lake have an excellent home record losing just one of their last 14 MLS matches and the Rio Tinto stadium.

The last time they lost at home to the Red Bulls was November 2008 with Real Salt Lake winning each of their last four home matches against the New Yorkers.

As previously mentioned the Red Bulls' form on the road is patchy with just two wins in their last 12 away league matches.

All this therefore makes the price of 11/10 (2.10) for a home win looks fairly generous and the statistics and recent history more than back up this selection.
