Betting Tips for Today: Home comforts should ensure New York City FC get three points

USA Today
While their recent road trips may not have been overly fruitful, Yankee Stadium has been a happy hunting ground for Domenec Torrent's side

There is a quick turnaround for New York City FC in MLS this week. Two games in three days shouldn't deter punters from siding with the hosts when they face New England Revelution though.

NYCFC are 11/20 (1.55) favourites with 888Sport to win the match. The draw is 3/1 (4.0) while the visitors are outsiders to spring something of a shock at 18/5 (4.60).

Domenec Torrent's men are third in the Eastern Conference but much of their success has some on home soil where they've taken 33 points from just 13 games.

They're yet to taste defeat at Yankee Stadium and another win this midweek will see them leapfrog rivals New York Red Bulls in terms of having the best home record in the division.

That success is built on eye-catching performances at both ends of the field. NYCFC have conceded just seven times in those 13 matches, netting 30 times themselves. That’s an intimidating record for any away side to square off against.

New England on the other hand have fared poorly on the road. The visitors have picked up just one victory away from home and losing half of their 12 games away from home this season.

The hosts' recent form doesn't look much to shout about but they've played five of their previous seven matches away from Yankee Stadium and one of the two home games was against the Conference leaders.

On that occasion they showed plenty of resilience to secure a point despite finishing the game with just nine men.

Given how impressive NYCFC have been in front of their own fans, take a chance on them winning by at least two goals by backing the 31/20 (2.55) on the -1 goal handicap ahead of back-to-back home games in the coming days.

This bet has landed seven times in their games at this venue and looks a solid bet again as a travel sick New England team come to town.
