Whilst the hosts have a solid home record this season, our tipster is backing the visitors to take the points for their fourth away game in succession

Chicago Fire welcome New York City FC to SeatGeek Stadium on Saturday night in their final MLS home game for almost a month.

No team has a bigger points per game differential between their home games (2.0 points) and their away fixtures (0.33 points) than the Fire, and so they will be hoping to claim three points before their next match in front of their own fans.

Latest Odds

Chicago are favourites to take the points and extend their unbeaten home streak to six matches, with bet365 pricing them at 5/4 (2.25) .

New York City, though, have not lost in seven matches and are available at 2/1 (3.0) to make that eight with a win whilst the draw is 5/2 (3.50) .

Preview

Whilst Chicago’s home form this season is very impressive, with their 14 points accrued at home the sixth-most in MLS, the calibre of opponent has hardly been world-beating.

They have seen off New England Revolution, Colorado Rapids, Minnesota United and New York Red Bulls at SeatGeek Stadium so far – a quintet that has combined for just five away wins this season, with Minnesota contributing three of those.

Meanwhile, New York have the third-best away record in the league and have won their last three games outside of Yankee Stadium. Indeed, no team averages more points on the road than Saturday’s visitors (1.83 per game).

Tips and Predictions

With all that in mind, the 2/1 (3.0) price with bet365 on New York City to claim their fifth win of the season could pay dividends for punters on Saturday evening.

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
