MLS tips : New England Revolution v Chicago Fire
New England Revolution v Chicago Fire
I know that New England are unbeaten at home this season, and I know also that if things continue like this, I'm going to get very poor very quickly by opposing them, but I do think that the Chicago Fire are too big for their visit this weekend.
The Fire have now won five of their last six MLS games, and have already beaten the Revs once this season, and they did so comfortably.
They're unbeaten in their last four away games, and they certainly have the quality to come away from New England with a win, and the fact that they're 3.80 to do so makes that proposition more than tempting.
Nemanja Nikolic has been one of the revelations of this MLS season so far, already scoring three more goals than any Fire player managed in the whole of last season, and they've improved out of sight defensively, keeping clean sheets in five of their last six games.
And when you look in detail at New England's home record, it's only their win against Toronto FC that is truly impressive. They've been favoured by a kind fixture list and I feel that we'll see them slip down the table gradually, especially when (and it will happen) Juan Agudelo loses form.
You can lay New England at 2.04, which is a good insurance bet if you want to keep the draw onside, but I'll take Veljko Paunovic's team to grab all three points, and keep this Chicago surge going.
