New York Red Bulls vs. DC United Betting Tips
DC United travel to New York after connecting two wins in a row in front of the home fans, beating Philadelphia Union (2-1) and New York City (2-1), hoping to continue their streak at Red Bull Arena. However, NY Red Bulls are a known tough side at home and it’s a longshot the visitors can now deny them a return to the winning ways.
New York Red Bulls currently sit just outside the Easter Conference top 6 with just seven points earned in their first five games, with a very poor series of results on the road. Nonetheless, their home form has remained almost intact and we’ve seen them earn a 1-0 win over Colorado Rapids and hold Real Salt Lake to a draw (0-0) there. We’ll now back them to continue their fine form there and go for a home win here with a banker bet at 4/7 with bet365
They’ve been struggling to score goals this term, though, and we now expect a narrow contest as Red Bulls have been rock-solid at the back and based their success on it. We’ve seen them concede just one goal in their last two home outings, which could prove worrying for the visitors struggling for success away from home.
Red Bulls have netted just five goals this season and with DC United bagging four, we’ll now go for Under 2.5 goals FT, which could as well be the best way to approach the fixture at a good-looking 6/5 with William Hill
, hoping not to see the sides break out of their goalscoring woes on the day.
New York Red Bulls vs. DC United Stats
DC United have snatched a point on their last trip to this ground (a 2-2 draw in September 2016), building on their home draw in August. However, this have been the only two of their last five head-to-head encounters to finish with three or more goals and with their current spells of form, we do feel we’re in for another low scoring contest.
We’ll thus go for a home win with narrowest of margins, backing a 1-0 home win at 7/1 with Ladbrokes
and hoping to see another great defensive display from the Red Bulls.
