Our prediction for this MLS match:
New England will be looking to put an end to their five-game winless run in MLS when they welcome Philadelphia Union at their Gillette Stadium on Sunday. The Revs head into the match following a 3-3 draw with Orlando City where they were on the verge of beating the Lions. However, Orlando City scored the equalizer in the dying seconds of the match, with Scott Sutter finding the net. Philadelphia Union, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-0 loss to Portland Timbers and, no doubt, they are determined to get back on course. Both New England and Philadelphia are eyeing a place in the play-offs and we predict both teams will go for a win in Sunday’s football match. Taking everything into account, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score.
