Spread: New York City +0.75
Total: 3.5 Goals
Philadelphia Union (16-10-7) were not very good in their last match and eventually fell by 0-2 on the road against Columbus. They did hold on to a goal-less draw for quite a while, but Columbus scored twice in a four-minute span for the final 0-2. Philadelphia have struggled to get results lately, with just one win in their last four matches (1-2-1). They are 3rd in the Eastern Conference with 55 points, just as many as Atlanta above them. They have also been very strong at home (10-2-4), where they are undefeated in their last eight matches (5-0-3). However, they kept just one clean sheet in that span.
On the other hand, New York City (17-6-10) are also coming off a 0-2 loss on the road, against New England. They were actually better than their opponents in terms of scoring chances but conceded twice in the second half. That loss didn’t matter, and it came after a nine-match undefeated streak (7-0-2). New York City captured the top spot of the Eastern Conference with 61 points, and the best offense with 61 goals. They also have the best away record in the Conference (6-5-5) but have won just two of their last six (2-3-1).
New York City won by 2-4 at home earlier in the season and have now won three in a row against Philadelphia, and six of the last seven. They have also done a good job in this venue over the years (2-3-0). Going with Philadelphia on this one, but this match can easily blow up to four goals or more.
