The NY Red Bulls are coming off a weirdly balanced match against Columbus Crew, where the two teams split the points. They have not been in the best of forms lately, and their next match won’t be easy either. They will play host to the Seattle Sounders on Wednesday, who finally won a match. It was against minnows DC United and hopefully they can build on that performance. MLS NY Red Bulls vs Seattle Sounders Spread and Prediction.
Date/Time: 6-13-2018, 20:00 EST
Spread: NY Red Bulls -0.75
Total: 2.75 Goals
The NY Red Bulls (7-4-2) played a very peculiar match against Columbus Crew over the weekend. Their opponents dominated them in the first half and took a one-goal lead. But the NY Red Bulls balanced the match in the second half, successfully securing a single point in that 1-1 draw. They haven’t been in very good form lately, having won just one of their last four in all competitions (1-1-2). The Red Bulls are now sitting at the 4th spot of the Eastern Conference with 23 point. They have been really good at home (4-1-1), where they have scored 15 goals, against just 3 conceded.
On the other hand, the Seattle Sounders (3-7-2) finally showed signs of life in their match against DC United. They had some key players return from injuries, and their morale was greatly boosted. They did struggle a bit, but eventually won by 1-2 after quite a while. Even so, Seattle have a lot of ground to cover in order to move closer to the playoffs. They are now sitting at the 10th spot of the Western Conference with 11 points, already 11 points behind Portland.
This is a match-up that traditionally favors whoever is hosting, with just two visitors wins in 12 matches. The two teams have exchanged home wins in each of the last four seasons, and it is Seattle who just slightly have the upper hand in this match-up (5-4-3).
At first glance it’s the Red Bulls who have the upper hand in this match. However, the Sounders got a great morale boost from the win and the return of Lodeiro and Rodriguez. The Red Bulls might take the win here, but the Sounders will surely not make it easy. Seattle will most likely score here, and even if they lose it will be marginal.
