Market: Nashville SC win
Odds: 13/10 @ 888sport
Hoping to pick up a real scalp and continue on their impressive run of form on home soil, Nashville will play host to away day strugglers Minnesota in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
Starting with the hosts, while Nashville might have marked their maiden MLS campaign with a worrying run of form, the Yellows have gained a reputation for their rugged performances, particularly on home soil. Eventually having to settle for a point away at New England over the weekend, despite creating a string of chances, Head Coach Gary Smith has seen his side lose just one of their last eight appearances and has been filled with praise for his squad. Looking to upset the odds on their debut year and secure a top-six finish in the Eastern Conference, Nashville should also be boosted by what has been an extended purple patch on home soil. Including what was nothing short of a stunning 4-2 romp against former MLS champions Atlanta last month, the Tennessee outfit are unbeaten in each of their last five contests at Nissan Stadium, also collecting wins over both DC United and Inter Miami.
As for the visitors, while Minnesota might have managed to pick up what was a much-needed 2-0 win against Eastern Conference strugglers Cincinnati over the weekend, it hasn’t quite covered a worrying spell for Adrian Heath’s men. Slipping away from league leaders Seattle, the Loons have managed to win just one of their last five MLS appearances and also have a real reputation for what have been some rather glaring issues on their travels. Including what was a worrying display as they were hit with a 2-1 defeat away at Columbus Crew last month, Minnesota have remarkably failed to win any of their last six straight contests away from Allianz Field, collecting just a single point out of a possible 18. Knowing that they could face another stern test on their travels in midweek, we’re backing a home victory for the MLS debutants in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
