Competition: MLS

Market: New England Revolution win

Odds: 1/2 @ Bet 365

Handed the chance to climb into the play-off spots, a resurgent New England will welcome Vancouver to the Gillette Stadium in the early hours of Thursday.

Starting with the hosts, coming off the back of another impressive display in their 2-2 draw away at Eastern title contenders DC United last weekend, New England are enjoying quite the resurge. Yet to taste defeat in the MLS since the start of May, it will undoubtedly be their continued showings in the final third most impressing Head Coach Bruce Arena. Scoring a pair of goals in four of their last five outings, Thursday’s hosts should be confident of extending their recent tally against a Vancouver outfit who are still struggling with some glaring defensive issues. Also enjoying a three-match unbeaten run at the Gillette Stadium, fans in Massachusetts will know another win on Thursday would see them climb into the play-off positions.

As for the visitors, while New England might be enjoying a rise up the Eastern Conference, the same can not be said for the Whitecaps. Putting in yet another very worrying display in their 3-0 hammering at home to Sporting KC over the weekend, Vancouver have not picked up a single victory since the 26th of May. Now sat at the foot of the Western Conference, a huge part of their continued issues has been their form on the road. Suffering a 6-1 defeat against LAFC in their last appearance outside of British Columbia, Head Coach Marc Dos Santos has seen his side lose back-to-back matches on their travels.
