We are jumping right into the middle of the week as we continue through the regular season of the MLS, to see the exciting clash between some of the top teams in the Eastern Conference.
The match is going to pit the 3rd and 5th placed teams in the east, as New England Revolution hosts the Columbus Crew at the Gillette Stadium.
The hosts for the match, New England, came into this week with 52 points, which they achieved through 14 wins, 10 draws and 6 losses.
Their opponents and visitors, Columbus Crew are not far behind, as they have 50 points, due to 14 wins, 8 draws, and 9 losses, trying to catch up to the higher spots.

Where Can I Watch?
Why Bet on the New England Revolution?
It’s worth starting this prediction with a fact – nobody in MLS has come to New England’s Gillette Stadium in Foxborough this season and left with three points.
The place is, in so many words, an absolute fortress; and that home record is the bedrock on which New England has built an impressive campaign.
But that makes it even more important for the home side to win again here – and lock down home advantage as much as possible as we head into the Audi MLS Cup Playoffs in just a few games time.
Why Bet on Columbus Crew?
Columbus´s last game was a 1-1 draw against Philadelphia at the Lower.com Field. Juan Hernandez scored in this MLS match, with the team having twelve corners in total and nine shots on target.
They have been going strong in their season, but they have a tough test in front of them, and it’s not just that they face a strong opponent in general, but the fact that they are facing them on the field they are relentless in.
The Crew are likely to go all in when it comes to this game, but their record has had them looking quite a little slow for what they’ll need to break their opponents’ unbeaten streak.
Final Betting Analysis: New England Revolution vs. Columbus Crew
New England Revolution is considered as a clear favorite in this clash, but they are not in top form these days, so we should consider Columbus Crew in this match. The thing is that New England is simply a different beast when they play at home.
As regards recent matches, the home team will be coming with a win in their last 5 games while the away team has won 2 of their last 5. We believe that once we consider everything, we should expect New England to remain unbeaten, but do not see them taking 3 points at home in this one, so we are thinking a draw is coming their way.
Go for a draw at +265. If you bet $100 at such odds, you could get $265 for a total payout of $365.
