Wednesday brings us a bit of a scheduling quirk that results in the New England Revolution hosting the San Jose Earthquakes for a rare Wednesday night MLS affair. The Revolution come into this one having won each of their last six games at home, including both matches they’ve played at Gillette Stadium thus far this season.
This one will kick off at 7:30pm Eastern. Will the Revs keep their unbeaten home streak alive, or will the Quakes finally get over their awful form on the road?
Betting Value: The over on 2 ½ goals looks pretty strong here.
The Revs are coming off a rough 3-0 defeat at the hands of the Chicago Fire on Saturday afternoon, ending their three-match unbeaten run. Je-Vaughn Watson picked up a pair of early yellow cards resulting in New England playing with just 10 men for the majority of the match. As you would imagine, they were overwhelmed from that point on against a very talented Chicago side.
They’ll look for some home cooking tonight against an Earthquakes club that has endured some serious road woes recently. The Quakes have secured a win in just one of their last 21 matches away from Avaya Stadium, including both away games so far to start the 2017 season. They’ve been rather fortunate over the last two weeks, as they’ve gotten stoppage-time equalizers to salvage draws with Seattle and FC Dallas, respectively.
New England, meanwhile, has picked up wins in both of their games to this point at Gillette Stadium. Watson will be suspended for the game after picking up his aforementioned red card, but the Revs will have the rest of their usual XI ready to roll in this one.
This will be a major test for San Jose, who faces another pair of road matches after this one in Houston and Minnesota. Since the start of the 2016 season, SJ is just 1-11-7 away from home. With the Houston game coming up on Saturday, it’ll be interesting to see if head coach Dom Kinnear shuffles his lineup a bit.
We like the Revolution to bounce back and take all three points against a San Jose side that can’t get over its road woes. Neither of these teams has been particularly stout in defense so far, so we expect some goals to be scored here. Taking New England and the over is the play.
