Betting tips New York Red Bulls vs New York City

An intriguing US Open Cup contest is expected on Thursday as MLS Eastern Conference pace-setters NY Red Bulls and NYC come head to head at the Red Bull Arena in Harrison, NJ.

Both sides have enjoyed excellent starts to the new MLS season with NYC currently top of the EC, 1 point ahead of the Red Bulls despite having played one game fewer.

Indeed, while NYC are in good shape coming into this local derby, form tends to go out the window on such occasions, particularly in a knockout cup event like this.

NYRB won when these sides last met at this venue while just 4 of their previous 21 meetings have been won by the away side including just 1 of the last 13.

At this venue, the Red Bulls have won 5 of their last 6 matches against NYC and considering their recent form, which has seen them win their last 3 home fixtures with 9 goals scored in the process, the hosts will fancy their chances of getting one over their city rivals.

NYRB offer great value at 2.6 odds to claim the victory while the 1.5 on the hosts to avoid defeat is a safer but less rewarding play.

A typically tight affair, 6 of the last 9 meetings between these sides including 4 of the last 5 have seen under 2.5 goals scored with NYRB winning 1:0 in 2 of their last 3 home derby matches against the visitors.

As such, we´re backing the Red Bulls to pick up a big cup victory in what should prove a tight and likely low-scoring occasion in Harrison, New Jersey.

Final score 1:0
