|New York Red Bulls win||+120
|New England Revolution win||+205
Is there any team in MLS right now that is in a better run of form than the New England Revolution?
They have three consecutive wins, a current place at the top of the Eastern Conference, and two attacking players who are unquestionably in the running for a league MVP award.
The Revs are absolutely flying.
But what about the New York Red Bulls? They’ll host Saturday’s game and have built a quiet yet developing rivalry with the Revs.
That said, goalscoring has become a persistent issue in recent weeks for RBNY, and it looks unlikely that they’ll be able to outshoot or outscore a team like New England.
Confidence is building for the visitors, pick the Revs for the win.

There’s a reason why the latest Power Rankings on MLS’ website has the Revs at #1.
Under Bruce Arena, New England are playing inspiring and dominant soccer this season.
Along with key playmakers and goalscorers like Gustavo Bou and Carles Gil, there are countless others within the squad that have turned them into a lethal attacking team.
On Saturday, they’ll have a good chance of earning a fourth victory in a row when they visit a RBNY side that are winless in their last three matches.
Finding the back of the net has become a real issue for the Red Bulls, and with only two goals in their last three matches, it’s going to be interesting to see if they can go toe-to-toe with the Revs.
As for New England’s frontline, they can count on their two leading attackers that are boasting some incredible numbers.
Nine goals and two assists for Bou, two goals and nine assists for Gil — a perfect balance that many teams can only dream of.
Looking at Bou, the Argentine is showcasing plenty of his strength and stamina that powers his shots and clever runs in the final third.
In support, Gil is mesmerizing with his distribution and vision that can create dangerous plays out of nowhere.
Even if the Red Bulls focus on shutting down either option this Saturday, that could then leave space for other talented names like Adam Buska or Arnor Traustason to give the Revs a lead.
18-year-old Caden Clark needs more time to develop into a consistent player, Cristian Casseres Jr’s form has dropped and Fabio is scoreless in his last three matches.
Outside of Patryk Klimala, who wasn’t exactly brilliant during Monday’s 1-0 loss to DC United, it’s difficult to feel positive about the Red Bulls’ attack.
Unless if there’s a serious emphasis on shooting during training this week, manager Gerhard Struber and his men could go another match with only one goal — or none at all.
Keep in mind, at time of writing, their xG (expected goals) tally of 18.25 is below the league average of 21.31, and well below that of New England’s xG rating of 26.24.
Bruce Arena Has Shown That He Can Adapt And Adjust His Tactics
Although he is just months away from turning 70, Bruce Arena is still capable of altering his game plan and strategy when needed.
Whether it be through a 4-2-3-1, a flat 4-4-2, a more dynamic 4-3-1-2 or a couple of other formations we’ve seen, the Revs have been composed when it comes to chance creation or counters.
The same goes for possession as well, with New England looking comfortable against high-pressing teams, or squads that sit back and give up more of the ball.
It has been fun to watch and it speaks volumes of the experience and know-how that Arena has provided.
