Pick: New England Revolution to WIN
Odds: 7/10
Bookmaker: Betway
(All betting odds correct at time of writing: 14 June 2022)

Preview: Form? Tick. Strong underlying numbers? Tick. A near perfect home record when facing Orlando City? Tick. There is plenty to like about the prospect New England win just a sixth league game of 2022 that, if successful, will lift them above their opponents up into fifth in the MLS Eastern Conference.

New England Revolution – Will big name departures scupper momentum?

Comfortably the best team in the league last season. The Revs would initially struggle to live up to that billing in 2022, opening with a run of two wins in eight matches (D1 L5). Something has clicked more recently though. Last Sunday’s 2-1 on the road at Sporting Kansas City bringing up a sixth consecutive unbeaten outing in MLS, their third win since last tasting defeat in Washington to DC United on 23 April.

The concern now, however, is the disruption losing key figures is going to have on a team which had already endured an inconsistent season to date. New England haven’t put consecutive wins together in league play all year – which is their aim when Orlando City visit for game number 15 (W5 D4 L5) – and may struggle to do so once more after recently bidding farewell to top scorer Adam Buksa and goalkeeper Matt Turner.

Key Stat: In their 15 games in US Major League Soccer play in 2022, New England Revolution would both score and conceded 11 times (79%). This includes four of seven outings at their Gillette Stadium, where they are W3 D2 L2 for the season.

Orlando City – Unpredictable Lions can be anything on the day?

Try to predict this team at your peril. Quietly, Orlando City are enjoying a fine season. They occupy fifth in the Eastern Conference, a position and two points better off than a New England side who were the best around in 2021. But consistency is certainly not Orlando’s forte. Through 14 games (W6 D3 L5), they would replicate the same result in successive outings just the once, putting up form of LWLWDL in their last six.

On this basis then, having succumbed to a 3-1 loss last time at home to an FC Dallas side currently flying high in the Western Conference, surely we can dismiss the very notion of them losing in New England? I wouldn’t be so sure. Gillette Stadium has plagued The Lions since forever, going four for out of five for losses at this venue since a 3-0 scoreline upon first stepping foot inside this venue in September 2015.

Key Stat: Orlando City are usually good for a goal on their travels, finding the back of the net in all six MLS away matches since going to Chicago Fire in March, for their second league game of 2022, and playing out a goalless draw.

New England Vs Orlando City Betting Advice

This all Eastern affair pits fourth against fifth, respectively, as Orlando City resume their search for a maiden victory at this venue, Gillette Stadium. New England won last season’s corresponding fixture 2-1, meaning they have now won four of five meetings here, which includes the last four. Recent form would also suggest another home win is the most likely outcome: New England going unbeaten in their last six (W3 D3).

 

New England Revolution Vs Orlando City – Key Facts:

  • Two points separate these two Eastern rivals. Both have played 14 matches so far, New England winning five (D4 L5) to the six (D3 L5) of Orlando City.
  • New England are gathering momentum after a six-match unbeaten spell (W3 D3). They’ve lost a home game since going down 1-0 to New York RB at the start of April, remaining W2 D2 thereafter.
  • Just the five teams across both conferences have so far earned more away points than the 12 in 7 games of Orlando City. The Lions would score in each of their last six road fixtures.

 

The visitors boast a commendable away record this season: W3 D3 L1. This, however, is in in spite of an alarming negative xGD process (1xGF, 1.8xGA) on the road. For some comparison, Revolution are 1.6xGF and 1xGA across seven outings at Gillette Stadium, where they are unbeaten in four and were eye-catching last time out here (2.80xGF, 0.96xGA) against a Philadelphia Union second in the same conference.
