Men in Red to take some attacking football to Columbus

Bet 1: Back BTTS in Columbus v Chicago Fire @ 4/6 - KO 00:30 BST (Sun)

We begin in Ohio for a match that will hopefully have goals at both ends between Columbus and Chicago Fire.

The hosts have made an alright start to the campaign as they sit fourth in the Eastern Conference. The downside is that they have played more games than everyone else, so their haul of 18 points from a possible 33 isn't as impressive as their league position sounds.

Chicago Fire have only been able to take 11 points from their nine outings to date, but they did win last time out at home to Montreal Impact. It's also worth noting that they are unbeaten in two on the road.

As far as the goals go, the visitors have had all three of their away matches this season end with this selection landing and the same can be said for five of Columbus' six at home.

New England to prove razor sharp at the Gillette Stadium

Bet 2: Back New England @ 13/10 - KO 00:30 BST (Sun)

Over to Massachusetts now for a fixture between New England and Toronto that the Americans seem to be great value for.

The Revs lost at Montreal Impact last time out but prior to that they beating Sporting KC on this ground. Three of their five at the Gillette Stadium this year have resulted in victory and they finished last season with seven wins and a draw from their last eight at home.

The Canadians were beaten at home by Seattle when they were last in action and they sit 10th of 11 in the Eastern Conference with just seven points from a possible 24.

Away from BMO Field it's three defeats from three this term and they were thrashed 5-1 at Houston most recently.

DC United's travel-sickness to continue at Real Salt Lake

Bet 3: Back Real Salt Lake @ 4/5 - KO 02:00 BST (Sun)

We finish in Utah for what will hopefully be a routine home win for Real Salt Lake against DC United.

Mike Petke's hosts need to bounce back from two defeats, but they were both away from home. In front of their own fans it's three victories on the bounce, with the most recent being a 3-0 success over the Colorado Rapids.

They did lose their opener at home this season, but last year they ended the campaign on an eight game unbeaten streak - with the last five all being wins.

Their opponents tonight also lost last time out - a 3-2 defeat at Philadelphia Union - and that sums up their miserable away record.

This season it's four losses and a draw from five away trips and last year it was 10 defeats from their final dozen on their travels.
