The Daily Acca: Vancouver to come up short in New York

New York Red Bulls celebrate
New York Red Bulls have the winning feeling at present

It is going to be a late night for Paul Robinson and Daily Acca fans as his three matches today kick off on the wrong side of midnight, but he believes that they will be worth it. Here are his selections:

- Back New York RB @ 1/2
- Back Sao Paulo @ 3/4
- Back Gremio @ 40/85

The Acca pays approximately 3/1

New York to pick up three more points

Bet 1: Back New York RB @ 1/2 - KO 01:00 BST (Thurs)

The Metros have had a mixed start to the 2019 MLS season as they have won as many as they have lost (five), and also drawn on two occasions.

The good news for Chris Armas and his side though is that four of their victories have come within their five latest outings, and they have an excellent chance to pick up another one tonight, as they are at home against the Vancouver Whitecaps.

Marc Dos Santos' visitors are ninth in the Western Conference having lost six of their 13 fixtures to date. They have won just three times, and they come into this game having been away at Sporting KC on Sunday (New York were at home).

The Caps have already been beaten at Real Salt Lake, Houston Dynamo and Orlando City this term, and they were beaten 3-0 on their last visit to this stadium.

All Serie A clash to go to the home team

Bet 2: Back Sao Paulo @ 3/4 - KO 01:30 BST (Thurs)

It is the last 16 of the Brazilian Cup and this first leg match between Sao Paulo and fellow top flight club, Bahia, should go to the hosts.

Sao Paulo have made an excellent start to their campaign as they are unbeaten in five - taking 11 points from a possible 15. It has to be noted that two of their dropped points came against this opponent at home, but I fancy them to make amends in this competition.

Bahia have been poor travellers for a while now, so it was quite the surprise that they managed a 0-0 draw here on Sunday. They were aided by a red card for Sao Paulo in the second half, and they lost their other two away matches this season.

No upset at Juventude

Bet 3: Back Gremio @ 40/85 - KO 01:30 BST (Thurs)

Another Copa do Brasil match tonight sees Gremio travel to Serie C outfit, Juventude, and despite a poor start to their campaign, I can't see the Serie A side not winning.

Renato Portaluppi's men are yet to win in the league this year, but one mitigating reason is that they have been involved in the Copa Libertadores - in which they have qualified from their group.

Juventude on the other hand are unbeaten in the league - two wins and two draws - but they were relegated to the third tier last season, and they should arguably be doing even better than they are.

Obviously they have home advantage tonight, but they will likely be outclassed by an opponent who need a win to boost their confidence.
