We're still waiting for the final result from yesterday's bet, which was actually this morning's bet. As we chew our nails to the quick, you can take your mind off things with a gander at today's punt.

In the MLS, Chicago Fire have recently beaten Philadephia Union four times in a row at Toyota Park. At an odds-against price, we're backing them to make it five in a row tonight.

Since Veljko Paunovic took the reins, Chicago have won exactly half of all their MLS home games (22/44), including three of the last five. They've scored twice or more in 3/4 and look like they'll have too much firepower for their goal-shy visitors.

Philly have scored in only 3/8 away matches this season. Since Jim Curtin rode into town, they've lost 58% of all road games (39/67), including 6/8 so far this term. They've conceded at least three times in half of those eight matches, so we're taking them to lose again this evening.
