Football is back at Gillette Stadium tonight but not with the team you might expect. The New England Revolution is set to host the Orlando City Soccer Club in Foxboro as they look to climb out of eighth place and into MLS Cup contention.

With 19 total points, New England and Cincinnati are tied at seventh technically, but Cincy holds the tiebreaker over NE. Orlando City, meanwhile, is in fifth place with 21 points. With each win in the MLS worth three points, the Revolution can move from eighth to fifth place by beating Orlando if Cincinnati loses.

Revolution vs. Orlando City SC Prediction and Pick

At first glance, you might think that the Revolution are one of the worst teams in the MLB. And from a purely points standpoint, you’d be right. However, it’s important to realize that the Revolution are on an upswing after a dreadful start to the year. They are one game away from fifth place and are four points away from breaking into the top four teams.

In their last eight matches, the Revs are 4-1-3 with the lone loss coming at the hands of first-place New York. 

I love nothing more than betting on a team with momentum and the Revolution fill that role well. They have one loss in their last eight games and are unbeaten in their previous seven matches against Orlando City.

Since joining the league in 2015, the Lions have beaten New England twice but are 0-5-1 against them at Foxboro. Orlando City is having issues on defense as evidenced by them giving up three goals to FC Dallas in 17 minutes recently. The Lions may also be without their leading scorer Leonardo Campana as his status is in question heading into this match. 

If I learned anything in my years of sports betting it’s not to be against New England in Foxboro. This extends outside of the NFL into the MLS and I'll be on the home team tonight in the showdown of Eastern Conference rivals. 

PICK: Revolution -150 3-Way Moneyline
