A post shared by D.C. United (@dcunited)

D.C. United have been running the hard yards in the MLS and their intense-pressing style under Argentinean coach Hernán Losada has made them one of the league’s most entertaining outfits.

United went hell for leather again last week at Chicago Fire and after a pulsating encounter where D.C. traded blows with their hosts, the spoils were shared after a 2-2 tie at Soldier Field.

Losada’s demanding methods seem to be squeezing some career-best performances out of Norwegian striker OIa Kamara, who has finally hit form for the Black-and-Red with five goals in his last five appearances.

New York Red Bulls meanwhile, continue to struggle on the road and their 1-1 draw at Toronto last week felt like another missed opportunity. Patryk Klimala’s third goal of the campaign put them in front early in the second half, though they were pegged back by the resurgent Reds shortly after the hour mark at BMO Field.

Gerhard Struber’s misfiring troops have now won just once in seven attempts away from the Red Bull Arena this season, while their defensive record shows just three clean sheets in 19 away fixtures since July last year.

Red Bull have missed the steadying influence of injured US national team defender Aaron Long in recent outings, though they could also be without the services of fellow backliners Sean Nealis and Andrew Gutman in Washington with both players nursing injury complaints.

With NYRB’s defence looking light on fit performers, D.C United could create plenty of chances in the final third this week.

Over 2.5 Goals -110 (Draftkings)

D.C United’s last four games have averaged a whopping 4.5 goals per 90 minutes and their high-octane pressing style under Hernán Losada could lead to more edge-of-the-seat action when NYRB visit Washington.

New York Red Bulls have injury problems at the back to contend with and coach Gerhard Struber could feel that a more attacking approach is the best route to success at Audi Field as a result.

With that considered, the over 2.5 goal line could be passed for the fifth game in a row involving D.C United and we recommend taking that bet at -110 this week.

Both Teams to Score -135 (Draftkings)

Both teams to score has been a successful pick in each of D.C United’s last four fixtures and bettors could find the same market profitable when NYRB land in Washington.

New York’s dismal haul of three clean sheets in 19 away matches suggests D.C United will hit the net this week, though Red Bulls’ run of scoring in all but two of their seven away matches in the 2021 MLS campaign highlights their consistent ability to find a route to goal on the road.

At -135 with Draftkings, the BTTS prices on offer are definitely appealing.
