New York Red Bulls and New York City play in the MLS later today and our football predictions for the match include the best odds for each selection.
The Hudson River derby is one of the highlights on the MLS calendar and it was New York City that grabbed the bragging rights in their last meeting, winning 2-0 earlier this month.
The New York Red Bulls currently sit fourth in the MLS Eastern Conference table after just one victory in their last six matches. That run has also see three losses but the latest betting odds for the match show New York Red Bulls as clear favourites to win tonight, at odds of 4/6 with Betfred.
The visitors have won five of their last six MLS matches (including that win against tonight’s opponents) so their odds of 4/1 (bet365) to win are certainly appealing, especially when you think they’ve got the likes of Andrea Pirlo, Frank Lampard and David Villa in their starting 11.
WATCH: New York City beat New York Red Bulls 2-0 earlier this month:
Looking at the form of the teams I cannot get away from siding with New York City tonight. They are the outsiders to win but for a slightly safer bet we can get on a New York City win or draw at odds of 5/4 with bet365. Very appealing odds for a team at the top of the table and with five wins in their last six.

Next up I will move to the goalscorer markets and instead of going for a first goalscorer bet tonight I’ll play it slightly safer and look at the anytime scorer market. David Villa has scored 13 goals in 21 matches so far this season including the first goal in their last match against Montreal Impact. The best odds for Villa to score first against the New York Red Bulls are 13/8 with Ladbrokes.
