      Tip Reasoning

      All MLS sides seem to go through a rocky patch at some stage of the season, going on a relatively long winless run when you compare them to the top teams in the European league.

      What is important for those challenging at the top of the table is how long this period of poor form is allowed to go on. For Columbus Crew, they didn’t let it drag on.

      They went on a six match winless run back in May but sorted themselves out quickly, and as a result maintain their position challenging for the top spot in the MLS Eastern Conference.

      They are in 3rd position in the table, three points behind leaders DC United with a game in hand on them. New York Red Bulls stand in between them with one more point and two games in hand though.

      Recent form is looking pretty good. They have won three of their last five MLS matches and only lost once.

      FC Dallas may also be challenging for the MLS Western Conference top spot, but their form has started to decline recently.

      They have lost three of their last four league games, although they did manage to end this three match losing streak with a win over Real Salt Lake last weekend.

      This leaves them in 3rd position in the MLS, with a five point deficit on leaders LA Galaxy but holding three games in hand over them and two games in hand over 2nd placed Vancouver.

      Columbus Crew have the advantage in terms of historic results in this fixture. They have won three of the last five meetings between the sides and only lost once. In fact, they have only lost one home match against FC Dallas in 18 matches.

      I think this makes odds of 5/6 for a straight up Columbus Crew Win look very good value, and a correct scoreline of 2-1 at 15/2 are also looking good.
